Bad Weather Hopcromancer IPA

Bad Weather Hopcromancer IPA. Bad Weather Brewing, St. Paul, MN.

"Beer for any season!" "Fresh beer, drink cold!"
"Pairs well with cool summer nights, warm late autumn days, winter BBQs, rainy spring mornings."
"Don't like the weather? CAN IT!"

7.0% ABV. 70 IBU. 12 fluid ounce can.

Hazed, crimson/amber coloration, beautiful ivory, lace-leaving head.

In the nose: fine and mellow, nicely hoppy. Floral and slightly citric. Starts out shy, but blossoms wth fruity associations. Gets plumper as we go. Tropical tones, too.

In the mouth: Mmm. Bright, zesty, fruit-laden, tangerine and melon, orange, lime, and pineapple. Blueberry? A touch. Much malt in this, just enough balance, just enough everything. A very tasty IPA. Hops bounce and trounce and step all over the palate. Just delightful.

From the label: "Biscuit like malt character with tons of juicy hops. Pineapple, citrus, melon and just a hint of pine envelope the aroma. Pours gold with a dense white foam."
