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!

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.

(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 (2015) - 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.

DialSquare (3354) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bomber from Andersons in Sylvania. Orange pour with a frothy, sturdy inch or so off-white head. Aroma is soft grassy and herbal hops. Tastes are toasty malts, sweet caramel and pine hops - floral and juicy orange. On the maltier side. Well done.

RedSox2004 (1426) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a hazy orange amber with a thick ceamy off white head, nice retention and terrific lace. Aromas of caramel and pine, with mint, citrus, and grass in the background. Flavors are similar, with emphasis on the caramel malt seetness and and resinous pine. Medium body and carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel and a pleasant piney hops finish.

Ringnes (3) - Elk River, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2012 does not count
Pours a deep golden hue with a two inch head that holds the glass quite well. The taste is well balanced and provides a nice mix of hops and malt. This is easily quaffable and very refreshing. I believe batch #37 is the best one yet.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold/yellow pour, white head. Citrus and pine hops on the aroma and taste.
