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!

ben4321 (5479) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/20/12

Aroma: Juicy (orange, peach, and other citrus fruits) aroma, with some grass, earth, and spice
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy orange color, with a small fizzy white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, with lots of juicy citrus, and a light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with a fairly smooth and creamy feel, and a clean (lightly dry) finish
Overall Impression: This one was very solid for a sweet DIPA. It felt a little lacking on the hop-bitterness side of the style in my opinion, but I still enjoyed it. The bitterness isn’t completely missing by any means, it comes through it the lightly dry finish, but it is quite a bit less bitter then many other beers in this style. If you are a fan of balanced (leaning sweet) DIPAs with a lot of citrus, this is definitely a good beer for you.

Got this one on a recommendation at Total Wine. Good taste and balance. The bitterness was not overly astringent...which I like. The nose lacking the nice floral aroma that I want in a top IPA. I would definitely buy this again but not go out off my way looking for it.
