Bull & Bush Hop Karl

I met up with Lee from Hoptopia for lunch in Denver at Row 14, as they were having a fresh hop beer event. The only beer that had since it was the first day of the promotion was the Bull & Bush Hop Karl, but I didn't hesitate to give it a try. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head. The aroma consists of caramel, ice cream (weird, I know), grass, and pine. The taste is dry but has a wonderfully sweet caramel undertone. There were plenty of earthy hops strewn across this beer with dirt and grass accents and hints of pine and lemon. The alcohol content is not available online but I would guess it to be about 5.5% ABV. This was certainly a delicious harvest ale that hit all of the right notes, from fresh hops to caramel flavors.
