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.

fantastic IPA if you can find it on tap. Great out of the bottle too. Hoppy but not over the top. A good session beer, but beware this one will sneak up on you.

Stumbled across this one while on standby at an airport in Maryland. Honey to slightly orange colored tap pour with a thin head and good lacing. A hoppy scent leads to a fruit basket of flavors, with a light bitter finish. I also get faint lemon. A well balanced and solid ale with lots going on. This beer was the only thing that went right that day LOL!

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in November 2014.

Appearance: Golden color, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with some hops bitterness in the aroma, as well as a strong citrus aroma. There is some sweet aroma, which contrasts with the hops for a nice aroma.

Taste: An interesting mix of hops, citrus, and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex IPA, but with a little bit of sweetness. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting and complex IPA. There is a variety of flavors, and the hops do not overshadow the other flavors.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (best by 2/8/15 14200)

A: Hazy copper color with a decent head that leaves a nice collar and some lacing.
S: Nice singluar note of some floral, pungent fruit.
T: A subdued version of the nose. Even flavor that has a nice bitterness to it. It seems to kind of break down a bit in flavor towards the end. I'm getting some weird flavors, but that might just be from the aftertaste.
M: Fuzzy carbonation to it that is nice and soft.
O: Just a good local IPA.
