COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopluia uses a rare method of dry hopping that works in the secondary fermentation and is brewed with two different yeast strains. The result is a hoppy beer of immense taste.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Solid orange with thin head. Hoppy-sweet aroma Ö flavor is hoppy, yet candied malt-based. Odd, but somehow good. Bit flat to keep it from really good.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2006
16oz can via trade with eboats - Pours amber slightly cloudy with a fair offwhite head that stayed well and laced the sides of the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple and faint caramel malts. Taste begins with light caramel malts but then grapefruit and pine flavors come through. Finishes bitter and almost sour citrus. Palate is quite carbonated and a little unbalanced. This was pretty good for something out of a can but overall a little average..

Thanks to EBOATS! Poured a very thick amber with a fizzy and creamy head. Nose was grapefruit man. Very sticky nose, hops, hops, hops. Wow, taste is very light compared to the nose. This is fruity-hoppy dry and a bit bitter. Out of a can, great experience.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of oranges, as well as some hops, alfa acids, and cardboard, leading to a bitter end. The body is somewhat thin.

Really cool green can. This has a good "c" hop aroma, but the flavor fails to follow up with anything close. The flavor ends up being a bit thin and bland, which is a shame given that aroma.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2009
I had this on tap and in the bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet hop aromas and heavy balancing caramel malt flavor. Interesting brew, but average.

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Soft good brew.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Clear reddish orange with a quickly dying head. Aroma is metallic (from the can!) and slightly hoppy. Taste has moderate hops, which seem to fair better in the dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied. Aside from the slight metallics this is ok. Iíd still take Daleís Pale Ale from the can over this though.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Burnt copper color with respectable, frothy head - promising aroma of resinous hops, pine, and background malts and fruity esters (strawberry mostly) - this is the first beer Iíve had from a can in a while, and Iím reminded why now - a metallic taste runs from beginning to finish, crushing the otherwise promising flavors of bready malts, lighty fruitiness and moderate hop profile - medium bodied, with a watery finish - this would probably be much better if it were bottled.
