3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Hazy orange gold with white head. This certainly does pack a bit of a hop wallop, right from the off, citric, grapefruit, drying and fruity. The beer is surprisingly light given the hops and alcohol levels, nice and easy to drink. Hoppiness is certainly happiness and this delivers quite well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hop wallop pours a deep yellow almost lager type body with plenty of carbonation and a thin head that left lots of heavy lace. Aroma had a few different things in it like pine, citrus and almost some floral notes, but all were rather faint. Mouthfeel was nice with a slight thickness and carbonation bite. The flavor left a little to be desired, the pine flavor bordered on skunky with a bitter finish, it wasnt bad but kinda unusual. Even though the taste was a little off i wouldn’t mind trying it again in the future. Originally rated on 11/19/08

Pours clear blonde with a modest white head. nose is the usual suspects of West Coast hops and a little sweetness. hops come on fairly strong on the front with good bitterness and some grapefruit. malt is very sweet. finish is better and somewhat sticky.

Pours a nice clear, gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells like pine and hops. Tastes very hop forward and finishes less bitter than I thought it would. Good beer, but nothing crazy.

Hop wallop is a cool story and this golden beer is alot of fun. This beer is bold and adventures. Not a late bloomer. Great aroma.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(from notes) - served in pint glass
A - hazy yellow/orange capped with medium eggshell head. Head has modest retention. Ample, fine carbonation.
Aroma of citrus hops and malt. Mild aroma for style and taste.
T - "Hop Wallop"? Yes, but amply tempered with a generous load of caramel malt. Has bitter (lemony grapefruit) hop finish and aftertaste true to style. Pronounced citrus and pine notes to hops.
M - brisk and a bit tingly; medium body;
D - a good sipper, although I notice it is disappearing rather quickly; a good session beer too, but watch out for that 8.5% ABV which is not obvious via aroma or taste.
