COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing the perfect ale is truly a balancing act ... Hazardous work you might say. With Hop Hazard our challenge was to hand craft a malt rich base that could counterbalance a combustible five-hop blend and still leave your taste buds with enough room to enjoy a unique, dry-hopped finish.

ryanscourt (889) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Was not too impressed. Was fairly watery and dull. Hops were present but not very impactfull. Flavor was fairly weak. Tasted like a skeleton - missing the rest of the beer.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Notes of caramel, toast, and a light citrus aroma hit the nose. The beer is a murky copper hue with an off white, creamy and soapy head that has good retention and lace. The taste is slightly north of medium bittersweet. Itís Slick and oily with a smooth foam carbonation, almost creamy. The medium body contains bittersweet citrus and caramel notes along with bread crust. It finishes somewhat crisp and mostly bready with a bitter citrus. Itís lightly astringent and has a burnt aftertaste thatís long mellow with notes of bitter fruit and bread.

Bork (436) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2015
A lot maltier than your average pale ale which balances out and almost hides the hop bitterness that arrive midway. Heavy and rich.

Bottle. Deep amber with a slight, off-white, head. Sweet, hoppy aroma, with some citrus fruit and a whiff of pine. Flavour was similar, leading to a dryish finish. Fine.
