COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An experiment brewed during the hop shortage, this "accident" has become one of our most popular beers. It doesnít earn the title of Full Time beer, but our customers have made it clear we should keep this hopped-up version of our red ale in stock, or else.

Draft in their taproom. Red pour with white head. Spicy and dry. Bitter as hell. Somewhat hoppy. Very good.

Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Nice floral, citrus hop aromas. medium body. Very good floral, citrus, tropical fruit hoppy flavors in a caramel malt base--tasty red

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Sample at the brewery tap room (as "Superchopp"). The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is malty up front with a resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

shadey (1900) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2012
on tap at the brewery. Iím again confused by the ESB categorization. I understood this to be their super-IPA offering. Dark in color with monster hop presence. The body was substantial - a high quality, bigger IPA. It wasnít anything that stood out to me, and given the opportunity, I would much rather pound a bunch of the Johnny Utah.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Sample at brewery. Clear gold, thin white head. Aroma of pine and floral hops, toffee. Taste is well balanced with sweet malt and bitter hops. Great beer.

Zeswaft (1370) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2011
Indeed a hoppier version of Choppers. citrus hops are everywhere. lots of grapefruit aroma and flavor. almost hopped to soapyness. quite sweet. i think a an imperial amber is an apt description.

after4ever (6130) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Draft at jules maes. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a loose white head. Gorgeous big tropical fruity nose. Mango and pineapple. Soft woolly body. Toast, caramel, and orange peel marmalade on the mid palate. Lightness of the body makes absolutely no sense with the turbine powered hop plume on the nose, but theyre both good (great, even), even if they are two different beers in the same glass. Long tangy fruit finish.

Gachupines (901) - USA - APR 3, 2010
Dark amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is hoppy with some pine notes. Flavor is fairly hoppy, mostly piney notes again. Well balanced with malt presence as well. Finish is fairly bitter hops though, overall itís well done. I would pick this up if I lived in the area. Growler refills are very well priced.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Growler - Thanks KFInn!!! - Pours murky amber with a medium beige head...aroma is full of gritty grain and hop resin, caramel, floral hops as well...flavour is similar, piney and malty, cereal grain, just worked very well together, good stuff!

BuckeyeBoy (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2009
On tap at Georgetown Brewing Co. Pours out brown with some red highs topped with a nice head. Aroma of rich malts and floral hops. Tast of a nice hop and plenty malts even a touch of wood.
