Notes / Commercial Description:
Hopulent IPA is a big beer with lots of complex malt flavor and excessive hops. This beer will have changes to the grain bill and seasonal hop changes. The character of Hopulent IPA is over the top, too much of everything—a real HOP HEADS DELIGHT!

A: Hazy tea tinted gold under a 2” foam collar composed of uniform, fine bubbles that cling to the side of the glass leaving sheets of lace.
S: Citrus and grapefruit, some earthiness.
T: Fruity palate with citrus, apricot, grapefruit, light caramel, biscuit, gives way to a big grapefruit rind bitterness.
F: Creamy smooth, medium to a touch above on the body, medium carbonation, slight astringency from the hops on the finish.
O: A big, bold double IPA with everything dialed up to 11.

I've only ever had this beer on nitro (it's the "go to" nitro tap at Bru Grill & Market in Lake Forest) and it's been exceptional in that format. Very creamy mouthfeel with a well balanced bitterness. When served on nitro, this is definitely an above average beer.
