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.

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!

Amber-orangy color.Out of this world aromas of earl grey tea,peach and caramel.Clean and dry mouthfeel.Earthy tones along with some smoke and hay.I must confess I was really impressed.

Malt: wholesome, earthy, bready, and hay-like, with a little raw cookie dough (sans sugar)... heavy carbonation seems to interrupt the flavors. Hops: crisp and rough, very grassy, wild & a little untamed, and def all over the place! A little perfume-like (musk?) in the aroma. Flowery bitterness was enjoyable. Thought I noticed a hint of peat or smoke, even if they didnít use any. Some citrus notes bursted in here and there, especially further down the glass. While I do love hoppy beers, I tend to favor different hop flavors than I found in this beer. Nonetheless, a decent offering.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2010 Nice and hoppy but not initially bitter - nicely balanced. Does have a bitter after, with citrus. Aroma has hints of dried apricot. Nice foamy head that lasted throughout with lacing. Nice IPA.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Very cloudy with plenty of hop particles floating around the liquid. Pours with a relatively dense head. Aroma is sappy, floral, subtle cocoa?, oxidation, tea-like herbal hops, and musty. Oxidation and heavy carbonation first bombard the mouth. Then comes the hop resin, nuttiness, and caramel malt. Something is definitely funky here . If they dropped the carbonation level and the damn oxidation from their line they would be so much better off. This is a very impressive IPA but with more malt and some help around the edges this would be world-class. It supplies the perfect bitterenss which I seek in such style.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 New formulation is VERY well balanced but not as hoppy. I prefered the hoppier, slightly unbalanced version, though it is still a good beer.

The beer lacks body. The hops are well built, with grassey and an almost lime taste. The after taste is similar to eatting a Mt Hood hop straight. The beer is good, a little too much carbonation, and it is missing something. I guess it would have to be a residual malt flavor to match to hoppiness.
