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.

355 ml bottle. (5.6% ABV) Pours a hazy copper with a medium, off-white head that laces. Sweet, hoppy aroma of citrus, caramel malt and grass. Sweet, fruity flavour of grapefruit, caramel malt, mild resin and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy pale to medium amber with a short, short-lived light beige head, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine, citrus, caramel malt, slightly flowery. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a decent A/IPA. Good balance between hoppiness and maltiness: the malt is quite pronounced, but definitely in a supporting role, and the flavour remains hop-forward. Quite nice. (15/20)

Nicky balanced IPA. Light copper in colour, off white head. Plenty of hops but not over powering. 5.7 percent so not too strong that you could not enjoy it as a session beer.

Transparent copper brown. Good head retention. Caramel, malt, hop, and pine aroma. Quite creamy and smooth. Mid bodied. Initial taste is smooth caramel malt and the finish is mildly bitter hop and pine. Extremely smooth and refreshing IPA.

ENG: 330ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip, golden color with some little bit of haze, almost unnoticeable, medium tan head which quickly disappears. Nice hoppy aromas of pine and citrus, maybe a bit soury too. Tastes mildly citrusy-hoppy: lime, grapefruit; and floral. Mild caramel flavors too. Delicate piney hoppy bitter in the aftertaste. Balanced taste overall, medium carbonation, the mouthfeel is light, it’s also easy drinkable and refreshing.
PL: Butelka 330ml z Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka, złocista barwa z niewielkimi drobinkami, średnia jasna piana, która niestety szybko zanika. Przyjemne aromaty chmielowe - żywiczne i cytrusowe, może nieco kwasowości w tle. Smakuje umiarkowanie chmielowo-cytrusowo: limonka, grejfrut, a także kwiatowo. W tle smaki karmelowe. W posmaku delikatnie chmielowo-żywiczna goryczka. Podsumowując smak dość zbalansowany, łagodny, średnie nasycenie i lekkie odczucie w ustach, łatwo pijalne i orzeźwiające.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (thanks cards04). Looks solid; malty though. A slightly hazy pale bronze with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; on the maltier side with some caramel, but balanced nicely alongside a piney and bitter hop profile. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. A solid IPA.

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.
