Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Higravity on 09-09-2005

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 somewhat of an orange gold color with white head. Citrus, pine, grass, on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hop bite that is then balanced out with the malt.

Look - yellowish golden color with a good head and lacing.
Smell - piney citrus smell
Taste - very similar to the smell. Pretty bitter and lots of grapefruit citrus and some pine. Good malt backbone.
Feel - medium lite body and carbonation. Goes down smooth.
Overall - great beer but could use more carbonation and body.

Off keg at Blue5 in Roanoke, VA. Very clear golden Amber with thin off white head which laces nicely. Slight citrus/piney aroma. Somewhat thick mouth feel. Nicely balanced bitterness with sweet undertones. Overall a very tasty ale. I'll have another soon!
