Hops have taken over the world. Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 Draft: Very good good DIPA. The aroma wasn’t as strong for me but still quite nice. Very drinkable especially considering the alcohol content and the amount of hop flavour in the beer. (3.8) Second time around...Wow (fresher bottle).

From Growler (TRU BRU - Melbourne’s growler station). Seems very fresh. Better than I remember this in bottle last year. Incredibly tasty DIPA that I recommend to any one.

Fin (8562) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge, Birmingham, Friday 19th June 2015 consumed at home Sunday 21st June (Summer Solstice) Warm gold in colour with a filmy white head, slight haze otherwise pretty good clarity. A tropical edge to the nose, also tropical tasting with a little pineapple and mango in the mouth, not overly tropical mind, a jolly good beer but easily bettered in my opinion. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

KyleCameron (33) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 26, 2015
floral nose, less dankness than an american DIPA, but still has a dash of it. Body is almost non-existent, apparently all pilsner malt in this, it shows only hops. The hops build the flavour, not very resinous on the palate. Reasonably juicy hop character. It has soooo much going on in the palate, from citrus to pine to turkish delight and floral fruitiness. The beer is like a double epic armageddon in some ways. Finish is short. This beer is satisfying my hoppy desires. A little more body and bitterness would make this beer perfect to me.

johndoughty (4526) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Small head with quite complex fruitiness but what surprised me was the lack of hop domination especially considering its name. Still a pleasant beer which is quite subtle especially considering its strength.

Setroc (12) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2015
Pours dark golden mostly clear with white head. The aroma is mostly of the citrus hops, and this carries through to the flavour which is nicely balanced between the orange, lemon, grapefruit hops and the sweet malt body. Very nice.

Sask89 (499) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Pours a mostly clear Amber colour with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has a slight caramel scent to it, floral hops, and citrus notes. Taste is a little sweet up front but fairly bitter. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall really enjoyable brew.
