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.

Not a great IPA. Has a weird fruity taste to it that doesn’t go over well. Hops aren’t very strong either, blah, pass.

ordybill (769) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass in a pub in Gettysburg, PA. For bottle cap collectors the cap is awesome, a flying skeleton fish with airplane engines attached. This beer is a slightly murky golden yellow colored beer with a small white head. The brew has a mild hoppiness that was very refreshing. This is a light bodied beer with mild carbonation. a surprisingly nice find.

joejames (374) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Drank from a bottle at York, PA. Fair. Slight citrus hop nose. Slightly sweet, moderate bitter taste. Average carbonation, body is slightly thin, silky mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, lemon zest, orange peel and light spruce. It wasn’t bad for the only IPA available.

altonbrownd (4351) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Toasty amber body with medium head. Nose is quite hoppy with citrus notes. Taste is also quite hoppy, lots of pine and citrus with medium carbonation. Also nice warming, caramel in the finish. Good stuff.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Chris and Alisa brought this one back from a trip to New Jersey +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was crystal malt, grapefruit, lemon and a touch of pepper. The flavor was bitter and malty with a noted crystal malt presence and grapefruit, caramel and vague fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Can - hazy light orange with a bubbly medium head. Piney hop aroma and taste. Also some citrus in there. Very east coast IPA the sweet finish. Not very bitter.

Dacrza (665) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2015
DATE TASTED: June 13, 2015... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: Just returned from Liberty Day fireworks... APPEARANCE: light, bubbly body, with a hint of obscurity; white head is creamy and leaves lacing that resembles hedgerows; thick and consistent--a promising start... AROMA: immediate slap of caramel to the nose; some yeasts that blanket the hops with an earthy, funky distinction; what does slip through is soft citric hops, approximating lemon zest... PALATE: vivid, active on the back tongue; a balanced, medium-bodied experience... TASTE: subtle spice and balanced malts/hops make for an understated profile initially… caramel malts outstrip the hops, making this a sweeter IPA... OVERALL: as the label establishes a more British approach, with an easier drinking, maltier version of what the hop head is expecting; melon and flowery hops reward late—this is a solid beer with a decent ABV%...

callmemickey (3760) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
Lightly hazy dark golden colored body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Mild lemon and orange zest, florals, light grainy malts, and just a hint of grass. Meidum to light bodied, moderate carbonation, mild bitterness.

Bottle. Muted hoppy nose and flavors. Maybe it was an old batch, but all the hop/IPA flavors were flat and muted. Very disappointing, compared to other Flying Fish beers, such as Red Fish.

njnut (362) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a orange tinged Amber with white head and lace. Aroma of carmeled malts and light citrus. Taste was more malt heavy than hoppy. A light citrus note over carmel malts. Not a hop bomb and that made it more enjoyable for me.
