COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the Hop Rising IIPA which is different than Squatter’s Hop Rising Pale Ale which is no longer being produced.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Orange liqueur, melon and tinned peach aroma with plenty of alcohol, and hints of wine gums, Darjeeling and honey. Dusty copper with a slender magnolia head. Slick, slightly hot and grapefruity with a streak of softer, tropical Fruit Salad hop and leafy Darjeeling. Honeyed, floral..but somewhat booze-laden and charmless, without the brilliant hop freshness of some of the paler, lower ABV US beers I’ve had this week.

smith4498 (3112) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours clear copper color with creamy light tan head. Citrus hop aroma with some alcohol. Boozy and bready flavor with some hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Craig.

wedgie9 (2223) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Tasted from a 12oz bottle obtained in a trade. Pours hazy intense orange with an average white head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is orange peel with bread malt and a hint of banana and bitter hops. The flavor is just as the nose would suggest with orange and bread with the hops taking over the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter hops and caramel orange finish.

Zeswaft (1422) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Fuller body and boozier version of the regular IPA. same flavor and aroma. gets an extra point for being stronger

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle. Great label! Copper orange color. Moderate white head. Moderate piny citrus aroma. Thick sweet malt with sharp hop bitterness. Doesn’t seen very balanced. Medium body.

kramer (5171) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear bright copper body with a beautiful tight bubbled foamy off-white head. The nose is well balanced between a boatload of resiny and citrusy hops and a heavy caramel malt base. The flavor is intensely bitter and resiny up front with the big maltiness pushing through towards the finish. Lingering citrusy hops with some noticeable alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with nice fizzy carbonation that helps cut the body well. Pretty nice IIPA.

SandK (44) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Pours hazy golden color with a substantial off-white head. Nice bitterness is tempered with notes of pine and herbs. A brew worth revisiting. K-2.7 S-3.5

Flamebuster (24) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Pours amber with a big creamy head. Aroma of citrus and the first taste was intense. Overall, not my kind of beer, just a bit over the top with the continued bombardment of bitter citrus.

joshuahfl (47) - California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle from Squatters at the airport. Pours a deep amber with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus aroma with some caramel malt. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, some spice and roasted malt. Bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium carbonation. Slightly slick texture. Overall a tasty DIPA.

cstuartj (1015) - Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Yellow orange with a touch of red in color. Prefect white head. Nose is hops and citrus and grass. Very bitter hop taste that lasts and lasts.
