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.

kathouse (1136) - Nevada, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Hazy amber in color with a thin white foam that leaves little in the way of lacing. Aroma was skunky at first. The stink finally blew off and left some floral and pine aromas. Powerful carbonation and a light/medium body. Flavor was a pleasant surprise given the smell it started with. Nice caramel base and a strong contingent of pine, citrus, and floral hop bitterness. Hop complexity is typical with a slightly floral finish.

Bottle with pat and vinny. Pours a clear orange golden with thin white soapy head and lacing. Aroma is apricot, fruity malt, and vague bitter character. Mouthfeel is light with notes of lemon, fruity malt, light bitterness, some soap and perfume character.

dhatton (71) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Murky brown body with thin head. Minimal lacing. More of a malty aroma than the punch of hops I was expecting. Some citrusy hops are noticeable. Bitter hop flavor up front that is balanced out with citrus notes. Overall, drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

skmikeg (1047) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours amber-orange with a half finger off white head which fades to very little lacing. aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, light bready malts, and some toffee. Taste is about the same as the aroma, with the malt notes dominating. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel, with a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-short finish. Overall, a decent English style IPA that is lacking a bit in complexity and body.

ttutony (719) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Light copper color with an off-white head. Fruity hop aroma, maybe a hint of tropical fruit. Not very bitter on the palate. Some maltiness on the palate. Easy drinking.

ibrubeer (148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Draft @ renaissance, PHL. Sought hoppy aroma. Medium Amber color, nice lacing. Hoppy taste, a little piney with a touch of citrus. Bitter aftertaste. Appropriate body, medium. Overall not a bad IPA, but Middle of the road.

reggiedunlop (3288) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has a good bit of dry leaves and toffee without sweetness...some earthy hops. Flavor follows suit...balanced leaning toward Malty. Mouthfeel is light / medium and the finish is earthy / malty.

asheft (2599) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
[on tap at Local 50, PHI airport] Perfumy hops aroma with some cereal grain and caramel malt; apricot and light pine accents. Clear light bronze under a persistent, thin, lacy white sheet. The malt flavour is darker than it looks, with pumpernickel and bread crusty caramel, complimented by bitter grapefruit pith, pine, and apricots. Medium body, moderate carbonation, midway between crisp and smooth.

slowrunner77 (6160) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"RJA was pretty spot on with this one. Not hoppy enough, too dark for an ipa, and a little too much sweet malty aroma, flavor and body for an ipa. below average beer - no need to revisit."

Beerathon (1331) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Very refreshing IPA. Not too heavy on the palate, perfect carbonation, floral and citrus notes from the hops. The malt bill is appropriate.
