The aroma and flavours are loaded with hop oils and resins - hence the name! The large amount of hop additions give intense spice, herbal and citrus characters to the beer.

A Mes rate. Gravity at Merton Beer Festival.
Gorgeous amber gold colour with a good off white head. Fantastic sweet yet resiny hop snout. A great blend of candy floss and fresh cut grass. The flavour follows on well. Really herbal and slightly floral, more candy floss and superbly bitter hops. Cleaner than you would expect. Another bloody enjoyable, well made cracker from Hopshackle.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2010
Cask. Hazy amber golden with a creamy yellowish head eaving laces. Sweetish fruity - exotic - nose from the hops. Quite ful-bodied, low carbonation, intense fruitiness and caramel - very sweet - before rather distinct hops and alcohol in the finish. 200110

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2010
Cask gravity: last beer at Leicester before I got dragged to Pizza Express by the missus. The things we do for love. Pours tawny ringed with fine white. Pungent, Mikkeller Single Hop-like (Tomahawk?) concentrated aroma of flowers, lemon rind, citrus-infused chocolate, smoked nuts, earth and Palma Violets. Wow. Quite a mixed bag of stuff going on; more violets on the palate, bitter orange, grapefruit and husky malts flecked with alcohol heat and petals. Slick and punchy, but balanced with malt interest. Like it.

leaparsons (9682) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2010
Cask, Leicester Fest 10. Hazy amber with minimal foam. Aromas are toffee and pine with some nuttiness. Strong bubblegum with some floral aspects. Resinous green pine with a light woodiness. Flavours are peppery and spicy with a sweet toffee and caramel base. Some cream and vanilla oakiness. Warming alcohol on the finish with pine and grapefruit bitterness. Has a long finish. Very nice.

Cask Handpump at the Smithfield Hotel, Manchester 20/01/2010 Slightly spicy aroma. Amber coloured very strong in alcohol and fruity with a bubblegum flavour. A hint of initial bitterness leading to a sweet dry and warming malt finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2009
Cask gravity at Bedford BF í09. Beautiful bright copper amber. Sweet honeyed malt aroma and oily, well-rounded malty taste. Sharp bitterness to finish. Another lovely strong beer from Hopshackle. I went straight for this the moment the doors of Bedfordís Corn Exchange opened and Iíll be surprised if itís not my Best of the Festival.
