COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the request of you hopheads, we produced this I.P.A. with a deep golden color, plenty of hop bitterness balanced by malt sweetness. Because of the extensive dry hopping, there’s a floral and citrus hop finish. It’s then lightly filtered to maintain the appropriate body and flavor. The beer features a combination of American, English and German malts to balance the large amount of hops. The HopFish also uses three hop varieties at five different times and has been dry-hopped for two weeks with 22lbs of Nugget whole leaf hops.

Poured into pint glass. I immediately smell the hops in this one. Golden/light amber body with 1/2 finger white head. Citrus dominates the aroma. Tastes clean, hops, citrus, and malt backbone. A good smooth medium palate. Pretty good but not the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle pours a very lite straw-color. Moderate off-white head lasts about a minute or two. Some floral and citrus aromas from hops but not very impressive. Tastes a bit run of the mill with somewhat of a harsh aftertaste. Mouth feel is a bit thin with high carbonation.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with a sticky white head. Aroma is grassy hop, pear. There’s a grassy hop bitterness throughout, with caramel malt sweetness, toast and a touch of tangerine.

ArtMac (3) - Hop Bottom, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014 does not count
I really enjoyed the aroma, the finish was nice and clean for such a robust hoppyness.

Draft in Newark, NJ. An amenable up a that I wish had a bit more central grain body. It wavered a bit from the strong upfront hop laden citrus introduction. Finish dwindled normally. A decent brew overall.

From a bottle. Good pour but a very average taste. Wanted to like it more, but didn't. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (1700) - Silver Spring, USA - JAN 7, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at Judges' Bench in Ellicott City, MD. Clear golden color with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt and light floral hops. Taste of herbal hops, biscuit malt and light fruit with an earthy and bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
