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.

bubbleflubber (1786) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours clear amber into the glass, with a minimal head that leaves trace lacing. The nose is of musty citrus. Flavors are of caramel and grapefruit with a finish of nice hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is round and lively on the palate, with plenty of substance, complexity and a full body. Nice IPA here.

Really enjoyed this beer. Hoppy and bitter. Not super-permeating, but good stuff.

60minuteman (698) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2014
Hoppy aroma with some citrus notes, metal, wheat, grapefruit and something else that brings out the alcohol. Flavor is the same. Bitter. Very bitter. Well balanced IPA. The smell has some kind of liquor feel/very potent. Just don’t know.

Voodoo (294) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours a darker golden color with a green tinge and white head. Aroma is simply citrus. Taste is bitterness up front, citrus, slight grassiness, biscuitty maltiness. Solid IPA.

Beerathon (1112) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Sweet malts with nice citrus hops. Not quite a "hop explosion", but a good IPA nonetheless.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Muddled label, standard US longneck. Misty green-ish, light brown beer, dense off-white head. Caramel and light diacetyl aroma, with moderate vegetal hops. Heavy hopping, but not too bitter. Woody, some grassiness, caramel. Nice, bittersweet finish. Oily body. Diacetyl starts to get a little clingy. Thanks to LuckyDog.

Listigovers (292) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
What’s nice refreshing IPA, brownish in colour, huge hop flavor without going too overboard. Very easy to drink, dry but not too bitter.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with light lacing head. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, and a substantial malt backbone. Flavor is moderately sweet but balanced with a long lasting bitterness throughout. Very hoppy but balanced as well

Ed5388 (1977) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12oz bottle (no bottled on date) from Berkeley Spirits. Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of frothy off white head. Not much aroma, but what I get is some graininess, with hints of grapefruit, and orange zest. Could be past its prime. Taste of grapefruit, old citrus skins, bready malts, orange marmalade, and pine. Taste was much better then the aroma. Don't think this was old, but definitely not its freshest. Average at best.
