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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light hazy golden orange with a light white head. Not much lace, spots and streaks, but a bit of syrupy liquid cling.

Nose is light bread, some tropical fruit, like and citrus. English ale yeast.

Light bready malt with a firm burst of citrus. Hop oil drying the mouth and lingering lightly.

Crisp and smooth carbonation makes for a lighter feel than the weight would present. Velvety.

A nice deceptively drinkable high abv hop bomb.
