Vacation 2011 - Seattle and Olympic National Park
8/20/2011: Scuttlebutt Hoptopia Imperial India Pale Ale... Aroma: Frush, juicy citrus, including grapefruit, tangerine, hints of pineapple and mango. Appearance: The color of honey, hazy; nice, bubbly beige head with spotty lacing. Flavor: Toffee maltiness overrun by tons of great hops; ample bitterness that grows throughout: citrus peel, orange, red grapefruit; just a touch of nice alcohol vents in the finish. Palate: Average. Overall: Very tasty!
1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 8% by Vol.). Rating #42 for this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a nice copper color with a short lived off white head. The nose has light tropical hop notes with a bit of citrus zing. The flavor is pretty subdued for a IIPA. There are notes of toasted brown bread, grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Middle of the road for the style, but not offensive in any way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml brown bottle. Golden with haze, creamy white cap with great sticky lacing. Aroma has caramel and orange zest. Taste has heavy caramel malts, toasted malt, orange peel. Citrus and caramel malt aftertaste and light hops, bitterness is a bit restrained. Overall, a decent beer, pleasant but could be a bit more aggressive.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle with no date, and Iím guessing itís past its prime based on the taste. Pours lightly hazy amber (I stopped before pouring all the yeast in) with a decent-sized off-white head. Nose is buttery caramel and toffee with a hint of pine and herbal hopping. MIght have guessed this was a barley wine if I was tasting this blind. Taste is about the same, but with more pine sap and an unpleasant sharp, boozy, grassy hoppiness. Thick and slick in the mouth, resinous. Iím guessing this is a lot better fresh, based on the other reviews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours Amber with a huge foamy head. Slightly over carbonated. The aroma is very nice, notes of Belgian spice and grass. The flavor is peppery above a nice malt base. The hops come through early and often. Lingering after taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Capital Market. Hazy amber in color. Nose is sweet and hoppy. Some sugary sweet notes and sweet hops. Citric hops up front, moving into a bit of a sweet malty flavor. Good hoppiness throughout. Well balanced with a sweet malty thing going on.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Elliott Bay - Pours a translucent but very deep golden orange, with a moderate rocky head. Floral hoppiness, fresh flowers, rosewater, some light alcohol burn. Truly smells like fresh hops dispersed in the glass. Mouthfeel is resiny oils, backed up with sweet caramel toffee maltiness. One of those beers that saves the day
