The ThunderHop I.P.A. has an intense bitterness, flavor and aroma. We chose to use two varieties of American hops in the brewing process. The color is copper to amber and the aroma is noticeably hoppy due to the use of Glaciers in the dry hop process. You will also pick up a complexity from fruit-like esters. The body is big and malty with some caramel sweetness.

Bottle from Capones - Amber color with a medium head. Aroma is big and citrusy with some sweet, sugary essences. Flavor is a bit citrusy and piney with some sweet malts, but lacks a dominant "punch" that I would appreciate in the style (I would call it a regular IPA). Not bad at all - good stuff, just not in the "outstanding" category.

12 oz bottle. Poured a dirty water brown with little carbonation and hardly any head. Smelled like wet bark. The hops were strong but one dimensional- all bitter and hard on the palate without any floral or citrus on the nose. There are so many better IPAs out there. Thundercr@p.

Pours a cloudy light brownish copper with a medium sized white head. Beautiful aroma of faint grapefruit, grassy pine notes and sour hard candy. Taste of grapefruit with light piney resin and grass. Has a finish of lemon tea flavor. Surprisingly good.

Poured a slightly hazed amber with a large off-white head. The aroma is of those old fancy hard candy. They were shaped like a rectangular block and wrapped in a white paper that was folded over on the ends. The label had a picture of the fruit gel that was in the middle of the candy as well as the overall flavor. In this case it is the strawberry one. The flavor is of citrus, pine and earth with a moderately bitter finish.

Bottle from cheapdark. Thanks man! Aromas of grapefruit and some sweet malts. Perhaps some toast. The beer pours a very nice color that one could describe as burnt sienna from that crayon box. Grapefruit and floral hops precede a decent malt backbone that is made up of caramel and toast. The malt becomes a little sweet, but it does balance the beer. I do get the vegetative note slightly, but it is moderate at most. Some floral hops linger on the palate as well as a light sweetness. Becomes a little astringent at times. It works, but it is not as assertive as I like my IIPA’s to be.

bottle from linus stick: pours a caramel brown with a small off white head. aroma is pine and grapefruit rind hops amd a deep sweet malt under that. the flavour is alomost grassy a nd bitter the hops come out in the finish as slight grapefruit rind the malt seems to be hidden in the beer and there is really not much to the flavour, just average to me.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Thanks to Jason for this one. Little head, amber body. Thick floral, chewy hop aroma. Flavor has a strong hop bite, some vegetative celery, and an earthiness.

MrBunn (2643) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Bottle. Has a nice reddish copper hue with a head that lets me know it is hop heavy. That said, aromas are fairly mild and it is hard to pick up much more than some mild hops presence. Flavor is very nice, though and is a wonderful recovery from the mild nose. Big pine and citrus hops presence with enough caramel malt to keep it from coming across as watery or pure hops. At times the alcohol is too much and comes through as a little astringent, at other times it blends nicely. It’s a little rough around some of the edges, but better than most.

clear amber. minty hops, pine in the nose. big hop flavor, lots of herbality, caramel up front to balance it out. surprisingly good, hides the 8% v. well.
