As a child, RoboHop was shunned for his laser beam eyeballs, bulbous hop-shaped torso and robotic limbs.
During adolescence however, things changed for our hero. He captained his high school hockey team, routinely took over dance floors, and thusly, garnered a lot of attention from female classmates.
Today, RoboHop battles blandness by making this killer-hoppy and bracingly bitter beer. Suffer.
Seasonal: Part of Tank Ten Series.

The first time in a bomber rather then can, it still holds up very well. The hoppy bitterness gives way to a citrusy back end that is quite refreshing.

QcBeer (136) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Couleur Or pale avec une belle mousse blanche qui diminue vite mais qui est toujours la avec sa petite effervescence. Arôme bien sucré avec des notes de caramel, et de céréales et un peu résineux! En bouche, c’est des saveurs de caramel, pin, citron et légèrement épicé au palais, une finale sèche sur des notes résineuses et herbacés!! Vraiment bon!

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
650 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden colour with a bit of white head. Short retention and lots of lacing.

Aroma: Hops and citrus

Flavours: Grapefruit, other citrus, trace of malt.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and coating. Very pleasant.

Overall: I really like this one and considering it’s a GLB Tank 10 beer, I’m not surprised. Lots of bitter citrus but there is enough of a balance where other characteristics like a trace of malt come through.

HippyHop (604) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
nectar of the gods right here. Golden orange pour with a frothy off-white cap that leaves some nice lacing. Hop heaven on the nose: pink grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, fresh pine - this stuff is just so gee-dee inviting. Solid, chewy caramel malt backbone stands up perfectly to the hops/bitterness. These guys are so damn good at making balanced hop bombs, and this might be the best of their tank ten series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obtenue via échange, cette bière est succulente!!! C’est plus minéral et rond en bouche que les comparables... L’alcool est somme toute très discret. Il y a une belle finale poivrée. Encore!!!!!

Frothmeister (733) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours hazy and the colour of honey with a thin off-white head. On the nose, passion fruit, fresh pineapple, grapefruit, with some resinous notes, and a very faint note of raw squash. Taste wise, whoah. Peach and apricot up front with grapefruit, resinous notes, with some alcohol burn that leads into medium sweetness and a more resinous lean with lots of cirtusy pith in the finish. Somehow another solid IPA from Great Lakes.

Bouteille 650 ml. 8.5%. Couleur jaune assez foncé, mousse blanche. Nez de houblons assez puissant, beaucoup de conifère, un peu d’agrume et du malt très légèrement sucré. En bouche, base maltée suffisante, houblon et une amertume tranchante. Une bombe de houblon. Très bonne.

jksipa (799) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle from the LCBO. Very cloudy amber with a two finger off white head that clings to the glass all the way down. Nose is grapefruit, citrus peel, pine, mango, light honey and some floral notes. This is all about the bitterness which is grapefruit and pine from start to finish with enough of a light sweet malt support to provide some balance and it all integrates the alcohol quite well. Mouth is medium full with average carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. More. 9+/4+/8/4/18-

Gluepot (450) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
A thin white head on a dense, unfiltered golden body. A punchy, fresh grapefruit nose. This is a classic big west coast DIPA. Fruity and bitter hops feature grapefruit, fruit rind, pineapple and a splash of orange. Fresh and juicy, supported by clean, sweet malt with a solid body.
