Hop Slinger gets its golden copper color from the light caramel malts, which provide a solid backbone to support all the great hops. This beer presents with an overwhelming citrus aroma that leads into an unmistakable flavor of grapefruit. Hop Slinger leaves you with a nice dry bitterness that pairs well with spicey curries, salty fried foods and ginger based deserts.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 This is the first day that brews became available from the new home town brewery and this one has exceeded my expectations. It looks good in the glass and has a very sweet citrus and floral aroma. The hop flavors of pine and citrus are strong but not overpowering. If you’re a hophead then you’ll thoroughly enjoy this beer.

Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is hazy golden yellow. Aroma is pine, citrus. Taste is pine, citrus, and resinous moderately bitter hops. Palate is light bodied with average to lively carbonation, finish is bitter citrus. Overall, a pretty straightforward IPA without anything surprising or standing out.

Super swap dump murky pour, thick and gross caramel and slug. Nice subtle white head and lacing. Aroma of old orange, distant hop product. A more malt aggressive Ipa if one. Aftertaste is gross bitterness with orange particles. Can’t judge a book by its cover. Eh

Une blonde légèrement voilée, ayant une mousse légère, compacte et persistante qui glisse contre la paroi sans s’accrocher. Des arômes de fruits (plus ou moins) tropicaux; ananas, pamplemousse et autres agrumes divers, pêches et du conifère sur un fond malté. Une forte amertume mêlée à un alcool qui voudrait bien se faire discret dès les premiers instants. Les saveurs fruits arrivent en arrière-plan et le malt les accompagne. Merci encore une fois mon frère. (Version à 7%) (1585-150915)

Draft. Gold Amber mix. Light Grapefruit and pine. A little caramel. Very very drinkable. More of a pale ale than an ipa. Not bad.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. Lots of caramel malt on the palate with sticky mouthfeel and a hint of cardboard. Pine and citrus hop profile that has moments of focus but gets a bit astringent on the finish.

Brattleboro Food Coop: pours copper with a nice white head. Aroma is some citrus, maybe a hint of pine, but overall not a powerful aroma. Taste is lightly bitter with hints of sweetness. Not a very powerful ipa but easy to drink.
