COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much of the history of Hopothermia is lost to the mists of time. We know that the windswept lone brewer dreamt of a Double IPA so bold and packed full of hop flavor that it could keep the wild wolves from the door of his remote cabin. We know he was able to converse with the creatures of the woodsexcept for the bears who slept through the cold winter, and the mink, who were just really super rude. And we know he skillfully crafted a beer that became the stuff of legend.

There are strange brews made where glaciers cascade
By the brewers who know no bounds.
For they stuff in the hops til the temperature drops
And then call for a few more rounds.
In Alaska, it seems, every brewer dreams
of a bold Double IPA.
Hopothermias the beer, in the Last Frontier
That will keep the wild wolves at bay.

Pours Amber with a sticky thick lace. Aroma is mild pine and some alcohol. Flavor is weak, not hoppy, more barley wine. Run of the mill.

LinusStick (3277) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
A delicious IIPA. Aroma was big and hoppy. Grapefruit rind, lemon and notes of fresh cut grass. Pour was a medium dark gold with a one finger white head. Taste almost all hops. Fresh green hops with bitter grapefruit rind and lemon in the front. A lightly malty bitter sweet finish balances the beer out (barely). This beer is really all hops and very good. Nice. carbonation.

Bottle at home. Pours clear copper color with a medium sized off white head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have resin and citrus hops that favor grapefruit, toasted malts, mild caramel, moderate bitterness, good beer, but nothing stands out from any other DIPA.

MrBeerFanatic (1028) - Friona, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Pours dark amber light retention. Aromas caramel, pineapple, citrus, spicy hop, pine. Flavors pine, citrus, caramel and pineapple. Taste alot like the dipas Ive created. It has that intermingled complexity where nothing really stands out. The flavors are hard to separate in the complexity. Medium to high sweetness. Quickly forgettable.
