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.

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"!

Im a hophead myself,and enjoyed this beer. Bieng from canada were we know a good beer when we taste one .Smells a real floral note must be all those cascade hops,well balanced on the sweet to biter.Light amber with a creamy and foamy white head. that didnt stick around long enough to get to know.

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.

Pale yellow color, thick head, creamy head. Nose of fresh cascades and other crisp floral hops. The malts are all but non-existant but the body is light to medium so it holds up a bit more than some IBU intensive beers. Balanced in sweet vs. bitter but not too lively. Iíve had better. Thanks Josh!

Darker gold colour with strong hoppy, pine aroma. Very hoppy flavour, with a bit of a bitter finish. Good stuff.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2005
Clear(ish) amber (i.e, slightly hazy) w/ frothy pale tan foam. Big, hoppy aroma of grapefruit & pine. Juicy, somewhat sticky feel. Well-supported hoppy flavour w/ an assertive, enduring, bitter finish.

Iíve tried others that have claimed to be an IPA...but wow...this is the real deal! A strong pine hop aroma with a powerfull bitter hop taste. This beer left a very noticable hoppy aftertaste. The 5.8 ABV is barely noticable as your tastebuds are overwhelmed with the pine and flowery hop flavor.

Nice dark hue, contrasting well with crown. Aromatic, refreshing powerful hop nose, got a punch. Quiet bitter flavour but more like green leaf bitter than high alpha bitters that got top hoppy ales .Still quiet decent brew.
