COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Viridis Lupulus is a celebration of the renewal of spring. This will be a new seasonal, being released in spring / early summer each year. Each brew will feature a different selection of hops from year to year. Viridis Lupulus is an unfiltered golden-copper IPA with an aggressive hop profile. Massive amounts of Apollo, Calypso, Centennial, and Galaxy hops fill this beer with dank citrus and tropical aromas. The bottle-conditioning will propel the aromas out of your glass and create a tight, fluffy head. This beer is a pure hop experience!

Bottle. Strong grapefruit aroma. F**k!! Really bittery. Cant feel almost nothing but the hops but still a bit sweet. Not my fav. Style but good beer.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Corked and caged 750mL bottle. Nose is hoppy, very green and dusty, fruity with citrus and faint caramel, but really reminds of a green addition just added to the boil. Pours dark amber actually leaning a bit to brown, kinda ugly, but a dense and rocky beige head redeems the package. Taste is medium-strong bitter to balance medium-strong sweetness, light warmth but not hot or burning, dark swirls of earth and caramel, piny hop, general woodenness. Fruity, lightly floral and strongly herbal, even more earth, lightly oily, stronger resins, this one reminds of a PNW old growth forest instead of a Caribbean beach. Medium body fuller at first but sags with time, watches the impact of the alcohol grow to surpass even the hops. Malt seems relatively sturdy, though. Just not for this price.

BBB63 (5940) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle and served in one of my Weyerbacher pint glasses: Hazy golden with a HUGE over carbonated head and lots of lacing. Juicy and moderately leafy bitter with a nice malt counterpoint. Dry and metallic finish. The mouth feel is lively for sure... too much (see above). Overall I enjoyed this and this bottle is fresher than the first I had... still I would love one that is only a few weeks old.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle sample at the Weyerbacher tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 6/12/14. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt, spicy hop and pepper. Malty and sweet flavor with peppery character before a spicy hop finish. I think this has been sitting for a bit.

closey22 (782) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Cloudy dark amber with thick foamy beige head; aroma is mildly hoppy; flavor is robust hops in your face! feels medium to thick foamy + chewy with some fizz backbone; finishes dry and slightly bitter, more of a roasty hoppy flavor

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy dark amber-toffee color with an enormous creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was bitter and tart pine, grapefruit, lemon, honey and bread dough. The flavor was dry, tart and a bit chalky with notes of lemon, grapefruit, sour caramel and leather. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2014
From a bomber. Pours opaque orange copper with a foamy, frothy off white head. Tastes like strong hops, strong malt, strong orange citrus. Sweet, dry feel, but medium body and carbonation. Smells like malty, nutty, orange, sweet hops, and malt.

sonnycheeba (3295) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, faint caramel, floral and grassy notes, lemon zest, and light orange peel. Flavor is grassy and pine hop bitterness forward with biscuit malt base and some grapefruit esters; dry finish with some lingering bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.

glennmastrange (2205) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, light to moderate herbs and pine for the hops, dough for the yeast, with a hint of coriander. Head is average to large, frothy, off-white with some darker swirls, has good lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky medium amber/orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation. A little too malt forward for a true to style DIPA but it’s full of flavors and is very easy to drinking.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Vintage 2013. Hazy orange copper pour with good white head. Slightly stinky Orange citrus and forest pine aroma and flavor. Subtle notes of honey and caramel malt. A little hop sweetness up front, but Very bitter on the tail. Not amazing, but not certainly drinkable.
