BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Joseph James Brewing Inc.
Nevada, United States
jjbrewco.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Hop Box is our tribute to hops! Bury your nose in a glass and inhale. Pungent aromas immediately enrich your senses. Hop Box has both pine and citrus notes that arise from the bucketfuls of hops we add to the kettle and again into the fermentation tanks. We attempt to pack as much hop flavor and aroma into your glass as possible. Drink in the rich resinous flavors that elevate the heady aromatics. The hop box sips crisp and finishes dry with a lingering bitterness that begs you to take another sip.

L: little hazy with a orange yellow amber color with 3 fingers of head and lacy.

S: smells of sweetness, mall and a bit of citrus. Pineapple and Grapefruit. Smell is deceiving to taste. With hops as well.

T: Hoppy with a sweet caramel bite, bit floral but really can't taste citrus or hops, pretty dissapointing.

F: feel a bit of carbonation, not real heavy just not great.

O: very disappointed for this local brewery 8.2 ABV and 90 bitterness. Just not there. The hops is average at best. Does not taste like a west coast style IPA at all. Overall would not purchase this again. Very dissapointing.

Very piney, nutty finish. Very pleasant IPA. Is drink another. The finish makes this beer.
