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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2009
Cask gravity at Bedford BF ’09. 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 Bedford’s Corn Exchange opened and I’ll be surprised if it’s not my Best of the Festival.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2010
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.

Fin (8011) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Cask, gravity at Merton Summer Beer Festival, 16-07-10 Pours amber with a slim white head there is a touch of haze also. Interesting aroma, its hoppy, spicy and floral with some sweetness wafting on as well. Taste is lovely, wonderful bitter orange flavour but then the fruity sweetness floods through, lovely hoppiness throughout, touch spicy and peppery, bitterness and sweetness well balanced. Marvellous and one of my favourites. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Pours cloudy golden brown with an off-white head. Smells of citrus fruits and a some slight sweetness. The front end of the beer tastes of fruits and hops and the back end leaves a bitter taste. Lightly carbonated.

sm89walt (1783) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Poured with a small, loose white head bubbling atop a golden amber body. Bit of cheese on the aroma initially but as this faded it just burst forth with grapefruit, green, resiny hops and subtler, sweet tangerine notes. Quite thick and malty balancing a dryish, resiny, grapefruity hop bitterness. Juicy & succulent, soft, medium body with a biting hop finish. Big & full but rounded with plenty of everything going on.

Bullit (4029) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Amber colour, off-white head. This is an odd IPA. Aroma initially flowery, then citrus and some malts. Flavour is malty, bit of citrus and resin. Brown sugar, sticky caramel, fruits. Hint of ash in the finish. Very pleasant.

imdownthepub (10985) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest ’10. Amber to gold with white head. American style IPA and yes intensely hoppy, in fact incredibly so. The bitterness is on the tongue stripping side, I felt as though my mouth had been dried out with a hair dryer. Having said that the pleasure is in the flavour delivery from the American hops, playing a tune across the taste buds. They say you need saliva to taste, this proves otherwise.
