"Bound to satisfy".
Current description: Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!
Previous description: Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added.

Tranquillity (1878) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Quite light, and the aroma is ok. The palate is light but it’s quite hoppy, and this is a great beer considering the low alcohol percentage.

Clear bottle at work. Aroma is skunky, veg hops, chive and metal. Hint of caramel. Clear orange colour with a frothy off white head. Flavour is grassy stale hops. Nutty flabby malt character. not very good at all.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Bottled 15/03/14. An orange gold coloured beer with an off-white head. Citrus and toffee throughout with some sweet cardboard from the pasteurization. Passable but a bit artificially forced of flavour. Score 2.8
Subsequent rating scored 3.3. Average becomes 3.0

MrHangover (4025) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a small, loose white head on top. Aroma of skunky hops, caramel and sugar. Flavor is medium bitter and malty. Thin mouthfeel, not very much complexity going on here. Short aftertaste. Decent bitter, but overall not very impressive. Good sessionable though.

Sample at a tasting. Golden body with a medium white head. Some malt and hops, but this hare tastes mostly cabbage...

distinctive taste but could be a bit more lively on the tongue. A nice colour and keeps the head all the way down. Not offensive but was hoping for more from the triple hops
