COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The HopHead is an extremely hoppy and flavourful beer, reminiscent of many American IPAs. The HopHead has a nice full body and mouthfeel, without the hoppiness being too overpowering. A fine ale all around.

341ml bottle. Pours amber high clarity, thick off white head. Aromas of citrus, such as, orange and orange peel, hint of caramel. Taste of orange peel, bit grassy. Tastes a bit on the watery side, it?s a decent session ale however.

This time, out of a bottle. One of the first ipa's I ever had. Holds up with its balanced aroma of citrus, pine, and caramel. Bitter taste with slight sweetness. A reliable ipa from BC's interior.

Draught @ St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, BC

Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, malts, resinous hops, pine, citrus. Taste is malty and refreshing fruity hoppy with some citrus, resin and pine. Finish is bitter, malty and sweet with loads of fruity notes. Quite sweet and resinous IPA.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Tree does a bang on IPA. It tastes like it comes straight from a tree with all the earthy, spruce like flavours. It has a great amount of malt balance in there as well with bready caramel. A good medium mouth feel too, with no face puckering bitterness.

Stirls (1) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014 does not count
A well balance IPA. Good grassy notes on the nose. A slight citrus flavour in the body and a dry finish. A very refreshing west coast IPA without being too hoppy

Clear amber pour with a thick white head that does not last long. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Fairly hoppy taste with some caramel and grains. Fairly light mouth feel, overall quite nice.

A really nicely done IPA from beautiful Kelowna BC, purchased in a 355mL bottle from the Ontario LCBO. Lots of hoppy grapefruit in the aroma. A small head that disappears daily quickly. Nice lacing. On the palate there's some fruit amidst modest carbonation. Long pleasant finish. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pretty good IPA, quite hoppy, though not as hoppy as others seem to think.
