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.

Growler from my awesome mother-in-law. Pours a light clear orange with a small white head. Nose of orange and a bit of grapefruit, with lots of pith. Resiny notes that settle as it warms. Slight tropical notes from the Amarillo hops. Crisp and relatively light for an IPA. Slick palate.

From notes. Had this one at Doug’s House with a get together with he and Chris on August 22. 12 oz bottle. The pour is a nice coppery golden color with a thicker ivory colored head that falls down slowly, leaving a pretty good lace. The aroma is definitely citrusy. There is a good blood orange and a light grapefruit. The hops are really dank and lightly malty on the back end. I like the resin bitterness. The flavor is a little better. There is more of a citrusy juiciness to it and a bitterness that comes with it. It’s definitely a good thing. The malt fades a bit, but it’s still present. I love the juiciness and the equally intriguing bitterness. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly bitter and fruity finish. This is pretty damn tasty!

Tap. The look is golden to copper, cashew colored head, and cloudy. Nice fruity, pine smell. Tropical notes, more citrus. Good stuff overall. Fresh orange thing going on.

amber color; hoppy, citrusy aroma; great citrusy hop flavor with notes of orange and grapefruit; medium bodied, bready malt base; a nice hoppy beer with great citrus notes - just the right balance of citrus to accent the citrusy hps without overpowering

Pours cloudy deep amber with low white head. Aroma of blood orange, grapefruit, pine. Taste is initial sweet followed by a rich grapefruit bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

Bacterial (2872) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Deep copper pour, clear, with a white head. Really nice dank citrus nose. A little grapefruit, hop bitterness and grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish. Interesting but a bit more bitter than I prefer.

Bottle from Trevor. Pours blood orange with rimming white head. Nose is slight. Seriously tastes like eating orange rind. Bitter, not astringency, flat, mute, I-ate-too-much-rind bitter. Not my style,but well executed.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear copper with a white head of foam. Aroma was steong citrus and earthy pine. Sweet hop tea kind of taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Growler. Pours clear, pretty copper with a thick and frothy pale buff head. Aroma offers hoppy and orange notes plus whiffs of malt and grapefruit. Flavor pleases with orange, hoppy and subtle grapefruit notes, as well as fresh malt and a hint of evergreen. Mouthfeel features average body and OK fizz. Steal away with it.
