Notes / Commercial Description:
Clean this mess up or else we'll all end up in jail...those test tubes and the scale...just get 'em all outta here..." He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the BIG brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant craft beer made here. But wrong he was. The New Brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the mountain of extracts will replace the mountain of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.

L: Clear orange with a small white head that mostly dissipates after a few minutes. A thin ring on the outer edges remains indefinitely, leaving some splotchy lacing down the sides.

S: Big bitter grapefruit peel and orange peel, light brown sugar, catnip, weed, the signature burnt rubber, and soft pine.

T: Big bittersweet grapefruit and orange upfront--white grapefruit flesh and orange peel. Hints of guava, papaya, and mango. Light brown sugar malt, but crisp and not overly sweet. Some dankness, and earthy, woody, bark-like pine. Finishes remarkably crisp and clean, lightly dry, alcohol completely hidden. An aftertaste of bitter orange and grapefruit peel lingers for a few minutes.

F: Medium, well-carbonated, crisp, clean, and lightly dry. Very drinkable.
