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.

Naka (717) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a dark slightly hazy brown with very little head. Aroma has a little roasty note. A little molasses and very little hops. Flavor is kind of roasty and with a really strong citrus rind bitter. There is a little butterscotch and a slightly warming alcohol. Body is medium heavy, but there is something missing.

unclemike (2613) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2010
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

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle:   Deep amberish, slight haze, thin sudsy white head, so-so lacing.   Sweet citrus rind like nose, smidgen of tea leaves and hops.   Semi-sweet to start, citrusy, doesn’t show up with much bitterness.   Malt background is moderate.   This beer doesn’t seem like 8%.   On the sweeter side, without being cloying.   Hop & citrus aspect towards the end fall off a bit.   Maltier than your standard IPA, yet not as bitter.   Also a touch sweeter than most.   Doesn’t feel as if its an IIPA, more like 1˝ IPA.   Finish is clean.   Decent, but not one to write home about.   Thanks to Dan for the bottle!

Dorwart (2457) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Thin off-white head of varying sized bubbles with minimal carbonation. Roasty aroma with some buttered bread and caramel malts. Very little hops presence for an IIPA. Color is a dark mahagony red. Sweet and malty flavor with a little bit of hops presence showng up now. A bit of harsh bitterness with more caramel and some herbal flavors. Light alcohol presence which you feel more than taste. Finishes dry and bitter with a bit of pasty malts.

JStax (3975) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2010
On tap into a sampler glass. Appearance is a hazy amber with a long lasting beige head. Aroma is mostly hops and a little bit of malt. Taste follows suit. Hops aren’t nearly as upfront as would be expected from a DIPA. Overall very good.

vtafro (5087) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with some tan lacing of head. Light citrus hops with malt influence light oxidation, and warming. Freshness?

Really nice offering here...deep dark copper color, could ahve used a nice glass but the flavor, hop balance, body made up for it. Really fine brew.
