The Hopothesis IPA is the first of many cerebral drinking experiences. Our India Pale Ale is specifically formulated to be balanced, flavorful, and approachable. It can be easily paired with a variety of food and you can drink more than one and still feel quite lucid. Enjoy. Centennial & Cascade Hops 2-Row & Vienna Malts

Hazy amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of citrus hops, caramel, & some floral; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, hops, and citrus (notably orange); No real bitterness; Overall, kinda of weird - but not too bad.

This pours a clear golden color with a slight foamy head with a slightly bitter aroma. The taste is smooth and has a very sour/bitter tone. There is a flavor that tastes like old sour water that distracts from the overall taste. This could definitely use some work and improvements.

From sampler rack at the Pig....nose and color / appearance were good....taste not so much. Taste was kind of metallic and very very bitter...but not in a good way. Not good.

Draft at Chicago Hyatt regency. Doesn’t smell like much. Maybe a little hop. Taste is very mild and flat. Not very good.

ryecatcher (852) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber color, white head, so-so retention, nose is pine, citrus with some malt. Mouth is fruity hops, malt and a sweetness that lingers, cloyingly so at the end. Average.

bleeng (1548) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft at Courtyard downtown Chicago. Poured bright gold and clear. Mild piney nose. Taste is dry and with a nice fresh hop profile. Sessionable and enjoyable.

hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Very sweet and fruity aroma. Cloudy rust color. Medium carbonation. Tastes like a dubbel and not like an ipa. No noticeable hops. As a dubbel I would probably give it a better score.

whiskeyrocks (62) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
I don’t see where the Ipa is in this. Its very light. Not hoppy and no cirtus flavor. Its like an extremely watered down ipa. It poured a nice thick heaf but thats about all. I wouldnt reccomend this.
