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.

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of hops, pine, tropical fruit, and light grapefruit. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, light resin, slight tropical fruit, light toasted caramel, and lemon. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium bitter, hop, pine, and resin finish is lightly dry. 10.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

r464 (1918) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Hoppy, amber, and fairly strong. Not bad, with hints of fruit and a balanced flavor for an IPA. The strength is there, but doesn’t knock you on your butt.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Firkin at jose pistola’s served a bit too warm. Hazy orange, thin bubbly head. Fruity orange and grapefruit aroma. Great hop bitterness and a slight sweet vanilla to balance. Great dry finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Draft at Capones. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet and malty body (hardly the explosion) with some light pine like accents. Malty with paper (oxidation notes...) hardly hoppy some light earth tones but that might be more dryness from the crystal malt. I dunno what to say, this is ON DRAFT, WTF! Update, looks like i am not alone).

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap at Capones. I took a sip of this and immediately thought WTF? I don’t know if this batch was off or what but this beer was just not right. Red brown pour with a greyish tan head. Some clove and spice on the nose. Slight citrus flavor. Virtually no hops.

Scouser (237) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2010
aroma was great vanilla, rose hip, cinnamon, really nice! Amber/honey with a little white lacing. Tastes vanilla, spices with a bitter citrus punch on the back end a great beer!

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Draft at Capone’s. Surprise, surprise, surprise. A decent hop-monster brewed right in the backwaters of PA. Clear amber/orange with a decent head. Aroma of grapefruit and other more exotic tropical fruit. Taste was in your face hop brashness without a lot of syrupy sweetness that plagues some IIPA’s. The high ABV is barely noticible. End is bitter and fairly clean and my growler is going to prove invaluable for the next few nights.
