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

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.

I donít 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.

Bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a murky burnt-orange with resinous off-white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and hoppy with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

[:39] Fucken a bro this shit is some garbage. Pour an amber red with an off white head. Bitter soap, heavy caramel malt, and loads of unfermented sugars round out this filth. Bitter sweet finish. U jokin?

Mediocre IPA at best. Nothing really stands out and there isnít a lot of hops or malt. Some light off flavors as well.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Aroma is citrus, mildly sweet malts and a hint of wheat/fruit. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, fruit, mild chemical off notes and a bitter finish.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a very hazy, deep orange color with a quick falling white head. Aroma has a very strong lemon profile, light bitterness, strong toasted malts at the tail end. Flavor starts off with a strong lemon, mild tropical fruit with a light touch of a grassy, stale bitterness followed by a mild grainy ending. Body is light and very fizzy. Overall all a definite "meh" IPA. Flavors donít work very well together and lack any smooth transitioning seen in a solid IPA. Definitely not something I will have again, albeit a very neat label as anything with Avogadroís number is going to pull my eye in instantly.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 This beer sucks. Its not an IPA as far as I am concerned. Its another Minhas brew, which I cannot believe how bad everything they make sucks. There is absolutely no hop presence, just an artificial and "twangy" taste and a sticky mouth feel. Horrible, dont buy even just to try it.. it sucks

An average ipa. Very hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a craft beer but not one I woul get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
