Capital Brewery Hop Cream

The Capital Brewery is in Middleton, Wisconsin.  This is 5.3% ABV and 35 IBU's, and according to the bottle it features an "upfront hop aroma and flavor that evolves into a surprising rich, smooth finish."

The beer pours a deep golden orange, heading to copper.  There is a tall half-inch of thick and creamy white foam.  The aroma is solidly malty, but also with a fresh, grassy hop aroma.  The taste follows the aromas directly, solidly malty, touch of sweet potato, with a grassy hop finish that ends with just the right bitterness.  The mouthfeel is rich and creamy.  I would say this is a good session beer for fall and spring, perhaps a bit too rich for a real hot summer day.
