The appearance has an amber color with a small white head and lots of fine-grain sediment, and the aroma fuses resin and grassy hops with pale malts. The taste is mildly bitter and slightly sour, and the palate fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a slightly bitter finish.

Tap- Aroma is mild citrus and grapefruit hops. Taste is well balanced with nice grainy malt and subtle citrus hops on finish. Palate is creamy and medium body. Overall a nice tasting beer, I could drink a few of these.

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 malts’ 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 can’t deny the balance and mastery applied to Hopalicious. It’s a one-of-a-kind brew that opts for balance over bitterness.

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. Pretty smooth and sessionable.

Bottle pour. Tannish orange with a light orange aroma. Refreshing upfront that leads to a sweet squish of juice with no bitterness.

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 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix A Six)-41° 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.

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!
