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.

Draft @ Allentown Brew Works, pre-BCTC beerventure, courtesy of mj. Pours a clear, bright orange color; white head with decent lacing. Dense, nicely resiny citrus hop character in the aroma, but with some sort of sweet, grainy and herbal note. Medium-to-full, chewy hop mouthfeel: dense candy sugar and resiny citrus / fruit hop character; good hops, but sort of an odd, doughy off-note in there as well. Lengthy, citrus hop and doughy finish.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Draft at the Allentown brewery. Clear amber orange color, standard CO2 head, medium sized bubbles, no foam. Nose of earthy cannibus and grapefruit hops, some patchouli, a slight BO sweaty note and some pepper in the nose. Bitter wood sap and dry pine tasted along with more of the soapy patchouli hop flavors. Biting and astringent, good but isn’t exactly an upper echelon IPA. The perfume-chemical notes, which are very mild and just barely noticeable, probably need to be cleaned up.

Tap. Cloudy copperish color. Aroma was overpowering of hops. Next to no balance. Very light and the flavor went away as soon as it was swallowed. Could have been better hopped.

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.

Beerdedone (2603) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The Mad Indian. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet, citrus, and finishes bitter.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - 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.

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.
