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.

A hazy copper color. head is creamy in both color and in texture. Nice looking beer. Smells enticing with a notable piney-ness to go along with the standard punchy citrus American hops. My guess would be Centennial. Also a pleasant malty sweet smell mixed in as well. Strong bitterness, but a clean balanced mouthfeel. Wide range of hop flavors. Maltiness is just enough, slightly filling out the body. Alcohol is obvious but not offputting or hot/burning. Mouthfeel medium-thin, well suiting to the beer. Easy drinking considering how intense the ABV and flavor's are. Always respected and enjoyed this beer.
