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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light brown color with a thick rocky beige head. Slight grainy toasted malt aroma. Rich toasted malt flavor. Notes of caramel, nuts and vanilla. Nice balance with spicy hops in finish. Overall, a decent full-bodied flavorful ale.

MaBeer1972 (1262) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Six pack from NJ. Pours out a cloudy medium amber color. Nice frothy light tan head. Good malty aromas and flavors. Hop profile reminds me of some of my early homebrews. Flavors are a bit muddled, but overall this one drinks clean and enjoyable. Decent.

From notes: Poured hazy orange-amber with a 1-finger white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with a touch of caramel. Medium body, slightly oily with a brief, dry finish. Flavor of citrusy hops with nutty malt underneath.

NaturalIce (146) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
This is about your middle of the road pale ale. I was a little disappointed after then pour was a beautiful dark amber with a nice thick off white head...but it went away quickly. Aroma of hops, taste of alcohol is a little too much for my liking. Probably won’t buy again as there are many better alternatives.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Received in a trade from jdb288. This is quite dark for the style being darker brown. Hazy with a nice creamy beige head. I smell gentle caramel malts and the first sip is that. They are thick and creamy in the mouth. The after taste of that sip is all hops. Citrus with mild bitterness. That was pretty much every sip. Malt flavors with citrus in the after taste. Unusual. This was tasty and a good way to start a weekend.
