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

joejames (175) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours very cloudy amber/orange. Two finger head, some lacing. Aroma of herbs and grass. Taste is a hop bomb bitter with nice sweet malts in the background. Full body, above average carbonation, chewy mouth feel. Finishes bitter with notes of pine, earthy hops, grapefruit. Alcohol is slightly noticed as it dries. This is a great DIPA.

kipmartin9 (1) - New York, USA - AUG 5, 2014 does not count
One of the most outstanding beers I’ve enjoyed (cask version on this occasion). Butterscotch nose, sweet hops (brought to mind sugar snap peas -- brightness without palate-rawness), chewy mouthfeel, long evolution of flavors on the palate.

Pours a cloudy brownish copper. Sweet, bready malts on the nose. Citrus, caramel, brown sugar, medium bitterness. All said, a really nice, drinkable DIPA.

John25 (677) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber/copper. Aroma is candied sugar, sweet citrus and floral hops, bread, and pine. The taste adds caramel, sweet syrup and earthy resin. Big malty mouthfeel with a surprisingly clean finish, not sticky at all. Good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thornecb (4528) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours deep gold into a Sam glass. Pancake head with medium retention recedes leaving sticky spiders. Earthy hop and tart citrus aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel and sourdough upfront turning to sweet pine and citrus in the lasting finish.
