COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoplicious is a flavorful American Pale Ale (APA) that features several American-grown hops from the Pacific Northwest. Amarillo, Cascade and Centennial hops give the beer its signature citrus-like flavor that blends nicely with its four different malts.

While full of aroma and extremely flavorful, Hoplicious utilized several different "hopping techniques" to give it a smooth bitterness that is not overly harsh. Medium-bodied and yellow-orange in color, the beer is unfiltered which imparts a slight haze but brings forth all the natural goodness of a craft-brewed beer.
OG: 1.055 ABV%: 6.3 IBU: 43

Draft. Hazy gold color. Nose is fresh citrus hops and a note of pine. Light malt is present however; the hops are the focal point. Fresh wet hops. Citrus and pine like the nose. The bitterness does not linger, short ending. Dry texture. The brewer calls this APA, dude tastes like a good IPA on my palate!

On tap today at the source. Pours a hazy medium golden color with a decent sized off white head that displays minimal retention with decent lacing. Smells of bitter pine with hints of citrus and little to no malt presence. Taste is harsh piney citrusy bitterness that lingers long into the end of every sip. Quite a drying enamel melting finish. Taste again has little to no malt presence. Medium body and carbonation level with a resinous almost sticky mouthfeel. The brewery calls this an APA, that is quite a stretch! It’s IPA if not a double although it might be a shade or two darker than guidelines. I found this to be flavorful, but the bitterness is a little bit harsh.

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-brown with a thick white head. Aroma is certainly hopalicious! Caramel malt, floral hops, light fruits, and a touch of citrus. Flavor of iced tea, caramel malt, citrus. Unfortunately, the flavor didn’t quite live up to what the aroma suggested...overall a disappointment. 7/4/6/4/13 [3.3/5]

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2010
A golden amber IPA with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, light floral hops with pinhey notes, very subdued. In mouth, a grainy malt with some pinhey hops, not bad but some light acidity points notes. On tap at the brewpub, April 5, 2010.

In short: A well malted and well hopped (fruity/pine-tree) IPA. Medium intensity, nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a white ring of foam
In long: Nose of oranges and pine-tree. Taste is crisp and sharp. The crunchy cereals have a Corn Flakes™ flavor (no kidding) with a touch of honey and caramel. Moderately fruity with fresh oranges and peaches. Pine-tree wood makes the beer end with a nice dryness. Bitterness of medium intensity. Not a hop bomb. This is a well balanced beer. This was the last beer of my Boston Extreme Beer Fest road trip. And it was about time, way too much beer during that week-end. Too much is too much. At some point I have to listen to my body. It’s got a bunch of cool stories about hanging out with Willie Nelson.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Piney hop resins expand into citrus fruit atop the svelte honeyed cereals of this balanced and poundable American Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy honeyed golden.
-The aroma is the same intensity as the flavor profile and its finish.
-Mild toasted malts allusions peek through the well-rounded body.
-The smooth carbonation and slick body make for easy drinking.
-Peachy fruitiness comes from the union of citrusy hops and malt sweetness.

On tap at the brewpub.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Enjoyed on tap with the brewer. An APA or an IPA, with Pacific Northwest. Amarillo, Cascade and Centennial. Unfiltered. Drying. A good bitterness overall, some sugar to balance it. Orangey with some lace. Aroma of C-hop.Appropriate carbonation.

mcox90 (1521) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 12, 2009
From a growler purchased at Milly’s. Pours a gold color with a 1" off white head. Aroma is heavy on the grapefruit with a malt backbone. Palate has a bit of body to it with lots of mouth puckering goodness. Reasonably well carbonated. Taste is heavy on the grapefruit hop with a touch of pepper. Lingering bitter finish.

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2009
growler-pours a rich light tan head that laces and gold color. Aroma is great resin/pine/leafy hops, some medium malt back bone. Taste is somewhat bitter-raw/resin/pine/leafy/lemon hops. Good carbonation. Thanks to kwatts1014 for picking this up on her trip to NH.
