COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fabled Hop-a-lot-amus is a mythical creature. The heavy hop character of this Double IPA is as subtle as a "river horse" in your lap, but finishes like a hippo in a tutu. Enjoy! 93 IBUs

Darker pour. Beer fuckin sucks, tastes like rotting vegetables, smells like maple syrup. Messed up,

Cloudy, dark amber with decent lacing head. Floral aroma with hint of citrus and malts. Based on the aroma was expecting a bit of a malt bomb, but is actually quite balanced. Nice floral and subtle citrus notes. Slick mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish. Big, full mouthfeel.

Murky caramel colored beer with a short lived off khaki head. Nose of alcohol, hop resin and some fruit. This is a big, chewy hop beer with lots of resin, some candied grapefruit rind, some pine, alcohol and caramel sweetness. A little rough with the alcohol.

Expecting more but the hop was a little less prominent than expected. Slightly low ABV for a double in my opinion. A little more mellow than I wanted. Comparable to a ST IPA.

BillWyce (694) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2013
From notes: Poured hazy orange-amber with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Light aroma of citrus mixed with some musty, bready yeast. Full body, mildly thick with a dry, earthy finish and a light astringency. Resiny hops flavor with some stone fruit, Earthy yeast and notes of citrus in the finish.

12 ounce thanks to Ed5388. Malty and hoppy. The overall taste, though, strikes me as a bit of light caramel and biscuit. Slight sweetness mixed with bitter. A bit unique.

Really good beer. Hoppy but not overwhelming. Very pleasant beer worth sipping.

Straight forward hop-centric 2XIPA, citrus, medium bitterness and sweet malts. Complex? Not really! 2XIPA that can get you buzzed? Absolutely!

Bottle. Great head. Cloudy dark copper. Lacing nice. Aroma is lacking. Head stays rocky. Bitterness is not crazy not underwhelming. I like it. Does have a little weirdness in the palate but still nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma of piny hops with citrus overtones, and some biscuit malt. The taste is pretty sweet up front, caramel maltiness, followed by lots of pine and citrus bitterness in the aftertaste.
