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.

Draft at beer revolution. Slight haze orangey golden with flabby head. Tropical juicy fruit forward, slight piney dank, hint of butter, caramel, ice tea, pretty damn sweet smelling. Fruity citrus, on the flat side, ice tea, some soap...missing balance and overly sweet for me.

"Not sure of the age on here as it ain’t dated and some of these bombers seem to sit. Seems a little faded. Light hop aroma of pine and a little tropical fruit. Flavor much the same but a touch on the malt heavy side. A little boring though I could see this having potential."

Douberd (2285) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
(High Water Hop Riot IPA) Bottle 650 ml at home, thanks to MarkoNm. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7.3% Golden orange colour on the body, slightly hazy, with a good sized and thick off-white head. Good retention, light lacing left behind. Aroma is quite fruity, with some citrus, orange peels, some mango too, biscuits. Taste also fruity, the hops have faded a bit but there are still traces of them, orange, mango, caramel malts. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste, with good duration. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Just a tad dry on the palate. Overall quite good, I can only imagine how much better it would be if fresher.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
2014-08-14. Crisp dark orange body with a modest off white head and light lace. 3+ Aroma is surprisingly biscuity with toasty pale malt character, mild fruit and hops over top. Flavour is pleasantly bitter hops up front but has a very sweet malty core. Pale malt has biscuity bready notes. Moderately fruity, mango and tropical notes pretty sweet. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent, it is too sweet and malty for an IPA but sort of nice anyways. On tap at Blue Monk, Buffalo
