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.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, - JUN 9, 2013
Small yellowish head fed by finely carbonated, initially hazy glowing orange beer. Fruity, slightly grapey hops; hopoils, resin, spruce, juniper, spicy, but also apricot. Very bitter, metallic. Fruity, grapefruit, citruspeel, bitter melon. Very dry; finish is a tad empty. Astringency, resiny feel. Medium to well-bodied, however, spritzy. Decent, if slightly metallic IPA.

thewolf (11127) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Tap @Taphouse, Cph. Pours hazy dark golden with a small, staying, creamy off-white head. Aroma has grapefruit, apricot, peach, light caramel malts. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good malty sweetness, a touch of red apple zest, caramel, good peach, papaya, pineapple. Lingering, solid bitterness. Nice.

maxwelldeux (3489) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a fairly hazy amber color with a large off white head on there. Nose is old grassy and earthy but without a lot of the nice fresh hop character I like in an IPA. Taste is a little sweet and malty, and also quite earthy. Not really all that good...

JakobHoumoller (16) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden appearance. The aroma has notes of tropical fruits, lemon zest and hay. The taste is hay, grapefruit and pine accented by the rather high car carbonation. Nice west coast IPA.

VintageViking (40) - - JUL 12, 2014
Dense, creamy white, lasting white head, and a clear copper pour. Crisp, dry aroma: citrus, sweet tropical fruits and grassy hops. The taste balances grapefruit and herby, piney bitterness with some malty sweetness. Strong, bitter, astrigent (ie - gorgeous!) aftertaste. A grown-up, elegant, well-constructed West Coast IPA.

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.
