Notes / Commercial Description:
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.
