Tree Brewing - Hop Head IPA

5.6% ABV

"Over a decade ago, we brewed one of the most innovative IPA's in Craft Brewing. To this day, our award winning IPA is the benchmark for Real IPA's...as our saying goes "Drink Real Ale Cause Bud Is Just For Smoking"! Hop Head is full bodied and loaded with hops, delivering a distinct taste and aroma."

The Pour

This IPA pours a nice copper colour with a 1 inch off white head. Nice lacing that stays around for a while.

The Aroma

The smell is great with strong malt, hop and pine notes. Some hints of citrus too.

The Taste

This is a full body IPA with a creamy mouth feel. Strong hops bring out a nice pine and citrus profile. This beer has a considerable malt taste as well.

Overall Impressions

This was a very well balanced IPA that can give the U.S. micro brews a run for the money. Does it compare to the Dogfish 60 min....close! I would not hesitate to pick this up again. I would rate this a 8.5 out of 10.
