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!

Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a off-white, mixed-grain, sticky and lacy head. Nose is lime, grapefruit, rose, and rosemary; quite pungent. Quite bitter on the front of the tongue, wlth lime and orange notes; there’s enough caramel malt to hold a balanced line, though, and the mouthfeel is quite soft and alluring. A little hot in the back of the throat. Finish is astringent and bitter, with a clean bite. A nice blend of aggressive and balanced.

nielsedd (79) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2014
On tap at Mr. Brews in Verona, WI, on nitro. I find the nitro makes beer almost too smooth and ruins the aroma somehow, but this is still good. Hazy copper, nice white head, floral aroma, yadda yadda yadda.

luttonm (2962) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2014
22oz in Seattle as ’Release 98, 8.7%’ so not the freshest I’m afraid, will try this again. Slight darker orange with nice creamy foam. Deep citrus hops, but a very strong malt backbone as well. Quite sweet too. I imagine this is better fresh.

Evolutionary (370) - Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Color is way pale. Nose is hop. Nitro isn't the best for this as it smooths it out too much. Sweet but good balance. Not amazing but wouldn't throw out. Better than average.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bomber. Pours a slightly veiled amber-golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, lemon, caramel, brown sugar, grass. Flavor is orange, grapefruit, caramel, bubble gum. Finish is grapefruit, resin, pine, bitter. Lingering grapefruit and pine tree. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation.

Casked in Las Vegas. Poured a reddish amber. Nice fresh hopped aroma. Well carbonated for a cask ale. Malt and piney citrus. Good.

Block (1676) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
This beer was good. I liked it. Strong hop flavor in the aroma through the finish. Sweet with enough malts to cover the alcohol.

Bottle @ home, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is big hops, big caramel, some candy like notes. Flavour is about the same, not as bitter but very hoppy. Nice one.
