Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspiration for our newest Hop Patrol IPA comes from the House of Faun in Pompeii, Italy. At this site, some of the world’s most famous mosaics were preserved under layers of ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In this fashion, Pompeii IPA preserves and showcases the luxurious taste of the Mosaic hop. This single-hop IPA offers a floral aroma and a truly complex “mosaic” of taste: dark citrus and pineapple flavors, with deep earthy undertones and a persistent bitterness in the finish.

Taste: gentle mosaic hops, crisp clean finish, herbal and some malt sweetness. Floral garden hop nose. Golden hue, clear, tall white foam head with a sticky lattice of lace. Medium body. Enjoyable to the last drop. 60 IBUs

Pours darker yellow bur clearer than the scorpious double ipa of the same brewery. Fruity smell and fruity flavor. Definitely milder than the scorpious. 13Oz draft $8 @ The Fix in Worcester,MA.

16 oz. can

Pours hazy cloudy golden orange with a creamy white foam head. Smells like mango, pineapple, papaya, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, fruity dark berry, some caramelized bready malt, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Taste follows with notes of mango, pineapple, papaya, orange citrus, lemon, grapefruit pith, dark berry, bready caramelized malt, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy thick with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a really nice Mosaic hopped IPA.
