COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Suplex is juiced with six different hop varieties in the brew kettle and our slow, heavy weight dry-hop additions added by HopfenKubel. Hop Suplex Ale features Saucony’s widest range of hop varieties and our most complex hopping schedule. Hop Suplex weighs in at 10% ABV compliments of a hefty grain bill, but a dose of honey balances the flavor and compliments the floral and strong citrus tones of grapefruit, melon, and gooseberry provided from our favorite selection of hops

On nitro. Hop aromas of pine and citrus, somewhat tropical. Nicely balanced, the nitro really brings forward the malt structure. Medium bodied, creamy smooth.

MadRobin (2121) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 5, 2014
On nitro at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Lightly hazy, amber with a large, creamy off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus and even more pine. Taste of pine, caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. Lots of bitter hops ,yet the malt makes its presence clear. Medium/full body and low/medium carbonization. Fizzier than you'd expect for a nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice big hop taste with a sweet honey malt that raises the booze. Excellent.

Bought this one for the amazing label. Poured a cloudy copper color with chunks floating around in it and a white head. Malty aroma with pine. Flavor starts out caramel malt with a sweet citrusy middle and finishing off with a pine bitterness.

$2.45 bottle, Wine Warehouse. Hazy amber-brown, giant beige head. Waxy white chunks pour out. Smells of pine, soap, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. Taste... ooo... passion fruit, pine, roasted nuts, orange.

Drake (9264) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a slight hazy amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus and tropical hops, toasted malt, latex, dirty garbage. The taste is caramel malt, citrus, spicy hops. Overly bitter, astringent. Medium bodied. Train wreck.

jmm635 (892) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Orange in color, lively bubbles, with a small white head that lasts. Aroma of hops, citrus, melons, and sugar. Flavor is pretty sweet with a strong alcohol burn in the finish. Also, that label art is terrible. I would have never purchased if not for the fact this was in a mixed case.

Bottle. Good hoppy beer all around. Medium body, bitter finish, dark gold color.
