Hop Riot IPAHop Riot IPA
Notes: Hop Riot IPA is our flagship beer. Brewed in the American IPA style with a definitive "Left Coast" attitude. We brew our IPA with an aggressive bittering level which is complimented and balanced by a defined malt backbone. Our final signature is the dry hop step where fresh hops are immersed in the finished beer to provide the floral and citrus aromas of our IPA, a Hop Riot indeed.

Dark pour, way darker than most ipas, so much that the head was off white. Aroma was c hoppy. Average.

huge bitterness ipa, like you took a time machine back to '97. Alcohol is pronounced for style and abv. While a relatively cheap bomber, its still only a few bucks cheaper than world class 6 packs, so I'll pass on this in the future. It does one thing. Its bitter.

L: Pours brilliant amber under a rocky 3” clingy white foam cap.
S: Glass smells like the inside of a lawn mower bag with a couple of cut up oranges and grapefruit thrown in.
T: Rich intense hop flavors on a rich malt background with caramel notes. After initial malt attack finishes grassy with citrus notes.
F: A creamy rich texture feels very soft in the mouth with a medium body and medium carbonation.
O: A big creamy rich American IPA with a delightful texture.

Pours a clearish golden color with soapy white foam head. An earthy, herbally, grapefruit rind aroma. A sharp herbal citris and hoppiness up front with a bitterness following right after. Has a lingering finish. A solid brew.

22 ounce bottle at fridge temp poured into a pint glass. Date code is 15/22N/365/13/13.10, printed on the bottom in nearly illegible type.

Pours clear amber golden, medium head fades three quarters of the way down pretty quickly, and then stalls. Lots of very fine, very slow active carbonation. Smell is nice. Grassy, mostly. Some bready.

Taste pretty good. A citrus splash up front and grapefruit rind in the back, some pine finish. Slight old hop flavor. Wish I could understand the date code.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Medium body, lightly effervescent. Overall, pretty good.
