ben4321 (4467) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Location: 750 ml corked and caged bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 12/4/10, as Fegley’s Brewworks Hop’solutely

Aroma: The nose is somewhat suptle, some resin, floral notes, malts, and a hint of tropical fruit
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a thick (2 + fingers) and foamy beige head
Flavor: The taste is fairly balanced, leaning bitter, light citrus sweetness, and a dry bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, the alcohol is pretty well-hidden, and the texture is a touch oily
Overall Impression: This wasn’t the best Double IPA (or Triple as they claim on the bottle) that I have ever tried, but it was an enjoyable brew. It seems to improve with a touch of warmth to it in my opinion. Anyway, not that exciting in my opinion, but not a bad beer either. I just expect a little better in this style.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is pine, citrus and some bready malt. Not sure why, but the aroma is fairly sweet. The flavor is very sweet, with some syrupy citrus notes. I also get a little bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle courtesy blutt59. Hazy light orange pour with a tiny white bubbly head. Aroma is heavy on the hops, tree sap and a hint of body odor. Flavor is sharp sweet notes, pinecone and syrup. Very sweet flavor with drippy hops.

750 ml bottle purchased at Canal’s Hainesport shared with Dean. Poured a slightly hazed honey orange body with a large foamy off white head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of hops a’la 120 minute, or as I ike to refer to it, hop syrup. The remainder is orange concentrate, liquid caramel, lots of alcohol, celery and pepper. The body is thick and syrupy with medium full carbonation and a hot finish that is made up of not just alcohol heat but pepper heat as well. The flavor is hop syrup, alcohol, pepper and celery. Sorry but tone this one down some because of right now I’m not a fan.

750 ml bottle shared by Eric- thanks! Pours a cloudy orange/copper color with a small bubbly white head. The aroma is very light hops, some toast. A decent flavor; sweet citrus and fruity hops, light bitterness, not hot, some toasted malt and caramel. Smooth and easygoing.

msante79 (2212) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Pours hazy golden caramel orange with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, sweet caramel, and hops. Flavors of citrus, pine, sweet caramel, bitter hops, and a good amount of booze. This is a pretty big brew. Was not the cloying sweet caramel mess I thought it was going to be. Solid brew.

deyholla (7622) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear amber with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a pine hop note that grew with a slight grain backing. Flavor was pine the grew to become quite intense and almost leave a burn on the tongue. The pine really over powered everything else in the beer.

Bomber from the local. Pours a clear orange amber with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a delight to my hop loving senses. Leafy, citrusy, hop notes spring from the bottle. Crisp and refreshing with steady carbonation. Alcohol not very well hidden in the finish but I’m not complaining.
