Hopworks IPX Single Hop - El Dorado 3.3
A fairly basic IPA, nice and refreshing but nothing memorable. Pours a very nice bright cloudy orange with a white head. Smells great, citrus, grapefruit and mango. Taste is balanced, but a little watery, with a nice fruity finish, along with a bit of orange rind bitterness. Had in the bottle.

Hopworks Survival 7-Grain Stout 3.8
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar rødlig mahogny med ok skum. Den siste av de fire på planken. Svart med imponerende flott beige skum. Myk og kompleks aroma og smak med stor fylde - kan det skyldes de eksotiske kornslagene som er brukt? Lekker kaffe sammen med litt furunål og sjokolade. Halvtørr og meget lett å drikke. En minneverdig stout.

Hopworks IPX Single Hop - Simcoe 3.5
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar dyp gylden med flott skum. Intens Simcoe-aroma. Heldigvis har Simcoe-katten forlatt åstedet før smaken setter inn, den er myk, saftig med rikelige mengder grapefrukt, lime og furunål. Pluss et lite strøk av mynte. Gode greier!

Hopworks IPA 3
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar gylden med flott skum. Som i Velvet ESB synes jeg de har spart på aromahumlen, men jeg finner bitterappelsiner (og marmelade) sammen med litt gress og urter. Noe grapefrukt og furu blander seg inn i smaksbildet. Lang, bitter ettersmak, men den skjemmes desverre en ufrisk beskhet mot slutten.

Hopworks Velvet ESB 3.1
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar rødlig mahogny med ok skum. De har spart på aromahumlen, men jeg aner noe blomsteraktig og karamell. Veldig god og typeriktig smak med blomster/urter, karamell og en kjeks eller to. Flott balansert bitterhet med lang og fruktig ettersmak. En meget bra start på kvelden.

Hopworks IPA 4.4
Slightly hazy golden color with creamy, white head. Intense dank, vegetal hops on the aroma. Chives, dill but also some ripe tropical fruits. There is also a slight nail polish remover hint but it’s not really offensive. Taste starts also really hoppy, the same dank notes from the aroma. The bitterness makes its appearance only in the finish, not harsh, just right for a legit IPA. Body is really smooth, the carbonation just right. Really good IPA overall. Modern hops, smooth body and a good amount of bitterness.

Hazy amber color with white head. Aroma has some citrusy hops, orange mostly, and some sweet malts. Taste is quite hoppy, the earthy, piney type, very west coast. Body is medium to full with a good amount of carbonation. Really good beer overall, but nothing really special.

Hopworks Ace of Spades 3.8
650ml bottle from Firma-Bier

Rated while listening to Motörhead - Ace of Spades. RIP Lemmy - Pours clear dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of resinous grassy hops, pine, herbal notes, hints of age, biscuity caramely malts and citrus. Taste is crisp, resinous hoppy and herbal with some grass, biscuity caramely maltiness, pine and citrus. Finish is resinous, sweetish and caramely with some grass, pine and herbal hops. Pretty generic, but balanced resinous west coast DIPA. Surprisingly good despite the bottle is probably not very fresh.

Resin and well balanced with grapefruits and mango with passion fruits. Very fruity and with resin balance. Taste: full body with hoppy blast, grassy and exotic fruits domination. Peach, mango and grapefruits, lime finish. Caramel and sweet balance. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: lime and grapefruits, finish resin and wet bitterness. Amazing.

Hopworks Ace of Spades 4.3

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne z niewielkimi drobinkami. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, krótka. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Cudny cytrusowy zapach (grejpfrut, bergamotka) przemieszany z nutami karmelowo-ziołowymi (cukierki ślazowe). W troszkę z tyłu owoce tropikalne (melon, mango). Ogólnie rzecz ujmując w pewnym stopniu przypomina aromatem Earl Grey.
SMAK: Bogactwo smaków. Zioła, karmel, grejpfruty, żywiczność, nuty herbaciane. Rozgrzewający ziołowo-alkoholowy posmak. Goryczka wysoka, krótka. Ekstremalnie pijalne.
OGÓLNIE: Brak słów - fenomenalne piwo!

Pushing up the ante, I know you’ve got to see me,
Read’em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
The Ace of Spades, The Ace of Spades!

Hopworks Motherland 3.2
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes, Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Dark brown color with an average sized beige to light brown head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is malts, brown malts, caramel. Tastes about the same with some sweetness. Quite boring and I would call this a brown ale rather than an Imperial Stout. Disappointing.
