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.

Bottle. Orange color with small white head. Aroma is piney, tangerines, orange peel. Taste is slightly oxidized, piney, bitter finish, carbonation. Bottle was probably a bit too old, close to its BB date. Still ok.

Ritzn (199) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Slightly hazy amber, orange, light brown with little white head. Aroma is pine cone, orange, fresh grassy hops. Taste is bitter hoppyness, with some more bitter sour fruits. A little too bitter for me. But still nice. Long dry finish with also more sourness. Not much carbonation. Not so easy to drink. Overall good.

ccex (1182) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2016
12 oz. bottle pours a cloudy orange with medium off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is as expected: lots of orange peel and citrus hops with noticeable caramel malts. Taste is bitter at first with a huge sweet caramel/toffee middle. The finish is bitter again with an odd aftertaste that is both metallic and malty. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Sadly, this IPA is not "apart from the masses"
