The name says it all...a full bodied India Pale Ale brewed for those that take their hops so seriously, they are referred to as ’Hop Heads’. Brewed year round since 1999, HopHead IPA is our Signature beer and was the first ’serious’ IPA to be crafted for wide consumption by a Canadian brewery. Considered risky business for a small Canadian craft brewer at the time, it is now considered to have been ahead of its time by leading the charge into brewing full flavoured IPA’s. Intense hop aroma with a complex malt/hop profile. Snappy bitterness with a very dry finish.

Malt: Pale, Light Munich, Vienna, Crystal
Hops: Perle, Centennial, Cascade, Columbus, Crystal

2014 rating. Pours a nice size frothy white head and has a clean golden amber appearance. Dirty lacing. Fairly excessive carbonation. Aromas of light roasted malts, strong citrus and earthy hops. Flavours are earthy hops, some spices and sort of a rusty like taste in the finish. Nice hoppy bitterness on the palate that really lingers. Has a chalky and tingling sensation. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Pretty good ipa!

Was a good IPA that didn't knock my socks off but was enjoyable. I thought the hoppy taste would stand out more.

Poured clear and golden with a minimal white head, Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Medium bodied, flavour is hoppy grapefruit with a slightly dry, bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Dark orange, cloudy. Not much foam. Hoppy bitterness predominant, with some citrus and pine. OK, but there are better IPAs

355ml bottle, less then a week fresh. Pour light cooper with a dense but small off white head that vanish and stay on the outer rim. Malt aroma with notes of green resin. Taste of sweet malt, lots of residual sugar. Not enough hops. Long bitter finish with lots of sweetness.

Orange-gold body with good head. (That’s what she said! Ha!) Malty hop aroma, not too bad, not too expert either. Flavour is soft hops and weak hint of malts. Very subdued, preferred the double better. Give this to your friends at the barbeque and keep the strong one behind the bar for yourself.

Very light flavoured but quite bitter. Strong in that sense and quite tasty. But everything else is fairly bland.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
An awesome snappy IPA from Tree brewing! Hazy orange pour with a thin head, no lacing. Notes of pine, bitter hops and some lemongrass spiciness almost.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange in colour with a long lasting large off-white head, excellent. The aroma is of citrus, some pine, light caramel, some toasted malt. The flavour is of light citrus and pine, earthy and toasty, some caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, good bitterness and hoppy. A nice balanced and highly drinkable IPA.

CletusVanDamme (16) - North Vancouve, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
The HopHead is an extremely hoppy and flavourful beer, reminiscent of many American IPAs. The HopHead has a nice full body and mouthfeel, without the hoppiness being too overpowering. A fine ale all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
