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.

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.

Chalsk (1065) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2012
On the (my) Eleventh Day of Christmas the beer gods gave me... An earthy IPA. Pours an amber orange color with thick white foam head. Aroma of muted caramel and grapefruit with heavy earthiness. Sweet citrus taste with a thin but direct hop hit. Lots of earthiness and leathery texture. Perhaps a bit more malt would round it out better. Solid. Hop lovers will enjoy.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle at home, thanks to an IP trade with Kurt, 20/12/12. Opaque mid amber/orange with a thin off white head that retains at the edge and as a film. Nose is caramel malt, floral hops, light pine, touch of grass and sugars. Taste comprises caramel malt, orange, touch of grpaefruit, citrus notes, hops, pine. Medium bodied, soft carb, good feel, hop bitterness in the finish. A decent well balanced IPA.

Bottle. Orange pour with a bit of beige head. Fresh hop flavors have almost entirely dropped out, some spice and herbal tones remain.

EithCubes (4939) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle last night, nose quite hoppy, some citrus and lychee, caramel and vanilla pudding, lightly spicy dough but faintly so. Deep and hazy amber with a rocky off-white head. Watery body, taste lightly sweet, light-medium bitterness, dries out significantly as the resins take over. Alcohol reasonably well hidden, some grapefruit rind. Like the hops here but reminds more of juice than beer.

TEJA (1300) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2012
Draught at OT, Sweden. Short thinn off white head. Opaque golden color. Pungent hop aroma. Hoppy taste with a little bite but balanced by malty sweetness. Semi lasting bitterness. Unfortunantly the aroma lowers the whole impression.
