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!

Taken from old notes. Release 23, 8.6%. Cloudy, orange pour with a nose of bright citrus. Taste is sharp bitter hops with just enough malt to sweeten it to balance. Long, bitter aftertaste.

22oz bomber poured into a Karmaliet tulip glass. Pours cloudy orange with a 2 inch head that leaves delicate rings of lacing. Aroma is citrus(mainly grapefruit), pine, and some sweetness coming from the malt. Taste is some bitterness from the hops, caramel, with a slightly clean finish. No alcohol burn which was surprising considering it’s 8.1%.

DrSilverworm (8705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2012
22oz bottle - release #40, 8.2% abv. Good, thin off-white head, leaving good lace. Mostly hazy amber / orange color. Good, lighter crisp and smooth carbonation, dry finish. Nice stronger bitter taste, subtle bite to it. Resinous hops, spices, some orange. Decent, sharp DIPA.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Release #42, 8.1% ABV. 4.0 A: Deeply hazed orange brown color. Three fingers of white, creamy/frothy head. Retention is very good and plenty of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Mix of herbal, piney, and citrusy hops. Pine, grapefruit, and orange are the strongest components. Light caramel with bready malts and yeastiness. 4.0 T: Again, herbal, piney, and citrusy hop taste. Pine, grapefruit, and orange again dominate. There is also a light sugariness. Caramel, bready malts, and moderate bitterness and yeastiness. The sugariness really brings everything together. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy. A little too chewy for my tastes though, which is often the case with unfiltered IPAs. 4.0 D: Epic keeps putting out some great brews. That’s all I have to say.

Pours light amber with a creamy light beige head. Aromas of fruit, resin and light caramel. Full bodied. Flavor is resin, fruit, light citrus, and a firm caramel backbone. In the end some grapefruit rind definitely is left.

thirdeye11 (5817) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
(22oz bottle) cloudy and yeasty, deep gold and lasting creamy head. Nose of honey, pine, very yeasty, but funky. Taste of honey, light pine, bit of oily body, awesome.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Serving: Draft. Hazy amber pour. Citrus and herbal hop nose. Great hoppy bitterness right out of the gate. Citrus with light tropicals and a nice malt backbone on the tongue. Lasting bitter finish. Well done.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Draft. Reminds me of a palate wrecker but light on the hops. Cloudy orange color. Decent lacing. No head. Long lasting bitterness. Nice IPA with some malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pine and citrus aroma. Big pine taste with grapefruit bitterness lasts a long time.

bubbleflubber (2053) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a spotty eggshell head that reduces to trace lacing. Not sure which batch this is, but it’s on tap at Dirty Jack’s in Asheville as a guest rotation. The nose has tons of orange candies and grapefruit, floral notes and pine needles. Wonderfully balances citrus, malt and hop contingencies. In fact, in the mouth, it does a gorgeous job at integrating everything here. Grapefruit, just enough malt to keep a drier IIPA interesting, and a nice dry-hop lingering peppered finish, with just a touch of alcohol to close the pull. A little oily on the palate, this is substantial and a great brew. Reminiscent of a standard IPA more than a double, honestly. But it’s a great offering, so it really doesn’t matter.
