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.

Starts with a peppery spice flavor, followed by mild citrus notes, slightly watery and thin. Some bitterness.

Definitely a bit underwhelmed by this one. Tasted no better than Founders All Day IPA... A session beer

Sampled pour from a 22 oz bottle. Pours a bright brassy orange with a huge amount of hop haze. Can barely see the shadow of my hand behind the glass. A solid finger of dense fluffy head. Nose is outstanding - tropical fruit including mango, pineapple and guava.'Reminds me of the POG juice Hawaiian Airlines serves on flights. Taste is dominated by the fruit but is somewhat balanced with new mown grass and a finishing hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is sparkly and clean - effervescent. Fantastic beer that I enjoy more than the much heralded Sue from TG.

Served in a tulip glass.

A- excellent lacing, foamy thick head, cloudy orange glow in the body. 4.5

S- mango and passionfruit, but then plastic and pissiness. 3.75

T- still getting something like plastic or maybe cardboard, but then a rich mango and passionfruit flavor. The flavor feels a tad subdued too and leaves me wanting a bit more. 3.5

M- The carbonation is pretty heavy and detracts from the otherwise creamy and rich body. The bitterness is mellow and it finishes similar to biting into an orange. 4

Some real nice flavor here but also some oddity in taste, nose and feel.
