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.

cheap (3972) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Heh, heh. My bottle says caution hop explosion. Looks like a darker hefe. Thin viscous creamy head. Big giant dull volatile hop aroma. Sickening, mouth coating, cloying sweet hop bitter finish bullshit. Another slug? Ditto. THAR, you have it. If you are a refined lager lover, this soupy slugger may trigger your girlie gag mechanism. Throw caution aside, this stuff must be bigger than 8%. Yes terribly and rudely on style for a double IPA.

b3shine (5198) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy orange with off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; bitter hops with a sweet, malty backbone. Tastes like it smells, only not quite as bitter. Solid on the palate. A decent IPA.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 17, 2013
On tap at Varga in Philly. Pours a dark amber color with a one finger beige head that slowly dissolves, leaving some spotty lacing. Slightly bitter in the nose with some citrus notes and a slight sweet breadiness. Taste has a smooth bitterness with oily resinous and piney hops. Thick malt backbone with toasted bread and caramel sweetness and a slight warmth in the drying finish. Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue.

callmemickey (2567) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Hazy golden-orange body, medium white head, decent lacing. Nose is orange zest, some Brady pale malts. Flavor displays a ore muted hop presence. Medium to light bodied, mild carbonation, soft finish. This ain’t no ’hop explosion.’

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow orange with a thick soapy head. Aroma is sour and a bit medicinal. Highly carbonated. Sweet and spicy. Unique. Finishes with a syrup honey type sweetness. I could do a sixer due to the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden honey color with medium head. Aroma of citrus hop and hay. Medium heavy bitter. Above average carbonation. Biscuit notes with citrus hop taste. Close to a hop bomb.
