Notes / Commercial Description:
Legend Hopfest begins with a sturdy barley malt background including Munich and aromatic malts, as well as a few medium kilned malts producing a rich , deep orange colored beer. Step two, the hops; Hopfest sports a distinct pine/fruit aroma. Expect an intensely flavored brew, with hop flavor lasting throughout. There is a toasty, earthy background, adding a rich, malty dimension to the long finish. The end result is a full flavored IPA with a strong malt backbone and long satisfying hop finish.

Purchased at Poseidon's Pantry Gourmet Grocery and Deli on Chincoteague Island, VA.

Pours an almost clear deep orange with a 2 1/2 finger off white head that becomes chunky as it recedes and leaves some decent lacing.

Fair amount of sweet malt in the aroma balanced by fruity/piney hops. Over ripe citrus and malt syrup.

Not as sweet as the nose, but still the malt shows through. Grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, bitter grapefruit peel.

Medium-plus in body. Light carbonation, light syrup, and slightly warming.

A pretty good beer. Satisfying and an easy drinker. Well rounded. I would try this again.
