COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopulent IPA is a big beer with lots of complex malt flavor and excessive hops. This beer will have changes to the grain bill and seasonal hop changes. The character of Hopulent IPA is over the top, too much of everything—a real HOP HEADS DELIGHT!

Salmoniform (831) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is melon, papaya, mango, tangerine, grapefruit. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a nice hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this beer has good elements but could benefit from a more crisp carbonation volume.

ColovianTrader (294) - - AUG 30, 2014
Sweet, citrus aroma. Flavors of crisp fruit, especially orange and apple, caramel, lightly toasted grains, resin and pine. Notes of citrus peel and faint peppercorns. Bitter hops balance the sweetness. Very well crafted beer.

Vaiz (3394) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine Summerlin. Hazy yellow pour with some yeasties. Aroma of citrus hops, slightly floral, quite fruity, with some spices and a hint of sweaty socks. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy and fruity. Some nectarine and plum in the body. Thick and a bit rough but quite nice.

Cavie (3804) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Nitro tap at Bearded Lady. Pours a clear light orange color with a creamy, foamy head. Aroma is fresh hops, drippy resin, sap, pine needles and more hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is lightly hopped, some citrus grapefruit notes but also has some dusty elements. Creamy from the nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daleharshman (919) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bomber purchased at the Escondido BevMo ($6.39). Pours a hazy sunset-orange hue with two fingers of off-white foam. AROMA of caramel, pine/spruce, wet grains, and some mellowed-out citrus. FLAVOR of sweet-ish caramel malts, pine sap, dank citrus, with some noticeable booze. Malty-sweet but finishes with moderate bitterness and a bit more of the aforementioned alcohol. I may have let this sit too long before drinking as it is still hoppy but starting to get some barleywine-like notes as well. An okay malt-forward DIPA. (438, 896)

brigg (517) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2014
(On tap/nitro at Penn Commons) Very cloudy orange body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of orange, pine hops--not very strong aroma. Flavor is resiny, pine, orange; moderate alcohol. Medium to thick body, velvety; creamy nitro head.

On tap at Beer Exchange. Pours an opaque orange with a thin, white head that laces. Aroma has smooth notes of orange citrus, resin, and pine. Taste is bitter. Big resin, citrus, and pine with a big resin finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Resiny texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a big, resiny IIPA.
