COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Som en rasende drage vil Hoptilicus med malttunge skridt hensynsløst trampe ind over din tunge, hærge dine sagesløse smagsløg med heftige 80 IBU humlebitterhed, hvorefter den udspyr flammende alkohol over din drøbel og din krops mest sårbare bløddele.
Brygget af obskøne mængder pale ale malt, rigeligt med karamelmalt, en smule black malt for farvens skyld, samt det fineste lollandske enkelt-marks roesukker. Maltprofilen er balanceret af den citrale og frugtige Centennial humle og den lidt skarpe, fyrnåleagtige Chinook humle. Resultatet er en stærk, men letdrikkelig ale, der både kan nydes af ballonglas med ristet rugbrød og stærk ost eller i festligt lag med vennerne (med 9% alkohol, kan det dog godt risikere at blive en kort aften).

Poured a nice clear orange with little head. Hops and fruit on the nose. Not much bitterness. Certainly pleasant, if underwhelming.

mkam (147) - POLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark copper with a big, medium-bobbled head. Aroma of mal, caramel and hops in background - quite pleasant. Beer is full bodied, in taste mainly sweet malt notes with a bitter finish. Alcohol very well hidden - only little warming sensation in the finish. Very good strong ale.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy at the lake, May long weekend. This beer was very much like the Red Hops, murky, earthy, with sweet stone fruit character and low bitterness. This may have been a touch more dusty. Ok.

Dr_Fellini (387) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky deep amber ruddy brown color with a frothy light brown head. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, molasses, bourbony, boozy. Flavor is caramel malts and booze. Not much hop profile found anywhere in the beer, but it may not be the freshest. Medium in body with a lingering sweet boozy character. Solid strong ale.

Zymurgeist2 (980) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
From bottle to tulip. Massive grain, moderate wet grass and alcohol. Slight floral. Very hazy copper with off white head that leaves a ring and slight lacing. Old fruit and caramel. Moderate low bitterness with an astringent finish.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from Corti Bros. Pours very hazy dark amber with a creamy beige/tan head. Lots of hop and some fairly roasty malt for aroma. Hop is sort of earthy. Med body. Flavor is earthy with roasty malt. Medium dark fruits. Seems to be a lot of hop, but it’s not extremely bitter - there is a mild hop burn. Unless that’s heat. In the mouth, but not the gullet, so hop. With time the aroma seems to become a bit oxidized. But the earthy flavor hides any oxidation for me.
