In response to growing interest in American style pale ales the Porterhouse has decided to resurrect a beer from our past. Based on a beer brewed somewhat ahead of its time, in our brewpub days, Hop Head is a highly aromatic, bitter, pale ale, made with the intention of satisfying the hop heads amongst us. Amber coloured, with a distinct malt character, generous use of hops for bittering and the triple addition of cascade and Hallertau Northern Brewer hops gives a conspicuous citrus character for both aroma and flavour. Along with a slightly higher alcohol content this results in a rich, fruity beer with an oily, citrus hop character and wonderfully rich, full mouthfeel.

Copper pour with a white lid. Aromas of hops, malt, spice, floral, grass, caramel. Medium carbonation and bittersweet. My mouth is left with a very slightly dry sensation. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Al Porterhouse di Londra, una buona (poco) pale ale molto luppolata che non esce dal solito cascade, ma comunque potabile

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Amber colored pour, hint of a caramel hue. Big off-white head that stays the course and leaves ample lacing behind. Big hop aroma. Citrus and malt mixed in as well. Taste of hops an malt. Nice medium-bodied mouthfeel. Nice beer to have when you want Celebration Ale, but don’t want all the ABV.
