Brewed for Union Jacks. Formerly Legacy Hoptimus Prime. Aggressively formulated with five different hop varieties, Hoptimus Prime is then dry hopped for two weeks, ensuring a MASSIVE hop flavor and aroma. Perfectly balanced with three types of malt, Hoptimus Prime is truly the pinnacle of hop flavor. This Double IPA pairs fantastically with spicy Thai food, Mexican cuisine, or a big olí bowl of chili.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 650ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber, finger of off white head, good lacing. Aromas of strong hoppy citrus, grapefruit, caramel, some tropical fruits, pineapple. Taste up front the citrus smacks you in the face with a grapefruit, in a good way, some light caramel notes. Medium carbonation. And rolls into an amazing bitter lingering finish, not overbearing. Excellent beer.

Pretty certain I reviewed a different beer when I thought I first had it on tap. This is an update. On tap. Slightly hazy copper, no cap. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, toffee, biscuit. Taste is a citrusy sweetness upfront, with a gentle rindy bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Murky copper pour with an off-white head. Big aromas of citrus peel an a bit of an herbal note coming through as well. Flavor is hop forward but thereís bit of a sharp flavor in there that I canít pinpoint exactly but almost a tartness...strange. Anyways the hop flavors are nice and the abv well-hidden. Not too shabby. Thanks to Mikeq215 for the bottle!

Rating #823 - December 11, 2013 - Beer 4 of 6 in the Coop Discovery Bag for December 9%. Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is mild orange, lemon, lime, mild floral aroma.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out. Would have loved more pine/resin on the palate, turned out to be more of a fruit bomb for me.

Pours a copper orange with a beige head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is sweet up front, delicious tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, resin and hops with a bitter sweet, fruity finish. Excellant, tasty DIPA

halfonit (1192) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a deep golden color, a little hazy, with some of the thickest head Iíve seen in a beer. I mean this head is legendary. Aroma is of malts, hops, citrus, some booze, and resin. Medium to full body. Flavor is very well balanced. I can pick up malts, hops, citrus, bread, slight grapefruit, and a little pine. Leaves a nice hop finish. This one definitely lives up to the hype. Iíve been wanting to try this one for a while and happy I finally have.

aroma is mostly floral hops with a hint of candyish malt, funk and perhaps pine..very nice looking clear amber/orange with creamy white lasting head..taste a very dry potent almost astringent bitterness is the main impression a bit of candylike flavor waaaayy in the background..strangely light bodied slightly creamy feel but again a way bitter finish..overall yes plenty of hops but not plenty of balance and as bitter as the hops are the flavor is lacking in substance..its okay but odd and its bargain priced compared to some is the best I can say about it
