COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
”Hop Madness” is a cask conditioned, dry hopped India Pale Ale that leaves a bitter aftertaste, perfectly describing the mood of Cleveland sports fans these days.

On tap at the brewpub. About an inch of frothy head. Pretty meh coloring. Decent hop pal or but kinda one dimensional bitter for me.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours hazy honey amber with a decent white light sandy head and decent lacing. Aroma is too subtle for me, vague citrus notes from the dry hopping. Flavor is much better, bringing a nice balance, more bitter than sweet hops, but placed so well on the palate. It is a lighter beer, but still enjoyed.

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2013
Tap at Milltown. Confused why they felt that they needed to change the name of this beer (from "The Quitness" ) for the NC market. Im pretty sure anyone with a tv or internet who follows sports even a little bit, knows about Lebron James and how he left Cleveland. Light cloudy/heavy haze orange golden with a thin webby lace. Nose is heavy citrus, light tropical notes, fairly dry, florals, light caramel. Flavor is similar, light to medium bitterness, light boozy finish.

emacgee (3954) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Soft fruity notes and a touch of citrus rind show in the aroma. Very well balanced by bready malt and a touch of toasted grain. A light sweetness in the flavor with a prominent and firm bitterness. Citrus zest is very heavy here with some tropical fruits.

Rrauth (1115) - North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft. Now called hop madness in North Carolina. Side note. Had lagunitas Waldo first. This seems a bit weak. It's interesting since it seems sessionable bit at 7.5 its hidden nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Had on tap at GLBC. Pours a golden color with decent white head. The aroma is typical of an IPA; very citrus and grapefruit like with some nice floral hops and pine. The taste was the same but it had an awesome bitterness to it that I loved. Really wish they would bottle this.

AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2010
On-tap at the brewpub, December 2nd after the Cleveland-Miami game. Hazy golden-orange with a bit of white head. Smells of citrus; pineapple and grapefruit most notably. Both of these noticeable in the taste as well, along with the beer’s touted hop bitterness. Could easily have drank a few of these that night.
