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 a hazy golden orange from the bottle with a fluffy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, grapefruit, earthy, floral and funky grass. Taste is less intense, but still really hoppy, with good pale malt back. Pretty good balance, a little boozy, but really enjoyable.

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.

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.

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 (1666) - 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 (1520) - 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.

On tap at epic. Golden otamge pour with a snow white head. Good clarity. Highlights say ahop heads delight. Aroma is alittle lacking. Still, has light citrus nose. Smooth beer, some bitterness. Orange, and marmalade flavors.

DrunkSanta410 (319) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Lacy. Aroma is nice and hoppy, hints of pine, resin and a bit of earthiness. Taste is great, nice pine hops and a great malt backbone. Solid bitterness. A bit of sweetness, caramel. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Great beer.
