Notes/Commercial Description:
Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

Thanks to cmmcdonn for sending me this awesome beer!

Poured a beautiful copper color with a white 1.5 finger head that settled rather quickly but leaves some nice sticky lace.

A=Incredible aromas of citrus fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and some sweet malts round this out. I could smell this glass forever, except for the fact that my mouth is watering in anticipation.

T=Again getting some grapefruit and pineapple flavors with a nice sweet malt backbone to balance it out. Now, this beer is good, really good, but from the aroma, I really expected much more from this. Doesn't quite live up to the initial aromas for some reason.

M=Nice medium, creamy.

O=This is a really great beer, excellent in fact. I would purchase this on the regular if it were available to me.
