COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This powerfully hoppy ale is bursting with fruity hop flavor. North American and New Zealand hops give Hyperion profound citrus and tropical fruit notes, rounded out by a subtle, complex maltiness.

Dark amber pour from draft at atlas. Menu says 8.5%. Thin head. Aroma of pine and mild caramel. Taste is citrus and pine with big hops and mild bitterness. Almost my wheelhouse. Goooood beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on tap at Atlas in Chicago. Hazy golden color with a thick white head. Hopped grapefruit aroma. Citrus flavor that’s hoppy up top. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HighWine (950) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Tap flight at the brewpub. Light golden pour with a foamy white head. Juicy tropical fruit nose. Taste is similar with honeydew and casaba Mellon. Not at all astringent and very drinkable. Small in the mouth with Mellon flavors staying behind. Nice.

4 oz. taster at Atlas. My nose has a bit of a cold tonight, but this is the first beer here where I really got a good whiff before tasting it. Thanks to the elevated alcohol content (which the beer list now shows as 8.7% instead of 10%). A nice alcohol delivery system that can sometimes overwhelm the hops. Lots of chewy malts matched to a full citrus hop note. They say grapefruit, but I didn’t see it as being that tart. Just some citrusy goodness. I would almost think this beer could hold its own against a Hopslam.

Rich citrus hoppy aroma. Golden amber with a soapy off-white head that leaves a sleeve of lacing down the glass. Full bitter flavor, somewhat thin body. Good solid hop forward IPA.

rubbishystuff (1814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
At the brewpub. I liked this one, Got the balance pretty spot on. Grapefruity hops with out being too over powering very overall fruitiness to the beer. Serving: Tap

deyholla (6520) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus and earthy grapefruit with a slightly sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more bitter grapefruit with a hint of pine that mellow slightly in to citrus and sweet grain in the finish.

4oz pour. Poured a medium and clear orangish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of melons, caramel, floral hops, and citrus. Tastes of toasted malts, caramel, citrus and had a lighter grapefruit finish.
