I happen to love hops, therefore I love this beer. Draft pour. Hop storm with a bitter finish. Loved it.

Bottle, Dr Murphy's. Big off white head, not retained. Mid amber colour, mild chill haze, clearing to light amber. Aroma of Pine,grass, pepper and grape fruit initially deepening to resin and toast, with hints of melon and French Brie? Big spicy hop pallet, covers the tongue with no room for malts, but I sense that was the brewers intention. This beer is not about a well balanced Malt foundation, it's a celebration of hop character. Chinook in the kettle, and potentially Amarillo and Casacade. A great beer for those looking to discover big North American hops. Drink one!!!

Robust IPA with a mellow after taste, enjoyable for any hop lover. High ABV sitting at a strong 7.5% Beer goes really well with BBQ ribs.

When a beers name starts with hops its not surprising when the taste is in accordance with that. The lacing on the glass tells me that my drinks per pint goes down as the number of beers I drink goes up. The colder this beer is served the better it is. It’s rough at first but they say the body gets used to anything and it does. Drink the 6 and wear the hop crown.

Very bitter in taste.
The bitterness overwhelms the flavours and is hard to get past.

Kind of a skunky taste, but "ok". A subpar imperial, but by god this is the coolest bottle design ever! I love this dude holding a bottle in one hand a hop stick or whatever in the other...awesome!

(Backlog) Bright orange color with a light white head. Pineapple pepper mix in the smell with some yeast and earth. Taste is much like the smell medium bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours orange with thin white head that lingers. Mild hop aroma over medium carbonation. Bitter with no complexity and a bit boozy. Not great.

Brown, a bit hazy body with small white head. Not that strong aroma with hops and some grass. Mouthfeel is oily at first, then soft with medium carbonation, it’s quite big actually. Taste itself is dry, mostly bitter, right about what you’d expect from an IIPA. It’s pretty average in its category but overall, not too bad.
