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.

This beer is the definition of a typical obligatory IPA. Aroma was average. Light hoppiness, with citrus and notes of pine. Pour was a light orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty boring. The grainy sweet malt backbone is balanced by lemon, grass and grapefruit hops. Neither flavor is very strong or full. The beer would be a good introduction to IPAs for a BMC drinker. Medium carbonation round the beer out. Slightly sweet finish.

I really enjoyed the aroma, the finish was nice and clean for such a robust hoppyness.

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

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.

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

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

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.
