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.

Poured a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt with citrus and earth traveling underneath. Hoppy citrus flavor that goes the length with a very long dry bitter finish.

A very dry IPA. Amazingly dry. Makes me want a glass of water. Grassy, and did I say hoppy.

A good IPA, hopping rate is asertive but not as heavy as some other Pac-NW examples. Nice amber color and good head. As commercial deScription indicates an American IPA who’s hops are not spit out over the top! I was expecting something like HOP Rod RyePA A good drinker.

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 (5266) - 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 you’re chewing on a hop leaf. I’m 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 IPA’s and this one is nice and hoppy. One of my favourite beers. I try to get one every time I go to Volo.
