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.

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 didn’t 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.

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 (2435) - 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.

Very hoppy, you can identify the hops in the aroma, the flavor, the aftertaste, etc., very sharp flavor & taste, a bit spicy, some orange-type undertones, very bitter, but also very very good

My bottle sample foamed up on opening after being refrigerated quietly for several days. I tried a second bottle from the same six pack and another foam up. Managed to catch most of the beer in my glass. Initially there was about a two inch head consisting of big bubbles and flecks of material in it (hops? yeast?). The head fell down to a half inch in three minutes but maintained a cotton candy consistency. First sip.... are those hop petals stuck between my teeth ;-) Very hoppy is an understatement. I love hops but this may not have enough malt body to pull this off. Residual bitterness on the palate is pleasing though.

one of the best aromas around. big floral spicy hops that rise up from the glass and slap you in the face. the taste lives up to the nose with a big hop palate that is moderated by some pleasant malt sweetness. has a nice bitter aftertaste. moderate carbonation gives this a smooth palate.

WARNING: make sure you take several good whiffs of this beer prior to attempting it. Seriously atomic hops!The aroma is like sticking your nose into a bag of hop pellets! And the flavor of hops smacks your taste buds like school bully laying out the class nerd. As the beer warms up it smooths out (relatively speaking) and develops an oily mouthfeel. Their label boasts that they have 4X the hops of their IPA and they’re not shittin’ you! This may be the perfect complement for VENOM’s Chili recipe. MMM chili.
