11.2 oz bottle. Pours to a hazy golden color, with a tall, soapy, white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic. In fact when I opened the bottle, hop aromas literally hit me from a foot away. Very fragrant, herbal/grassy hops flood the nose with some estery fruity aroma, and spicy yeast. The palate is firm, with really good pale/biscuity malt flavor, with some estery fruit flavor, and light notes of funky yeast flavor. This beer finishes with more good biscuity malt up front, then ends with a yeasty and grassy hop bite that lingers. Outstanding beer. This beer is 80 IBU and 9.5% abv, and is amazingly refreshing and drinkable for a beer so strong and with such bitterness. The ultimate aperitif beer, or after drink cocktail. I loved this one.

Bottle, good ale, very drinkable. Hoppy, malty, bready aroma. Light golden color with white head. A few floaties. Good strong hops flavor is balanced with sweetish malt with a fruity quality. Creamy and smooth. Very good.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Wow, really enjoyed this one. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a fluffy white, lasting head. Aroma is fragrant hops and Belgian yeast. Well balanced flavors with a good dose of hops and fruity esters as well. Malt backing and a dry finish made this a very enjoyable and intoxicating brew. Recommended!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Draft at the Green Leafe Williamsburg: Bright golden with a gluey white head. Spicy on the edges with an undertow of hoppiness. Doesn’t come off quite right, but a fun experiment. Re-rated from a corked/caged bottle on 4/15/2007: Poured 100% white foam head and still erupted from the bottle for a while. Aroma is oddly like smoked sausage. Drinking thru the whipped cream head, I get the same basic impression as before; like a Belgian golden ale with an addition of American style hops. I’m upping my rating a bit ... this is good stuff.

Very interesting beer, but not my cup of tea for sure. The Hop It! pours out a very light yellow color with a monster head. The aroma is full of flowery hops and corainder. The palate is full and creamy. Flavors are of herbal lemon, hops and coriander. A little too confusing for my palate.
