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.

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.

Theydon_Bois (9729) - 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.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2006
On tap at the BBW Brew Pub. Poured a deeper orange/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of overall citrus (grapefruit), pine with a splash of caramel. Tastes of the same. Very light alcohol in the finish. Nicely bitter. Light lacing left on the glass. Menu had the Alc Content @ 7.2%,

Drake (8808) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Oak Tree Liquors. Pours a pale amber color with a thin foamy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of huge, fresh citrus and the faintest bit of caramel. The taste is bitter citrus hops, almost pithy. Grapefruit and lemon. Faint caramel malts. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation, lingering bitterness. I’m not sure how a beer can be one-note but also interesting but this one does it.

jtclockwork (8783) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with uneven off white head. Nose/taste of dry hops, caramel, pine wood, resin and dried fruit. Some metallic bitterness in the finish. Medium body.

3fourths (8219) - 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.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Caramel colored pour with off-white head. Big fruity hop aroma, that tastes on the piney side, with a fair amount of balancing malts. A very drinkable, very solid IPA with a notable complexity. My menu stated that this one is 7.2% ABV.

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Bottled. Poured hazy medium orange with a tall, creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up spicy pine and grapefruit over soft biscuity malts.. hops seemed a little muted, but the balance was right on. The flavor found a lot more of the biscuity malts at the core, along with a kiss of honey.. moderate earth and grapefruit bitterness around.. more bitter and spicy on the finish.. things seemed a little broken down, but it was still aiight. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. I’d love to try this super-fresh sometime.

lusikka (6449) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Draught @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Rated @ 23.5.2011.
Pours a clear copper colour with a small, white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and some mild spices. Flavour of sweet tropical fruits, citrus, hops and some malts. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a fruity, bitter finish. Tasty.
