COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Suplex Ale 10% ABV Our 10% ABV Imperial IPA brewed with honey. The pleasant orange color of this beer accompanies classic American hop aromas of pine needles and freshly sliced grapefruit. Suplex has subtle hints of honey with a mouthful of hop flavor. As this medium bodied beer warms the orange blossom honey flavors become noticeable. The beer rounds out with a warm yet pleasant bitter finish. Best served at cellar temperatures.

jgb9348 (5322) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Rich copper coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, pine, resin, grass, grapefruit and a touch of yeast mixed with bread. Full-bodied; Piney flavour with some grapefruit and herbal notes right behind. Metal, alcohol, dry oak and some white grapes then dominate with the alcohol the strongest. Aftertaste shows a very dry, herbal, grassy finish with a ton of hop bitterness, quite a bit of alcohol warmth and a herbal flavour that shows just about no sweetness at all. Overall, a pungent and long-lasting Imperial IPA with perhaps a touch too much alcohol and metal notes and not enough sweetness and complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 05-July-2015 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 03-November-2015.

Pleasant color of orange/brown. Aroma of hop, honey, malt, spice, yeast and grapefruit. The flavor is absolutely honey and hop. Not too bitter for a IIPA, malt and earth complexion. Mild fruit component. Okay stuff.
