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.

My current favourite beer! This sample a 12 oz bottlle. part of the search for the "Best BC IPA". Light amber with rocky white head, excellent lacing. Medium bodied, average carbonation, very clean finish.

A well balance IPA. Good grassy notes on the nose. A slight citrus flavour in the body and a dry finish. A very refreshing west coast IPA without being too hoppy

Clear amber pour with a thick white head that does not last long. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Fairly hoppy taste with some caramel and grains. Fairly light mouth feel, overall quite nice.

A really nicely done IPA from beautiful Kelowna BC, purchased in a 355mL bottle from the Ontario LCBO. Lots of hoppy grapefruit in the aroma. A small head that disappears daily quickly. Nice lacing. On the palate there's some fruit amidst modest carbonation. Long pleasant finish. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pretty good IPA, quite hoppy, though not as hoppy as others seem to think.

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Slightly hazy, orange to light amber colour with thick, off-white head. Aroma of pine, orange, grapefruit and some caramel. Medium to full body, average carbonation, medium bitterness. Easy drinkable and refreshing with nice hoppy caracter.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
On draught at Christie’s, Victoria. Deep amber/light copper with slight white head. Nose is citrus and pine. Flavour is piney, orange, hop petrol/cat piss, bitter, dry finish. A bitter-forward IPA rather than aroma-forward, and though I prefer the latter this was good for what it is. They claim in the product description "without the hoppiness being too overpowering" but I definitely found it more bitter than most for non-imperial IPAs... the style may have shifted towards aromas since this was first brewed.

sudomorph (381) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper colour with a fluffy, two and a half finger off-white head that thins to a film and clings all over the glass. Aroma a bit floral with notes of bready malt, pine, and hints of citrus fruit. Taste is a balanced bitter with a smooth aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Smooth, slightly slick, mouth feel but still pretty clean and refreshing. Overall pretty good. Has a solid malt backbone to stand up to the hops. Lots of flavour and a good mouth feel. Not the hoppiest beer but still good. Would buy again for sure to change it up.

andrewthfcmuir (32) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
Amber color with off white head that disappears relatively quickly. Aroma of bold floral with some less prominent citrus hops, some pine in there as well. As expected, the taste is nicely bitter, and certainly characterizes the beer. A very nice IPA, If your in the area, it’s certainly worth a try.

Good okanogan beer. Go Canada, great hopping and aroma. Good colour and legs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
