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!

Christmas present deuce, release #52. Pour looked exactly like apple cider from a mill, hazy, dense light brown. Very thick eggshell head that was huge and settled to a quarter inch. Scent is subtle but what can be discerned is juicy citrus hops. Thick, frothy mouthfeel. Pretty evenly blended, a little more bitter than sweet. Bitter pine hop taste, not too strong though. Finish is more bitter an pretty dry. Good beer but nothing outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. A slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head. A fruity hop aroma, a little too sweet, with a stiff malty and bitter finish.

Recommended. Pours a hazy orange and gold in the body with a puffy inch of white head. Moderate lacing on the glass. The nose is pine and resin laden with heavy grainy malts, light caramel. Taste is grassy and green hop bitterness with a heavy grapefruit and moderate resin presence. Light earthy, grainy malt makes a show. Medium body with medium carbonation. An above average DIPA!

650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grass with some grains and a bit of funk. Taste is a pink grapefruit and grass hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light grain mouth feel. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty fine DIPA that is quite balanced and tastes good. Recommended.

Draft. Golden body with a frothy white head, lasting. Aroma of citrus, resin, grapefruit, pineapple. Note or orange peel. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/soft bubbly texture, lively carbonation. A bit one dimensional, but easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel.

Nitro on tap at Hopcat Detroit. Aroma is hops, sweet fruit and pine. Appearance is hazy golden, white head. Taste is great, a nice balance of sweet fruit and bitter pine. The nitro may enhance this. Mouthfeel is great, thick nitro pours are wonderful. Overall, an impressive brew.

Pours a clear gold with plenty of foam that lasts and does well with the lacing. The smell is is a mix of caramel malt and grain with the hops well represent by pine. Even Steven on the first few sips between the malt and hops but I notice the alcohol kick more. The malt is sweet but also has a grain like character to it. The hops have pine but to me, it has more of an aspirin like bitterness. Close to full bodied with medium carbonation. This is decent but a rather difficult beer to drink not only taste wise but because the alcohol is intrusive. I am not likely to revisit.
