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.

Floral tropical fruit hop aroma. Orange color. Citrus and pine and some candied fruit dominate the taste. Good malt backbone. Well balanced with a good lingering bitterness. Definitely a taste bud killer if you have more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great piny aroma. light amber color. Malty apple taste. light to medium bitter finish. Not particularly spicy. Very smooth mouthfeel with crisp front and sweet end. Overall a nice ipa that is not your typical west coast double.

pours a clear dark amber with a large yellowish head, and good lacing. smell is of hops, floral, citrus, malt in the back, and leaves. taste is of light grapefruit, hops, bark, a touch of pine, some caramel, and malt. ends a little oily and bitter.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2014
Glass-like and bold orange in color with a bright white head, this beer has an aroma of crisp, fresh, strong, complex hops with a touch of caramelized malts. Some strong bitterness protrudes from the flavor that, although hoppy, is mostly sweet and almost dull in body. Its full in the mouth, but something about his seems unbalanced - at least between the flavors, body, and mouthfeel. The finish is mostly of hop flavor and is really empty.

On tap at Woodys in Golden. Golden amber and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass, herbs, tropical fruit and floral notes. Similar flavor, medium plus bitterness with toasted grains and light alcohol.

rlgk (18841) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Bottles at the hotel room in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a rich offwhite head. Hoppy grassy flavor, caramel, peach, cream notes, some pine. A bit too malty for me.

Big and smooth. Big hop profile, not too much alcohol showing through. Fruity, citrus, sweet malt. Nice stuff.

This double drinks like a pale ale. Very smooth on the palate, amber body with nice head, citrusy hops. Easy drinker.

Odd beer. Some decent hop bitterness but has a candy sweet finish that doesnt fit. Amber with almost no head.
