COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Mediocre IPA at best. Nothing really stands out and there isn’t 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 (1454) - 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 don’t 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 Avogadro’s 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

hombrepalo (1819) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Had this at Elwoods tap. Pours deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.

Clear amber with a large tan head. Aroma is mega floral with caramel and grains. Taste is floral as well with sweet malt and moderate bitterness.

From B and C. Hop heads probably won’t be to big on this as it is a very malty but not very hoppy IPA. The hops were medium bitter but quite spicey herbal piney. As and IPA maybe not so much but overall it wasn’t so bad. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Amber pour with frothy head. Smells of very sweet malts. Tastes of light hops and stale water. Not sure if this is actually brewed by minhas or if the water in Monroe is bad but it seems like no good beer comes from there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
