330ml bottle at Lowlander, London WC2. Deep gold with a decent, tight white head. Aroma of caramel, floral slightly oily hops and orange. Flavour was also sweet, with a touch of green herb, honey and dryish finish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a just slightly cloudly, dark golden color with a modest, creamy head. Not much carbonation apparent at all. Aroma is quite pleasant. Very strong bready, yeasty smell with notes of earth and citrus. Taste is quite similar, but the citrus aspect is much more vibrant. Hints of bitter lime rise with notes of apple and wood. Texture is generously creamy with adequate carbonation to distribute the flavors nicely. Medium body beer with a nice, medium length bitter apple cider finish.
Not many layers in terms of flavor, but an overall enjoyable beer. I love the raw, bread scents.

The aroma is ginger, citrus. Very nice. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is ginger, candi sugar, citrus hops. The mouthfeel is on the thin sode of medium. The finish is booze, sugar, citrus. Overly sweet. Not bad at all.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Plenty of hops on the nose but little else. Extra points for being served in a ridiculously tall glass, with plenty of head. A little ostentatious, but memorable for sure. Flavour is a great mix of hops and malts, with a nice sharp finish. It’s a brilliant and extravagant beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, popped with a bang, slight gusher. Clear golden pour, very thick foamy white head leaving lacing. Aroma is of Belgian hops, spices, yeast and some light fruits. Flavor is slightly sweet, quite bitter, spicy and with quite some Belgian hops. Very lively carbonation and a creamy to bubbly texture.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Over carbonated clear golden yellow pour, and an aroma of sweet sugary malt. Flavor is also sweet malt\, syrupy peaches, hay and finished dry, bitter and a little warming with booze on the aftertaste. Not bad at $5/bottle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light cloudy lemonade yellow. Obnoxious white head won’t let the beer show through. Malty nose. Is this supposed to be a belgian? A little bit of hop resin. A confused beer, where yhe hops or the malt can dominate and win. The foamy head is the mosr entertaining partf of this beer. The body is quite heavy and the finish... pucker.

Golden orange with a foamy white head... Citrus and floral aroma... Flavor is citrus sweetness, alcohol content is fairly apparent, not much bitterness on the palate... Don’t really know why they call it hopus, there’s only a hint of bitterness on the finish... Decent
