COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A frontal assault on the American IPA style that features not only the classic American Cascade and Chinook hops, but two of the new “Super Cascade” varieties in both the kettle and in the dry hop. Dried and ground orange peel is added to the whirlpool to deliver a citric bittering that sets HopApeel apart from the masses.

Headbanger (3723) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draft 2/4/15 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and slight malt. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is pretty well balanced and goes down smooth.

Suttree (5844) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Murky brownish orange, with a nice sized white head. Smells grassy, grainy, and a little citrusy. Lots of earthy malts in the taste, then an oddly rough woody finish.

nearbeer (4610) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2015
12 oz. bottled Sep. 2015. Clear orange-copper body has a lasting disc of cream. Nose is earthy toffee and tangerine. Tastes of earthy toffee, orange hard candy and citrus zest. Dry, acidic finish has a little much citrus zest for my buds. Near-medium body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and hides the 7.5 well.

jgb9348 (5431) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Crisp amber and copper coloured body with a large, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, bread and a bit of hops - no citrus at all yet. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty and earthy malt up front with some toffee and a very light, layered sweetness of flowers, oranges and caramel, with some grassiness and a bit of metal on the finish. Aftertaste is relatively subdued with some sweetness and earthy malt with toffee and little else - no hop bitterness and only some faint orange flavours. Overall, a decent beer at best, without any hop qualities or citrus notes, this is a bit underwhelming. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-October-2015.

From a bottle into a snifter. Moderately clear intense orange color mostly clear with a bit of cloudiness. Orange, lemon citrus on the nose, some sweet caramel malt background also. Smooth light body with low carbonation, slight sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Okay.
