COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horace ‘Hop’ Wallop headed West a broken man. For it was a certain Miss LuLubelle Lager that had left him, thirsting for more. Drawn by wild tales of the riches of the gold mines, Hop pressed on westward. His last nickel spent on a prospecting pan, Hop’s hunger and thirst got the best of him. Two fistfuls o’ barley and three of some wild and wayward hops tossed in the pan with some clear water was to be his meal. But sleep overcame him and he woke to a bubbling, cacophonous concoction. Overjoyed with the beautiful ale that he had made, Hop realized the secret of the ’green gold’ he had discovered in those fresh hops. Celebrated far and wide, Hop Wallop lives on in this vivid ale with his words, "hoppiness is happiness." As our annual homage to the fresh hop harvest, Hop Wallop is a fragrant experience that delights the tastebuds. Pure gold of color, this ale offers its heady bounty of hops to the adventurous of taste. Bold, bracing and surprisingly refreshing for a strong (8.5% a.b.v.) ale, Hop Wallop lives up to its name and legacy.

From notes. A decent DIPA, but very sweet. Definitely hoppy, very sweet with some floral notes, grass. Retired now, indifferent on the beer.

Golden pilsner like color. Small to no head and little odor, perhaps grainy if any odor at all. Flavor is nice grassy citrus hop flavors with a light subtle effervescent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has notes of flowers, grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits and toasted malts. Medium yellow/amber hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery with a soft carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall a nice IIPA from Victory.

Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits with some faint peppery spice. Taste is initially the same, but the flavors evolve somewhat on the palate. The finish is a nice mellow bitterness.

HipHopOpotamus (228) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014
Tasted at bier bistro in Toronto. A expensive bar in general but it was very expensive on the list, probably because it is hard to ship in. But I enjoyed it, good double IPA.

tcane7 (1657) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Growler pour from the brewpub, courtesy of Andy. Thought this was retired. Pours a clean gold with fluffy white head and webbed lacing. Nose of caramel, citrus and grassy hop. Sweet and caramel-y with a pretty bitter finish. This used to be a favorite of mine when I was first drinking craft beers but I suppose my tastes have changed.

Very good beer from a very good brewery. Nothing really stands out about it to me; still better than a lot of IPAs though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
