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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, - NOV 19, 2012
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur cuivrée et semi-voilée. Nez de houblon floral, citrique, moyennement herbeux et aux faibles notes résineuses, de céréales sucrées, moyen de fruits (agrumes), léger de caramel aux notes rôties ainsi qu’avec des notes de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon floral et citrique (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) et accompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de céréales sucrées et aux faibles notes rôties et terreuses ainsi qu’un moyen goût de caramel avec des notes de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume reprend de l’ampleur en se montrant plus asséchante et plus herbeuse. Post-goût long et un peu sec, amer de houblon floral, herbeux et citrique avec un léger goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).

plaugher (205) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
12oz bottle into an English pint. Clear amber pour with a thick white fluffy head. Light flowery nose with a bit of orange and caramel; not an overwhelming hop-bomb. Light orangey sweetness, mild bitter finish. A laid-back IPA.

My favorite beer in the world. I wish it was available where I live. I can't wait to visit BC soon so I can enjoy it again. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

RichardW (1551) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
On tap in Banff. Well balanced amber-red IPA. Not a hop monster, more a well balanced slightly fruity & citrusy beer, with a fine biscuity taste. Good bitterness, lasting finish

vadie (806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Ambré avec un tête moyen beige. L?arôme fort d?agrumes (beaucoup de pamplemousse). Le goût à plein d?agrumes et pas mal amer dans la finale. Il a plein du corps, une bonne bière pour savourer.

JesseMartineau (87) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours amber high clarity, thick off white head. Aromas of citrus, such as, orange and orange peel, hint of caramel. Taste of orange peel, bit grassy. Tastes a bit on the watery side, it?s a decent session ale however.

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
This time, out of a bottle. One of the first ipa's I ever had. Holds up with its balanced aroma of citrus, pine, and caramel. Bitter taste with slight sweetness. A reliable ipa from BC's interior.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Draught @ St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, BC

Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, malts, resinous hops, pine, citrus. Taste is malty and refreshing fruity hoppy with some citrus, resin and pine. Finish is bitter, malty and sweet with loads of fruity notes. Quite sweet and resinous IPA.
