COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop lovers, this is the beer for you. Four different styles of American hops are artfully staggered against a sturdy malt backbone to create a unique, drinkable and balanced Pale Ale.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 On tap at World Beer Festival in Cleveland. Good pale ale overall, hoppy, easy to drink, good.

Eructoblaster (3336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
On tap at Old Dominion (Dulles Airport, VA). Light amber body with a decent off-white creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with nutty hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with woody and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Aroma is subdued; mostly malty biscuit, some hop but nothing solid. Taste is malty, where are the hops?! It’s a very American pale ale, a hop mountain it is not. Just a silly name choice. It’s perfectly pleasant but nothing more than average.

hfmejias (974) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 Oz. Bottle. Poured a nice hazy amber color with little white head. Aroma of caramel, malts and hops. taste is of sweet malts and caramel with a light hoppy and bitter finish. Quite nice, quite drinkable beer, however I would have expected more out of a "hop mountain".

Dogbrick (9346) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Sample at 1808 American Bistro. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and caramel malt. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, roast malt and caramel. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Dacrza (617) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Date: 12 January 2013... Glassware: Yuengling pint... Occasion: Playoff football--no Browns, but oh well... Appearance: nice burnt orange, vibrantly bubbling body supporting a creamy single-finger, off-white head... Aroma: soft, buttery nut scent; almost popcorn (corny?) overtones; hops are so subtle they are not noticeable... Taste: almost balanced, with a slightly off-centered malt profile; not nutty, buttery, or descript... Palate: medium-bodied, crunchy at the teeth; foamy... Overall: Not really a "mountain" of hops, and unlike the label’s boast, not really a declaration of hop love either...serviceable, but not neearly as appealing as other pales...

Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. A murky bronze pour with a small off white head. Sweet malt driven nose with some fragrant hop lurking. A similar yarn unfolded flavour-wise with some fruity notes alongside rather muted bitterness. Considering the name I was expecting a bit more hop presence. A drinkable if unspectacular offering.

Bottle. Cloudy brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is hopped with maltyness, and the flavour is bitter and well hopped. Overall a pleasant well hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle: pours a clear copper bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some grapefruity hop notes. Starts with decent fullness and fine carbonation with a toasted malty sweetness that quickly gives way to a citrusy grassy hop bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty clean and drinkable, but could benefit from a more assertive hop presence.

bottle beersofeurope. sweet caramel hop note, pours a hazy red. Some faint metallic note, with sharp bitterness on the tongue. Semi sweet lingering finish. Solid enough.
