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!

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle, Release #37, 8.3% ABV. Hazy orange with a bright, frothy white head. Solid hop aroma (citrus, tangerine, pine) with a bit of caramel, and as it warms, grain. Flavor actually has a bit more upfront malt, but then comes a quick and bracing bitterness, which lingers in the finish. The bitterness loses its potency over the course of the first glass. Caramel, tangerine, and pine come to dominate. Batch 37 is really enjoyable, and I would love to be able to try some of the others with changes to the hop bill.

Pours a dark orange with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, floral and herbal hops, citrus, resin, and slight cereal. Flavor matches well and is really enjoyable. Great beer.

On tap at Congregation Ale House. Really nice hoppy nose, herbal and floral. Sweet pale malt undertone. Apricot, pine, grapefruit. Warm orange-amber hazy with thin off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation, silky. Starts medium sweet with tons of fresh hop flavor; pine resin. Huge bitter finish with resinous bitter after. Nice IPA.

bytemesis (3830) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Tap. Pours light amber mostly clear with a small head that has good staying power with some lacing. Aroma is of citrus/grapefruit with some floral scents. Taste is slightly sweet, piney and floral. Extremely bitter from start to finish, including a very bitter aftertaste. Overall a little watery in the mouth.

Dangerously easy to drink. Toffee and caramel malt married to pinecone hops with citrus bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (7790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a murky medium-to-dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma of creamsicle, spicy and piney hops, some candied sugar and grainy malts. Flavour of piney hops, dry citrus peel (without the tang), oranges, creamsicle, with a fair amount of sweetness. Finishes grapefruity and bitter. Quite a sticky body for an IPA. Cloyingly sweet and very bitter in a bad way.

Marheb (2641) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
(Pompe nitro au Cloverleaf): Sapiné, fruits exotiques, agrumes avec une structure malté très solide. L’amertume n’est pas un facteur pour une IIPA mais la présence en bouche et les saveurs compensent parfaitement. Très juteux.

cards04 (2017) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Pours like peach nector...thick and dull orange with creamy head. Very nice. Thick and silky looking. Smells like fresh peaches and apricots and oranges. Honey and citrus and sweet apricots on the palate. Strong and lingering bitter grapefruit finish. Sticky and full and creamy on thje palate. This IPA is completely delicious and awesome.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2012
22oz bottle from Oak Tree Discount Wine and Liquors in South Plainfield, NJ. Pours a cloudy, dull orange, gold tinted body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of sticky lacing throughout. Aroma is fruity and sweet hops with big tangerines, oranges, and melon fruits with lots of florals and a few pines. Some caramel malts offering a nice balance with a light sweetness and a touch of bread. Flavor is similar. Lots of fruity, fairly sweet floral hops with plenty of tangerines, oranges, melon fruits, and light pines. Nice malt backing with a light caramel sweetness and a light bread as this finishes fruity with lots of sweet floral hops and a moderate, piney and earthy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice DIPA. Lots of sweet, fruity hops with a firm enough bitterness to keep things balanced. Nice malt backing with a light caramel and bready sweetness that allows the sweet, fruity hops to shine. Good beer.
