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.

jgb9348 (4943) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Hazy copper coloured body with a nice thickish off-white coloured head about two centimetres tall. Aroma of fresh resiny and piney hops, a lot of alcohol, a good malt scent and a bit of niagara (non-vinifera) grapes noticeable at the tail end. Medium-bodied; Chewy hop flavour at first with a great sweet grapey and pear flavour that is super strong - you can’t miss it. Aftertaste shows a nice malt backbone with a strong alcohol flavour all taken over by a great and smooth hop bitterness that really shows resiny and piney bites. Overall, a nice and sweet, but still equally as hoppy, beer - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 10-July-2012.

Pours an amber with a thick lacy head. Malt forward in aroma, hops present but not shining. Taste follows, not a bad beer but not a great ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scarletfire65 (1044) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours a deep golden. Large rocky head, short retention, ample lacing left behind. Aroma of caramelized orange, grapefruit, honey. Medium bodied. Sweet underneath, with very impressive fresh citrus fruit flavors. Slight saltiness on the moderately bitter finish. Not quite a hop explosion, but balanced and drinkable.

blipp (6547) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle. Gold with an off white head. Flowery hops, with lighter piney notes on a moderately sweet malty base. Not quite as hoppy as it could be, but still a solid IPA.

Balanced drinkable IPA. Rich copper colour with creamy head. Easy drinking, almost a session beer!

A little underwhelming.. esp. with the label cautioning a "hop explosion". Still, a nice well balanced beer. Not west coast in the fact it delivers quite a bit of malt flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2319) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Bottle at lucky lab. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is all grapefruit. Taste is pretty damn bitter with a lot of grapefruit sweetness. Overall awesome local brew.

Dorwart (2411) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Nice strong 2 inch+ head of fine off-white bubbles. Lots of citrus in the aroma with oranges, mild malts and some cereal grains. Color is a clear light golden orange. Hmmm, bit of roasted malts, orange peel and some hoppy bitterness. Not a very sharp bitterness at all. Kind of a mild sneak up on you dry bitterness that fades quickly. Rather bland flavor. A bit oily on the palate with some lingering grapefruit pith. An ok IPA.

gyllenbock (5306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at Oliver Twist, May 2012. Clear light amber with a small white head. A lot of grape and hops in this one. Not bad but a bit one-dimensional. Bitter finish.

Ganska stor humleton. Mycket besk och aningen entonig. Fin fyllighet. Helt ok men saknar frukten. Ganska rå. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
