The usual Thursday night get together was interrupted by the first snow storm of the season. Rich, being an American craft beer trooper, made it out in his over sized, 4-wheel drive vehicle. So we shared three American craft beers. We had:
All three beers were solid but I am choosing HopArt as today’s beer. Why? Hopslam is just coiming out in my area and I will have my fill tonight 🙂 and I picked up six of the Daly Double (not all for myself), placing my thoughts in an earlier sips entry.
HopArt has a nice compliment of citrus, fruity, and pine hops that play perfectly together in the aroma and taste. The malt sweetness is held back by the hops while allowing a bitterness that lingers without being obtrusive.
It has been a year since my first and only other HopArt tasting. The experience was equally fulfilling but hopefully I won’t have to wait another year for my third helping. Enjoy!
