COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with blood orange puree and fresh grapefruit zest, this beer is unlike any other. The richness of blood orange pairs nicely with the tart flavor of grapefruit and hops. We dry-hopped this beer Amarillo and other top secret hops. Why the name Hop Burglar? Level 5 clearance required for this information.

Tap at the brewpub. This beer was ridiculous. It smells and tasted like oranges, grapefruit, and mangos. It is so good and probably just became one of my favorite IPas. Bought a growler to go of it and that did not last long either. Rumor is they will begin to bottle this in 2015, and I cannot wait. Crazy good beer.

Sample @ Wicked Weed during RBWG, Asheville. Deep golden amber with a small head. Really nice and vibrant citrus hoppy notes. Orange peel. Light pale malt body supports a fresh orange flavor and some dank herbal hops. Medium body, active carbonation. Great.

Asheville, NC - on tap at Wicked Weed. Pour is a hazy medium orange slight white head. Solid resiny spruce-like aroma with a hint of mint. Flavor has a nice grapefruit zest to it, with a bit of malty caramel sweetness, a touch of mint,. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Very solid - like everything else at this brewpub.

Everything I want from an IPA. Big bold flavors from the hops with a mix of orange and grapefruit.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Reddish tinted amber. Aroma has a citrusy component. Flavor is a bit more citrus than ye average IPA - not bad at all. Citrus remains in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Wicked weed during RBWG. Pours slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, light caramel malts underneath citrus, earthy, herbal and fruity hops. The blood orange with peel has a mild tart character to it. Dry finish with some zing to the finish.

Growler. Pours amber with a white head. Very fruity and bitter nose here. It’s grapefruity and tropical with a caramel background. Palate is smooth. Good, juicy fruit notes are backed up by fairly sturdy malts. Very drinkable. Finish hints at grapefruit, oranges, melon and bitter herbs. Solid.
