I really expected more from this beer. If you’re going to call it Hoptimus Prime...you best bring it. Although, maybe, it’s a Decepticon???

Hazy orange colour. Pine cone and esters on the aroma with a yeasty and paint thinner quality. Once this beer opens up those yeasty notes give way to a citrus explosion. similar on the palate, citrus bomb and malts balance each other out alot once this beer opens up. finishes hot and tropical. NICE!

22oz. Pours hazy orange/amber with average head. So yeasty! Banana all over the place with underlying citrus fruit, oranges, pineapple. Just gets more and more tropical. The palate is quite tropical as well. Tasty and interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blood orange under a thin pithy head which swirls with spotty lace and a foamy pithy head.
Mild at first, but quickly opens up to reveal spicy stewed stone fruits the likes of peaches and apricots. Key lime and lemon lime along the sides – fresh and zesty. Melba and flatbread cracker crunch underneath. Sticky hop resins in the middle.
Not as heavy as expected given the richness of flavors. Sweet up front with hop resins, peach, apricot, and orange oils. A long lingering bitterness in the back speaks of key lime and orange pith. Orange honey along the edges and on the lips. Quaff and repeat.
A solid sticky juicy Imperial IPA that had flavor but lacked depth and complexity despite its cool label and pop culture references. Good but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark amber color with a minimal head. Moderate amount of carbonation. Obviously heavy on hops and some hints of citrus, otherwise not particularly complex. Enjoyable nonetheless and a good example of an IPA but not much else going on here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-05-18. Dark amber body with a nice beige head. 3++ Sweet malty aroma with interesting hop overtones, resin, green leafy hops. 7+ Flavour is similar, nice malty core, caramel notes, moderate alcohol, resiny leafy hops. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. 3+ Enjoyable, bigger than anticipated - I didn’t realize how strong it was. Needs just a touch more Leadership Matrix. Bottle via trade with Ferris

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think that with a name like hoptimus prime it should be more of a pronounced hoppier taste. The malt over powers the hops in my opinion. That said although this imo is not a good representation of a dipa it is still enjoyable. The alcohol is hidden well and it is pretty sessionable and refreshing. Not my style as far as double ipa is concerned but tastey

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours orange gold. Nose and taste of perfumy hops, caramel malt, grass, alcohol soaked citrus and orange peel. Slightly spicy malt. Medium body. Finishes bitter orange/slight resin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber colour with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma is not too strong but has a noticeable citrus hop scent and some general fruitiness and grain malt notes. Taste is a little too sweet and lacking in bitterness for me. Light-medium body, thinner mouth feel and average carbonation. Overall good brew, unsatisfactory double IPA.
