Their hoppiest to date? No way. I am a big time hop head and I can’t detect any hops in this at all. Big disappointment. If this were a blind taste test, it would be a wheat beer all the way. I was actually wondering if I got a mislabeled case. Bummer...now I have a whole case to get rid of.

Too sweet......almost like a malt liquor with a chaser of hops. It definitely marches to a different beat than other IPAs. I like the bite and sharpness of most IPA styles but this one is not top shelf.

Not bad! Pours a light amber with a white head. Good Carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Taste is somewhat bitter with the hop flavor mixing well with the malt. Bitterness on back side is good.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly malty sweet but some hops come trough. Taste is also sweet and while some hops come trough it is a bit too sweet for an IPA, don’t get me wrong it is not bad but I was expecting a bit more hoppiness from a "HOP HOG"; however it does have a nice and very drinkable taste.

Superb, earthy amber/brown color with a few particles and foamy head/lacing. Aroma a bit overpowered by candied malt, but there is also some hop in there too. I also got malt first and foremost on the taste. Comes off more like a hoppy Bock than an IPA. Smooth, but a little thin/flat. It is not bad, but there are definitely better IPAs out there.
