COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We craft this much like a sculptor who uses only a hammer and chisel to shape stone into a masterpiece. Hoppe is spawned of these few essentials: barley, wheat, hops, yeast and water. This limited palette is an exercise in minimalism, with refined elements which are deliberately selected. This simple combination creates a golden shimmering brew infused with delicate aromas. The artful nature of this beer is exposed with the first taste. As the malt and hops created a composition of flavors, and elegant finish leaves an impression that your tastes will not soon forget. Don’t be deceived by th innocence of Hoppe. Please enjoy in moderation.

Pours a clear medium-gold with a white head and lacing. The aroma is mainly malty, with some hops and yeast too. The flavor is a balance of hops and malt, with a bit of wheat and a sweet, almost honey, aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (2003) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a 1 finger, soapy white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is caramel, biscuit, syrupy sweet malt, booze and citrus. Flavor is toast, bisguit, light nuttiness, syrupy sweetness, lots of alcohol, spicy and citrus hops. Palate is creamy and slightly syrupy on entry, has a light, but sharp carbonation and slick, but syrupy finish. The hop profile is pretty decent on this one, but it is far to sweet and syrupy and the booziness is way out of balance with the rest of the beer, it drinks more like 11-12% than 8%abv.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Jetson! Thanks bro! Fairly hazy, golden orange appearance with a small, cream colored head. Tangy, orange citrusy, very rich malty albeit a bit boozy aroma. Very rich, sweet, somewhat toasty malty, somewhat bitter, tangy flavor. This one may have some age on it- who knows.

Bottle at Håndverkerstuene in Oslo, Norway. Lovely hazy yellow colour with a white head. Alcohol are very rich, disturbing and unpleasant in both aroma and flavour.

TheGB (515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Pours a light amber with a thin 1/4" head. Light aroma of floral hops. Medium bodied, with a smooth palate of hops, lychee fruit and some citrus. Well balance, but not all that interesting.

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle into snifter. Pour is golden orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is like orange cream soda and a sweet vanilla and caramel. Very floral and aromatic citrus hops. Nice. Taste is similar with a nice bitter finish. Very smooth vanilla undertones bring out and accent the citrusy hops. Good stuff yet again from Southern Tier.

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with yellowish hues. Frothy off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, caramel? with some hop bitterness for good measure. Taste is sweet, bready, slight vanilla and citrus notes. Mouthy on the tongue. Good extra IPA!!!

mansquito (3555) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Whole Foods, P St, DC bomber ($7): Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is rather malty, and pretty hoppy; much like an IIPA for the most part. Taste is a little bit sweet. The hops are somewhat bitter, but leave surprisingly little aftertaste. Some astringency. There is another taste there that I can’t quite place. Pretty good, but nothing excessively innovative or unique.
