3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a deep orange-amber with a large never-ending frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, resiny hops, floral notes and some fruit. Resiny and floral hops flavour along with caramel malt and a long moderate to big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good, not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20

S: Oats, Grainy Malts, Mildly Piney
T: Grainy, Mildly Piney, Mild Bittering Hops
M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Drying, Mildly Bitter
Overall, just a kind of boring IPA with not much flair...certainly didnt deliver with the listed Simcoe and Centennial Hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle. Pours a pretty orange with nice white head. Not much nose, particularly for something called Hop Hash. Fruit with some spice, hop profile lacking. Decent, but fell well short of my expectations.
