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.

Thanks Doug! Yellow straw coloured body with minimal white head, and a slight lacing left on glass. Very hoppy aroma, almost burns the nose, and also sourness present. Taste slightly fruity, and bitter hops all the way. Leaves strong lingering bitterness, slight grape aftertaste. Not that bad!

MrManning (1982) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2005
Thanks Doug! Gold sparkling body, white head with lots of froth. Strong hop aroma. Aromas of boiling pasta, and sweet candy. Taste is bitter out the ass. Sweet hoppy bitterness. Grassy, herbal, taste is like a pine cone. Bitter, watery finish. Candy aftertaste.

Big orange hops aroma, piney too. Orange, pours a tight finger of off-white foam. Full throttle hops taste, from the west coast hops, some appreciated malt afterwards. Medium bodied, quite zingy from those hops, but well balanced. Terrific!

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
Pours light amber with a little white modest lacing head. Aroma and flavours are very aggresive in hops for a Canadian product. Also some caramel and pine. Flavours are very fresh and green in general. Lots of bite from the hop, balanced with an almost mossy earth. Cedar, burnt sugar. Clean toasty dry hopped finish.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Bottle, delivered fresh from Vancouver BC today! Pours clear orangey amber with a gorgeous fluffy beige head that lingers welll and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet caramelly malts with dominant citrus and piney hops. Flavor is quite good, malty backbone, a rush of grapefruit hops and a lingering dry finish. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Quite nice IPA!

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2004
This one is a brilliant hoppy mess! Orange pour with a thick head. There’s some nice bitters and caramels here as well with a touch of spice. When in the okanagan make sure this one is a absolute must try!

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Bottle) A tanish head with an orange amber hue. Nice hop aroma with good bitterness up front with some malt coming through. abit of a offish spice flavor but very slight. The best canadian ipa that I have had.
