Hop City Brewing Co. Hopbot IPA American IPA at 7.1% ABV

Pours a clear copper with good persistence of an aggressively poured fluffy three finger head, moderate sticky lacing. Nose is pleasantly hoppy, pine and grapefruit, with faint caramel malt. Taste is similar, but the sweet caramel malt is somewhat more pronounced, with the pine and grapefruit notes coming in late. Medium body, good sustained carbonation, and slightly creamy mouth feel, with a resiny finish.

Definitely a far better product than their lager, which was disappointingly bland. Decent hop presence in the nose, slightly less pronounced on the tongue. A very decent option for a locally available brew, and a welcome addition to the NLC lineup.
