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.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle: Clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma is bready and grainy....orange. Taste is orange-peel, caramel malt. Dull, heavy bitter. Ok...but not very lively...or well balanced.

crossovert (7305) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 355ml bottle. Bottled in June. Bottle says 118 ibu which is about as high as it gets. Smber/orange gold pour. SMell is biscuit, herb, and orange. The flavor is huge orange, just huge, a cutting bitterness as well. A bit sweet but overall if you like citrus oriented ipas you’ll like it. Edit: as it warms it gets more malty and vegetal. Don’t normally say this but drink this ipa ice cold.

Not a bad orange hop smell. Flavor of malts. Minimal hop flavor and not much orange in the body.

czar (4292) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
pours hazy golden orange with a small light beige-orange, some retention and lacing. sweet and doughy caramel, fruitiness - over-ripened peaches and oranges, maybe a hint of citrus peel, lightly sour-ish red fruits, dill, pine, bitter herbs, some sweetness. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - oily, bit sticky, sweet-ish and assertive if not harsgh citrusy-spicy-piney finish. plain, linear, strong and sweet ipa with a dash of orange.. clearly unbalanced. blah.

BVery (6119) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Murky orange pour with a small soapy head. Orange and grapefruit rind in this, plus a little metallic element. Not bad, not great.

Sammer (1030) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Tastes just like you would expect something brewed in the rust belt to taste. Hops, steel, funk and wood. Average.

milewide (1499) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2014
IMO, this is more of an IIPA than an amber. Really bitter hop aftertaste. Rich body. Not much malt sweetness, but it was there for body.
