COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring. Also available bottle conditioned all year.
Hopping Mad uses just one single hop variety, Progress, to achieve its appealing aroma, its pleasingly bitter taste and its delightful sparkle. We believe the result is uniquely enjoyable. So did the judges at the Beauty of Hops Awards, who awarded it a Silver Medal.

Bottle. Hazy orange with slim soon gone white head. Sweet malty aroma. Malty taste with a hoppy finish. OK.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
Appearance is an interesting blend of orange and amber, with pinhead-sized specks of yeast floating throughout. The aroma is a combination of malt and vinyl. Nice, grainy palate. The flavour starts off a little wishy-washy, but bitterness cuts in towards the middle and gradually expands towards a long, sharp bitter finish. Not bad, but aside from the free-floating yeast, not especially unique or different.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Worst label Iíve ever seen. Quite cloudy though I poured it with care. Didnít chill it at all, and glad I didnít. I enjoyed the aroma and malty flavour and bitterness, and I have to say it went down pretty quickly.

johndoughty (3844) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2005
Slightly cloudy and not as hoppy as I had expected from the bottles label. Dissapointing

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle. I got a lot of citrus and orange in this, some sherbert. I also found it quite smooth and fairly light.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. Amber colour with short lasting head. Bitter citric hop notes, a beer with a one track message and that is a big hop note. Dry, grassy with some apricot, but mostly hops.
