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.

Pours a golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma and Taste is of citrus and pine hops, a nice dose of caramel malt, yeast with a mild orange peel flavor and mild hops bitterness. A medium body and smooth mouth feel on the palate, mild carbonation. The finish is sweet caramel malt, citrus, mild orange undertones with some pine and citrus hops for balance. Not an overly hopped brew and nicely balanced. Overall a tasty and good drinking brew.
