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.

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

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.

I’ve 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.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 Hoppy aromas of grapefruit, citrus. Pours a nice copper brown, foamy head. Solid bitterness all the way down. Fairly full bodied. An enjoyable IPA.

Orange-gold colour with a moderate white head. Strong hoppy aroma with some great sweetness around the edges. Flavour is strongly hopped as well, but is well-rounded with some fruity/candy notes in the finish. I could drink a whole lot of these given the chance...

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!

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.
