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.

Quite pale orange-amber; fluffy cream-white head. Hops, hops, gorgeous hops... Hopsacks, sweet cookies, raisins - and some cardboard ending in a real lemony nose. Hoppy, but not at all bitter taste, quite some sweetness, again cookie or cake taste. Lemongrass and lemonbalm flavours. Slight burning MF, but light body. Hopstaste gets metallic without bittering effect in the aftertaste. It is a bit simplistic, not quite balanced. OK, but certainly not "one of the most innovative beers in the micro-brewing industry" as they claim themselves. Thanks, Poperinge.

Boutip (5001) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a medium foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma of cascade hops is clearly present with a nice touch of citrus. Taste is also characterized by cascade hops with a clear citrus touch and a quite bitter finish. Body is above average and carbonation is a bit low. Interesting take on the style.

Very good, outstanding first round at a Commerical Street pub, Vancouver. Over this, started talking about Canadian politics with travelling Ontario kids.

Pours from the bottle a copper colour with bubbly head that thins. All hops baby, an astringent smell though not unpleasing. Tastes like youíre chewing on a hop leaf. Iím assuming this is a good example of Cascade flavour (and maybe Golding?)

Bottle at Bar Volo. Pours a hazy orange with a an average frothy white head. Aroma of citrus with moderate to heavy hops -- smells great! Flavour is heavy on the bitterness and palate is soft on the carbonation. I love hoppy IPAís and this one is nice and hoppy. One of my favourite beers. I try to get one every time I go to Volo.

Thank you Josh! A deep Golden color with a frothy off-white head. Fairly strong pine oily hop aroma without being overpowering. Initial hop jab with a doughy middle and a potent bitter hop follow. There is a sweetness to this beer if you can dig it out from under the hops! Man, Iím getting addicted to these Cascade laden brews! "Hi, Iím Dan and Iím a hopaholic"!

Light amber with a creamy and foamy white head. There are big spots of lacing. Fresh hops in the nose. Bitter and citurs with some pine and floral notes. Some malt backing. Caramel malt in the flavor with some bitter notes. Grapefruit citrus. Light body, slightly watery. Ends more malty than hoppy.
