Urthel Hop-it body is a slightly hazy peach color producing a 1-finger bubbly white head that left a nice lacing on my tulip glass. The nose is a mix of citrus, yeast and a bit of hops. The taste of citrus and malt is up front followed by piney hop bitterness and pepper/spice. The aftertaste is slightly hoppy. Mouth feel is smooth, and crisp with a medium body.

Overall, a very drinkable ale that is not too hoppy for this non hop heads.

Hazy straw color. Lightly funky in nose and flavor. Light-bodied but the flavor profile has more malt than hops - even on the finish. The hoppiness becomes more assertive halfway through the glass but a sweet note remains throughout.

Served in a Urthel signature beer glass. (Looks like a flat-bottomed tulip glass)

Appearance: A dark transparent amber color with light bubbles to the body. Thin (white) head with a hard pour and at best rose to about 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Bland light smell with a yeast after tone scent. Super light, once it warms up it kicks up a notch but doesn't mean it smells anywhere near addicting.

Taste: Complex but has a over powering lemon feel to it that I can't quite shake the sourness off of my mouth. Heavy hops and super malty which in most situations is great but this brew is definitely not built for everyone.

Mouth: Citris feel with a heavy carbonation to the body. Sticky, and quite honestly rarely I say this...best property of the beer.

Overall: Not a bad grew at all but factoring in the price and availability it has major holes in it. Hate to sound like this but it could use some tweaking. Worth just to split it with a friend or maybe like I did and watch some reruns of SoA. Salud!
