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

Bottle from Brook-Falls Discount. Pours an orangey-pink grapefruit with a white head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma has fruit and some breadiness. Taste is of some fruit, some sweet sugar and some off flavor malts. Sweetish without any real ipa-ness to it. A malty saison? Not sure what they were doing here. It was not a pourer, but it really had nothing redeeming about it either.

rubbishystuff (2334) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2013
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

Midwest Brewers Fest. Poured slightly hazy orange with white head. Sweet honey aroma with lil hop. Unpleasant taste. Bitter and incorrect.

hombrepalo (1971) - 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.

jaymobrown (1843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Not too bad, but it could have used a lot more hops. Bread, yeast, malt, with some dark fruit like plum or raisin. Decent finish with a chewy mouth feel. Noticeable alcohol.

bleeng (1668) - 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.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2013
[: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?

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 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.

ryecatcher (1354) - Bridgeport, 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.
