Our Hoptopus IPA is an 8-legged hopheadís dream. Its 8.8% ABV malt base balances with 8 separate additions of hops, 88 IBUs, and a foolishly generous dry-hop to make this denizen of the deep a lupulin delight.

Thanks to a PUBíR operative for this. Pours hazy straw with off-white head. Nose is floral and dry-hopped deliciousness, with honeydew, mango, white pepper, and thatís just the nose. Tastes floral, hoppy, resiny, a true 88 IBU worth, as such, with a super smooth finish, velvety, more resiny hops white pepper, mango, delicious!

Tap. Pours clear golden, small white head, creamy, decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, hints of pine. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, classic and clean. Medium body, lingering bitterness.

Delicious IIPA courtesy of Dave from Abjuration Brewing. Thanks! Aroma was big and full of hops. Hot lemon peel, grass and grapefruit find. Pour was a beautiful hazy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was big and hoppy. Definitely more on the tropical fruit hoppiness of things but the bitter grapefruit held its own and shone through. Malt backbone present but not sweet. Overall a pleasant and hoppy IIPA. Good carbonation.

ctipping (1425) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2016
16 oz. can. Clear orange. I donít smell much. Resiny pine hops. Some grapefruit. Some caramel malt. Taste is more defined. Strong malt presence. Caramel and bready malts. Strong resiny pine hop flavor. Quickly builds in bitterness. Pine hop bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium heavy. Not a hop bomb by any means, but itís a decent IPA.

Not a west coast style iipa at all. Lots of sweet malt and not a ton of citrus. I feel like I was lied to by the can.

Not really my style of DIPA. Really malty balance that doesnít allow for the dry hopped thatís advertised. Enjoyable once it warms up but just not meeting my expectations for the hop characteristics found in amazing DIPAís.

Large white head, rocky, lasting. Hazy, gold color. Lotsa co2 in the nose, slight citrus and pine. med/full body, wacky carbonation. Slightly sweet caramel malts, butterscotch, hint of citrus and pine. co2 is rough. Dry, bitter finish. Meh. 16oz can
