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!

On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids. clear dark gold with a foamy white head. Nice aroma of bready toffee with lemon zest and tangy grapefruit hops. Delicious hoppy flavor of grapefruit, citrus zest, and a touch of herbalness combine into a staunch bitterness. It’s only balanced by a fair bit of biscuity bready toffee tone, but oddly it ends kinda on a soapy tone...though I’m pretty sure that’s just the hop combo. It’s a really fine and complex hoppiness, it just ends up being too bitter and not balanced enough.

Bomber from Whole Foods Portland - Release #29 - 8.9% ABV - OK the hops are out front, granted, but the alcohol is even further out front, which steals taste from the hops. Somewhat "gamey" aftertaste. Good, but not great.

LilBeerDoctor (3414) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle, release #29. Pours a rather cloudy dirty orange with white head and plenty of sediment from the bottle, although the beer is not that old (3 months). Aroma of aged caramel malt and tropical fruits. Flavor is fruity up front with a sharp hop bitterness and finally sweetness (malty) in the finish. Perhaps less hoppy than when initially released, but you still get lots of the floral and fruity hops. Nice IPA! 74/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Bottled pours cloudy amber orange with a large offwhite head. Aromas of spruce and floral hops. Flavors are similar with caramel. Lasting crisp hoppiness on the tongue. Decent ipa well balanced.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Hazy Orange pour. Minimal head. A very nice hoppy, floral, bitter aroma with a bit of malt. Very nice flavor, with caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. Hop forward but reasonably balanced with malt. Fullish body and a dry finish.

bookman10 (622) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Pretty good IPA. Pours a nice golden, copper yellow with good-sized head. Strong piney hop aroma. Flavor is hops and citrus and pine. Fairly bitter finish. Pretty strong alcohol content--this one sneaks up on you a bit. Not bad at all.
