COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Centric is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. This one is a real hop blast, dripping with the resiny soul of fresh Northwest hops. Donít come crying to us if itís too much for you; this oneís for hopheads only! And get it now, cause when itís gone, itís gone. Boo hoo. 22.7 Plato 100.1 IBU

mansquito (3576) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($4): Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, toffee. Taste is rather hoppy, but is actually well-balanced against the fairly hefty malt backbone. This is somewhat sweet. Not really bitter, but more of a tropical fruity fruit basket. Medium bodied. Pleasant to drink.

rxeight (1523) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Had this last year when fresh, previously called hop juice, same logo. One of the more dissapointing double ipas. Not really sure what they were doing here. Bitter but no realy hop flavors coming through.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Smooth, rich, creamy body of sweet candied apple, orange peel and cane sugar, gaining complex undertones of toffee throughout a heavy backbone of crisp, fresh hops that arenít as overpowering as the name suggests. Balanced well for the huge abv, lingering on a creamy malt and intense hop note. Surprisingly sweet.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle from The Deli Lama. Pours a clear orangey copper with an orange head leaving some lace. Aroma has biscuits, sweet and sour fruits and citrus. Taste is of sweet fruits, citrus, toffee and bread. But in a muddle. No clear flavor and no tasty one. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes sweet & sour and a bit short. Huh. Not sure what they were doing or what they did here. No age on the bottle, perhaps that is the issue?

Ericular (686) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with good head and lacing. Aroma is malty with some resiny hops and alcohol. Taste is malt-forward, with sweet candi sugar, then some resin and very noticeable alcohol. Not "for hopheads only", and not very "hop centric". A bit disappointing for a double IPA. Itís decent, though.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle share by Bob, golden orange pour with thin white head. Aroma of pine and light citrus, bit of alcohol. Taste is similar, not bad from these guys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Amber to red color, mostly clear. Thick, off white head, good lacing. Aromaís: sweet malts, fruit, some resin, flowery. Extra sweetness retronasal (caramel, toffee), but also citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet, a bit salmiak-drop, somewhat bitter. Pretty strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Flowery/herbal finish with medium bitterness. Quite nice, but not spectacular.
