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.

The Hop Mountain pours a cloudy bronze orange with a beige head that lasts for a brief moment. The aroma is floral, pine and caramel. The flavor is pine and floral with caramel. Overall this is a decent beer, but nothing special.

This beer has a very intense smell, however the flavour is a bit of a muddle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Deep copper with small off white head. Aroma of floral and spicy hops. Medium body with hop bitterness upfront, some caramel malt and a bitter finish.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a thin to medium off white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, quite malty, caramel. Flavour has roasted malts, caramel, spice, minted lamb chops, mild bitterness and mild hoppy finish. Not masses of wow factor but certainly drank it happily.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
355ml bottle from Utobeer. This is all about rich citrus and fruity hops, without getting too sweet. Tastes nice in the Spring sun, although could be fresher.

3/1/14. With Michelle. Single bottle. At my parents' place. Nicely hopped for a pale ale without crossing into IPA territory. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Jakes Place. Amber with off white head. Aroma of pine, dried fruits, raisins and dates. Taste is similar, dried fruits, raisins, prunes with pine and a touch of citrus. Balanced and quite dry. Nice although I’d say more of an amber ale

Chalsk (1085) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, heavy caramel, and earthiness. Dry sweet caramel taste with minor hop hit and grapefruit in backend. Eh.

kramer (5100) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a frothy one finger beige head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is more sweet crystal malt than hops, but there’s some light citrusy notes. The flavor is just way too over the top crystal malt heavy for my tastes, it really takes away from the hops. Some light bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not so good, ban crystal malt from hoppy beers!

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
On tap at old dom’s in the Dulles airport. Reviewed via iPhone. A: copper and hazy. No head. Spotty lacing. Almost has a wheat appearance. Low marks. S: nice and hoppy. Centennials and cascades I would guess. Above average. Hint of metallics. T: nice and bitter up front. Good citrus character. Nice malts are a hint sour - reminds me of mirror pond at times. Again, a hint of metal. M: medium body with lively carb. Dry finish. O: decent pale. Would drink again. Would not seek out. Serving type: on-tap 06-11-2011
