COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

Copper pour; aroma is citrus and grapefruit. Floral hop flavor to start, then smooths out with grapefruit and pine needles. Just enough malt to balance this. Nice beer.

It took awhile for Hopalicious to grow on me. While the light orange appearance and even head were spot on, the maltsí breadiness caught me by surprise. The latter shows up in the taste and aroma. Hops provide a citrusy freshness to the aroma and a juicy taste that appears behind the bread flavor. While I typically prefer my pale ales to be a little more aggressive, I canít deny the balance and mastery applied to Hopalicious. Itís a one-of-a-kind brew that opts for balance over bitterness.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Not as abrasive as I was expecting. Nice citrus aromas and flavors. A good IPA that had about a year of age on it.

Bottle pour. Tannish orange with a light orange aroma. Refreshing upfront that leads to a sweet squish of juice with no bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1185) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
A hazy, burnt orange pour with a frothy, white head. It has a citrus aroma with some mild earthy, pine. The medium body has sort of a slick texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter, but it lightens up in the finish.

12oz bottle 3/7/14 (Binnyís Downers Grove Mix A Six)-41į in Shaker-Pours a hazy lighter amber with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste of the same with more hops and bitterness on the back end. This medium bodied brew is super hoppy and super tasty. Nice job.

JonnyMadison (38) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Light and refreshing. All the flavors of a pale ale -- hoppy, but with a bright citrus and pine taste. I dislike most pale ales because of the bitter aftertaste, but Hopalicious is not bitter at all and the aftertaste is pleasant. Excellent!

Scipio (701) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pours a hazy darker golden with a medium white head. The aroma has grassy and citrus hops, orange, caramel malts, and light pine. Taste brings in a good amount of piney bitterness. I find grapefruit, pineapple, and some slight orange. I donít get much maltiness that I detected earlier. Short aftertaste is pine. Light in body, with a slick texture, with some lively carbonation. This one is crisp and is easy drinking. Refreshing actually. This is a solid beer.

Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours a very hazy golden/orange with a finger of white head that dissipates very quickly to a thin ring. Moderate carbonation and decent lacing. Nose is all citrus. A ton of grapefruit and orange with a slight sweetness brought on by pineapple and grapes. Mouth is almost the same. All citrus. You can really get the balance of cascade and citra hops. Great finish with a slight bitterness. Very good APA!

First of all, 11 additions! Crazy. Bottle thanks to cbfobes. Pours a hazy golden orange hazy color with a slight white head. Light citrusy aroma, some tangerine, slight grass. Taste is light and just a hint of bitterness. Light body and medium high carb. Extremely drinkable but light on flavor compared to the best of the best. Still a great beer that I could enjoy all day.
