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 ale, Hop Wallop lives up to its name and legacy.

harrisoni (17164) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2008
Twickenham Brewery tasting 08. Clear gold, thin white head. Thanks to some decent hops. It’s fine. But a bit metallic. It’s ok, a little disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (16809) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 7, 2012
Herb-hopfiger Beginn mit zunehmender Trockenheit. Deutlich bitter ab dem Mittelteil, im Abgang steigert sich dies nochmal. Ebenfalls recht malzig, etwas klebrig und dickflüssig wirkend. Herber, sandig, 8/9/9/9/11/9

Theydon_Bois (16670) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - May’12. Pours a slightly murky gold with a half finger of white head. Floral and fruity hops on the nose, a little sweet malt and a puff of herbs. Hops up front in the taste but well balanced with caramel malts. Tropical fruits can be detected, mango and orange. Medium bodied with a light/medium carbonation with a bitter finish. Better on cask (for which I hold no review) but a good all round DIPA.

Beerhunter111 (16477) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig herb, fruchtig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack stark malzig bitter, fruchtig herb, minimal würzig.

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2009
Bottled (CK, BB 10/2009). Slightly hazy golden-orange color, good creamy off-white head. Strong aroma of pine, grapefruit and cat piss. Very hop juicy with loads of pine, grapefruit and other fruity flavors. Medium-bodied, not extremely malty, so actually drinkability is quite ok. Also hides alcohol very well. Good beer, but maybe a bit boring, I would not drink this very often.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
It’s about time I got a crack at this one! Golden amber colour. Zesty citrus hops and dark malts. Hoppy flavour, surprsingly lean body. Evenly balanced and with floral hoppiness. My type of Imperial IPA.
