An India pale ale to round off the current selection of Feral pale ales. Hophog is an American-style IPA with strong pine needle and citrus aroma followed by an aggressive bitterness and a dry finish.

Editor’s note: also known as American IPA, back label.

Very nice West Coast style IPA while a little more gentle on the bitterness than is typical. Juicy aroma. Perfect balance between citrus and malt notes in the flavour. One of the nicest grapefruit aftertastes I’ve had in a heavily hopped beer. Good from the bottle, even better on tap.

Pours a cloudy amber with a big foamy long lasting white head. Lots of grapefruit and pine smell from the hops. Taste loads of citrus/grapefruit and spicy hops up front followed by slight biscuity notes from the malt. Ends dry and very hoppy, not overly bitter. Love this beer

SWCraftbeerfan (3) - Bunbury, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013 does not count
This is what Western Australian craft beer is all about! The best WA beer by far. Hoppy goodness on the nose, slightly sweet with all the pine needle, stone fruit flavours you would want, ends with a perfect balance of good strong bitterness that an American IPA should have. These guys at Feral Brewing know their beers!

Jado (673) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2013
From 330 ml bottle, it pours a deep amber with a thin but lasting white head. Lots of hops on the nose, with aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and lime coming through. The taste is more tropical fruit with a solid biscuit malt backing that gives way to more subdued flavours of kemon, vanilla and a bit of spice. Not as bitter as I was expecting, but a refined Aussie-style IPA all the same.

Dredd (733) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2013
Pour is cloudy amber with white head. Nice aroma with hints of pine. Good flavor with initial sweetness moving to stone fruit followed with a long bitter finish.

Fresh hops. Really fresh, bit of sweetness. Lingering hop aftertaste. Refreshing. Not too bitter, just the pleasant bitterness of the hops. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
