Named after our three tanks that were tragically lost to the depths of the Pacific, Hop Overboard is a pale ale with West Coast beginnings. Overflowing with hop flavor and aroma, this pale lives up to its name and then some. Munich and caramel malt sweetness counterbalances the hop excess to a remarkable degree of harmony. Not overly bitter, this pale has everything you want ... just don’t go too overboard. IBU: 45.6

Served on Tap @ Brass Tap (Round Rock, TX) Smooth, great hop kick at the top, followed by malts and spice (from the alcohol)some citrus, then ending with more pine-like spices...a surprisingly dry finish...The carbonation is good There’s a good fullness. Present, but not ’too’ much fruity/sweet flavors...The final pine/spice balances the beer out wonderfully, nice hop finish...This one good, ....As I’ve recently moved from Seattle, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with TX offerings......Chasin’ Cheers :~)

Slightly hazy copper with a very thin white head. Faint aroma with some herbal floral hops. Flavor of the same. Herbal bitterness and herbal, dry flavors. A bit of old world earthy hop tones. Meh.

Citrus hops mostly, some orange peel, and sweetness to go along with the caramel hops. Golden amber body, the head was thin and short lived, leaving streaky lace. The flavor was about the same as the aroma, more of a traditional pale ale in that the malts are more assertive than the hops. O.K. flavors, not aggressive in any sense, an easy sipper.

On tap at Craft Pride. Pours a cloudy orange with thick frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine, and floral hop. Thin mouth, tropical fruit, nice hop bite, light bitterness, very good.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent copper/lightened amber color, 2 mm foamy head formed a solid ring about the vessel and tried it’s best to lace. Aroma of resin, citrus, and some caramel. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is rather lackluster and for once a lack of sweetness hurts, middle has a fine yet dulled hop crescent, finish is drying and bittering. Not bad, but nothing I would go for jail for.

Tap. The look is golden orange in color, beige colored head, and clear. The smell is fruity, nice, pine, hops. Much the same in taste. Clean, bitter, florals. Better than expected.

Poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of bread, orange zest and light pink grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange, grapefruit and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering bitter citrus finish.

Tap at Second. Pours a fairly clear light orange color with a tall white head. Aroma is hoppy, sweet and fruity. Flavor is certainly hoppy, dry, bitter with almost a passion fruit finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smell is fruity and bright. Taste is hoppy and citrus and fruity and piny. Taste is a bit thin but pretty hoppy. Not bad. Wife thinks it tastes like hairspray.
