American IPA |  7.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Named after the hop flower Humulus Lupulus, this India Pale Ale style beer has enormous amounts of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. With a very complex malt bill, flavors seem to meld with the hops to balance this ale and provide a ridiculous urge to sample more.
140 IBU

a bottle-conditioned version from the brewery courtesy of camil1mj & tjohn2401... thanks guys!

chilled quickly out of the box and poured into a pint glass. pours a cloudy marigold with a little head that sticks around for a while. it almost looks like a wheat beer, but the aroma is all ipa - sweet floral hops with a bit of muted pine and a surprising wallop of wheat-y malt. the flavor is heavy on the malts - it's thick and sweet on the front end, with the bitterness of the hops coming in at the end. this is a surprising ipa in the same way that i'm surprised by gumballhead (or as the other side of a similar coin). it's an ipa that is thick and wheat-y with a good backbone of hops. confusing, but it works.
