COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppiest Brew Works beer ever? The smell of grapefruit, a sweet malt flavor, and oh by the way, lots of hop bitterness. Brewed in the tradition of West Coast ales, we have put loads of malt and hops in our kettle to come up with this sensational ale. Brewed with pale, and crystal malts, hopped with Tomahawks for Yakima Valley, WA. This beer styled has made many a microbrewery famous and this one is sure to please all those who love hops.

on tap-pours a light tan head with some lacing and copper color. Aroma is plenty of both medium hops-citrus and medium malt. Taste is plenty of both medium hops-citrus-pine-mild bitterness and medium malt-some sweetness-caramel. The bitterness at the finish increases through the beer. Good carbonation.

On tap. This is why i didn’t like IPAs before i started really getting into beer. Poured a cloudy copper color with good head. Aroma was of floral hops and citrus. Flavor missed the boat. Metallic bitter, no balance. Just a bad ipa.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Newtown Brewfest. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a decent off white head. Aroma is light citrus, floral hops, some orange peel and a bit metallic and hardly any malt. Ligth crystal malt backbone in the flavor but mostly just a dull slight citrus hop and some metallic hints and a wierd off bitter finish. Meh.

MadIndian (2306) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Sampled with Stegosaurus and beerded_one at Newtown brewfest. Pours amber with nice head. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy. The taste is over hop. They could have blended the hoppyness a little better.

On tap at the BBW Brew Pub. Poured a deeper orange/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of overall citrus (grapefruit), pine with a splash of caramel. Tastes of the same. Very light alcohol in the finish. Nicely bitter. Light lacing left on the glass. Menu had the Alc Content @ 7.2%,

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Caramel colored pour with off-white head. Big fruity hop aroma, that tastes on the piney side, with a fair amount of balancing malts. A very drinkable, very solid IPA with a notable complexity. My menu stated that this one is 7.2% ABV.

Hoppy but a bit shallow for my taste. But me being a hophead, it is better than most beers floating around out there.
