Beer Authority grapples the Hops of Wrath

BA on 7.13.2010

Dust Bowl Hops of Wrath IPA

Commercial Description: Our first beer brewed and released to the market. Hops of Wrath is an India Pale Ale with moderate bitterness and a solid malt backbone. It has a fruity, citrus aroma, bright hop flavor and clean finish.

2.9 Aroma:  3 Appearance: 4 Taste: 5 Palate: 4 Overall: 13

Bottle on a trade - thanks!  Nose was absent, only a slight sweetness of malt - not much hop.  Poured a thin white head with good lacing.  Nice sunset orange color.  Balanced flavor, although I wish there was much more of it.  Finishing bitterness was nice if modest - has my taste moved that far to the dark side of bitterness?  Full body on the tongue made it very quaffable.  Overall this is a nice beer that gets better with each nip.
