COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured from a 22 into a mini snifter. Smells of caramel and a bit of resiny hops. Taste pretty much follows with a nice bitter finish.

Been waiting to find this on draft and havenít been able to so... I picked up a 22 oz. bottle for $5.99 at my local Market Basket. No bottle date or label marker anywhere, like always. Cloudy gold color with light head retention. Aroma is grain, bready malt and light pine hops.

Flavor is a damn near copy of the aroma. With a light hint of womenís perfume with Dried straw. Bitterness is mild with a lighter side of medium in body. Overall, itís drinkable for sure but I still hope to see this on draft in the better beer bars in NH.

The best of the Henniler beer at the NH Brewfest... like the hoppiness and citrus flavors... sort of a "weird" aftertaste though....

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - NOV 30, 2013
$6.99 for the 650mL bottle purchased from town. Orange pour, soapy off-white head 1 fingernail in length. Aromas of hop oils, salted butter, pineapple, denim, and plastic. Tastes the same with the addition of nutritional yeast, Kero syrup, strawberry preserves, and pine needles. Way too bitter. Itís almost cloying.
