COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops Infusion exhibits deep malt characteristics- this beer has undeniable character and body. Glowing a deep amber color, Hops Infusion is brewed with seven types of hops. The result is unmistakable-- hop-heavenly flavor with earthy, spicy, sharp citrus notes. Hops Infusion has four times the dry-hopping as our already hoppy IPA.

surprising malt balance for a super-hopped beer

Had a slighty sour smell, but otherwise very tasty and refreshing. Not as spicy as something with 4x the hops of an IPA, but better than some that is for sure. Didnít dig the Jetsonsí style label, but it did draw my attention.

For so much hops it was amazingly easy and refreshing to drink. So floral and fresh. I want another!

UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 Piney resins are injected into caramelized apples, creating a balanced quaffer of an IPAÖEarthy hoppiness develops good bitterness and plenty of leafy angles...There is nothing special here, but itís a pleasant hoppy quencher nonetheless...

Yeah this suckerís got hops. Definitely not a session beer, but a delightful way to break up any monotony you might be feeling in your beer regimen.

íHops Infusion has four times the dry-hopping as our already hoppy IPA.í Really? Must be a candy ass IPA then. While this does have a solid earthy, grassy and straw-like hop aroma, it is nowhere near what I expected from the description given on the label. Hop flavor is nothing short of full, but seems schizophrenic. Earthy, grassy, citric and every other hop descriptor you can imagine in here. Malt? Yes, but not to balance. No worries though, as hops are meant to be the stars. Copper color with a medium head. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Deep golden that hinges on amber. Decent head and lace. Nose of malts and spicy hop thats making my mouth water. Full bodied,carlamel like malt sitting in the backround,a bit musty, a BARRAGE of hops, very earthy at first, citrusy and then piney, resin sticks with you, burns throat and chest and its a joy to drink. I dont think Ive had anything hoppier. A bit oxidized maybe but this is a nice creation. Stay away if your a candyass.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 Weyerbacher Brewing Co. is the best thing that ever happened to Easton... with the possible exception of Sheena. Hop Heads rejoice.

Hop Burn. Thatís what I feel in the back of my throat. Itís right up there with Dogfish 90 Minute IPA as one of the most-hopped brews Iíve ever had. Balanced? Hell no! But itís not supposed to be. A spicey, burning sensation.

Citrus/floral aroma - medium orange color. Tastes clean & balanced , although I expected more hop presence. I think Hop Devil has spoiled me!
