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.

DYCSoccer17 (3590) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a mildly hazy light coppor color with a 2 cm fine bubbly white head with frothy lacing. Aroma is of barley and hops. Start is promising with moderate hoppiness and a roasted flavor. Finish is almost lacking any aftertaste and tastes a little watery. Mouthfeel is a little watery and cetainly not "full-bodied". This beer is a disappointment because I was expecting lots of hops, instead I got moderate hops and certainly not full bodied. All in all, it's a decent beer, but it doesnt match its description.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer pours a hazy deep amber color with a big billowy white head. The head fades slowly over time to leave tons of foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma of the brew is lighter overall consisting of some doughy smells mixed with a little bit of a caramel and a hint of a citrus hop smell of grapefruit. Along with these aromas comes a light grassy smell along with a little bit of a fruity smell of tangerine and orange. Taste Ė The taste begins with a super bready taste mixed with a little bit of a caramel sweetness and some light hop flavors of a citrus grapefruit nature. As the taste advances the bready taste remains strong and actually takes on some more doughy flavors, which keeps this brew very malty overall. Other lighter hop flavors of pine and grass come to the tongue more toward the middle and the end of the taste and with a little bit of a lemon and some other fruit flavors of a tangerine and peach flavor, along with a hint of hay, one is left with a rather malty and smooth flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the bready flavors and lighter hop flavors of the brew, the feel is rather appropriate, making for a rather nice thicker, more English style 60-90 shilling ale feel. Overall- The brew had a nice flavor, but was more malty and lacked a bit of hop for a pale ale, at least in my opinion. If looking for a malty ale then this is a good choice, otherwise, the hop hazard as stated in the name is very over-rated and not one to take as a truth.

Foxbush (1713) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2015
12 oz bottle This is one of the beers from AOPD for August. This is one of the best APAs I have had. The appearance was excellent. Great body and clean aftertaste. The APA poured a cloudy amber with 1/2 inch off-white head and modest lacing. The aroma of citrus hops greets you. The medium body ale had an average carbonation. This is a solid ale with a well balanced citrus hops and a clean dry finish.

Pours a slightly hazy copper from a bottle. Aroma of caramel, tropical and a little piney hoppiness. Flavor similar, hit of bitterness in the middle. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Pours orange-copper with a huge beige head. Caramel, orange, grass aroma. Taste is creamy, orange/caramel malts...soft peel/leafy bitter. A little breadheel. Nothing outstanding, but itís a pretty good, solid, rich and hoppy APA.

ARH (1100) - 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 (452) - 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.

downender (7686) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
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.

Dark golden-orange body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Light citrus and florals, biscuit and cracker malt that increases in intensity in the flavor. Medium bodied, light sweetness throughout, mild bitterness, moderate to lively carbonation.
