COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Riot IPA is our flagship beer. Brewed in the American IPA style with a definitive "Left Coast" attitude. We brew our IPA with an aggressive bitterning level which is complimented and balanced by a defined malt backbone. Our final signature is the dry hop step where fresh hops are immersed in the finished beer to provide the floral and citrus aromas of our IPA, a Hop Riot indeed.

Pot-pouri nose - quite delicate for a typical US IPA. A touch sweet, pretty standard in all the other ways - UCSC Tasting June 12

Draft. I don’t know about this. There was something off on the flavor. A strange sweetness and tang. Pine hops and stuff. Wasnt keen on it.

tomekk1978 (406) - POLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Barwa: złota, lekko zmętniona (prawdopodobnie drobinki chmielu). Piana obfita, biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie. [5/5] Aromat: zdecydowanie zdominowany przez chmiel. Z butelki jest może niezbyt zachęcający (słód plus granulki chmielu), ale po przelaniu jest już bardzo dobrze. Cytrusy (pomarańcze i mandarynki) w połączeniu ze świeżością. Zdecydowanie kuszące. [4,5/5] Smak: słodowy z przyjemną cytrusowa goryczką. Mimo dość wysokiego poziomu alkoholu nie jest on dominujący (lekko ogrzewa przełyk na końcu) i piwo pije się dobrze. Raczej do spokojniejszego sączenia, ale dla mnie to zaleta. Jest to moje pierwsze podejście do piwa z browaru High Water. Cieszy niezmiernie, że od razu udane. IPA bardziej słodowa niż wytrawna, do tego w górnej granicy ekstraktu (zapewne) i alkoholu, przez co jest bardziej pełna. Aromat jest śliczny i po otwarciu przez długi czas utrzymuje się na tym samym poziomie. Mógłby być odrobinę bardziej intensywny, ale wyjdzie, że się czepiam, bo piwo i tak jest bardzo dobre. Ogólnie wszystko, tak jak lubię, do raczej powolnej degustacji podczas której można docenić walory smakowe oraz aromat. Zdecydowanie polecam.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Bronze-bodied with a thin head. Sharp pineapple nose sweetness with muted bitterness. The flavor has a decidedly more grapefruit-forward chord, that while strong, has a smooth, subdued bitterness. Solid.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2014
650ml bottle from Bierkompass

Pours orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of grassy hops, bready malts, earthy notes, hay, fruits and caramel. Taste is smooth, bready malty, crispy hoppy, grassy and fruity with notes of hay, herbs and pine. Finish is lingering bitter, crisp malty and slightly bready with grassy and herbal notes. Not your typical American IPA, but still quite good.

laiti (5414) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is somewhat gluey and sweet with caramel, fruity hops and hints of hay. Flavour has glue, some fruits, caramel and biscuits. Also distant hayish notes. A bit too much on the glue side, but not bad still.
