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.

At first I wondered where the hops came in. Then I found them in a rather perfumy aftertaste. Not unpleasant. A lot of sweetness on the palate too. But guess you'd call that 'balanced'. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Light palate, pretty dry. Astringent hops - dry bitterness dominates. The fruit, when you get to it, is orange with a little mango. Dry bitter finish with minerals.

De Bierkoning, Amszterdam. Szép, világos vörösréz színe van, tetején egy közepes, tejszínhab szerűen krémes habbal, ami hamar vékonnyá válik, de az végig kitart. Illata fás, élesztős, kissé zöldséges és zöld komlós. Íze vajas, zöld körtés, gyümölcsös, malátás, gyógynövényes, amin lassan teljesen eluralkodik a kesernyés komló. Vékony teste van de nem tűnik vizesnek, közepesen buborékos. Utóíze gyümölcsös, határozottan keserű és igen száraz. Most egy jó kis házi pizza után, igen jólesik, szinte érzem, hogy tépi szét a bőven adagolt, zsíros holland sajtokat a gyomromban. Kellemes.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Cask handpull at County Hotel Ashford. Copper colour slight haze lasting cream head. Yes quite a hoppy bitter. In fact the hops are excellent. Very good butter that is bitter and hoppy. Nice. Could do with a bit more backbone but it has some ok bischit and that finishing hop us fresh and biting. Good

Hopping mad?!? This is about as hoppy as a bag of frogs who have had their legs systematically pulled off by a small child.
