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.

Bottle @ home. Pours orange with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy, sweet malt and some citrus. Flavor is grassy, mild citrus and some pine. Not bad, but kind of blah

Pours deep golden orange. Great hop and floral character. Great mix of bitter hops and malt backbone. One of my new favorite beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber color out of the bottle with a short foamy khaki colored head. Big sweet hop fruity nose. This has lots of the pinching citrus zest hop characteristics with apricot and tropical fruit sweetness, all over a firm malty backbone. The ABV is well hidden in this easy drinking IIPA.

Strangebrewer (1258) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
bottle. Poured clear copper with a thin white head. Caramel malt aroma with an orange astringent note. Medium-full body, creamy carbonation, warning alcohol finish. A moderately malt forward bready base, balanced bitter-sweet flavour, apricot, citrus peel and pine resin with floral hops and a peppery note.

JPDIPSO (6042) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Dark orangeish copper color with a tallish, creamy looking, light beige head. Orange and pine scents. A hopshead lovers aroma. Flavors of pale malt, caramel, oranges, grapefruit and zest. Sweetness seems to track throughout. Tangerines in the finish. Whole lot of citrus going on. Light acidic dryness in the end. 1/14

JStax (5903) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a clear copper color with a big head of white foam. The aroma is resinous and pine forward. Sticky pine notes are abundant in the taste and aroma. Fairly bitter on the back end, but the front end is majorly sweet. Big body and medium carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. Not my thing, I guess.

Reid (2450) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2016
22 oz bottle from Capital Market in Salem OR $5.99 Pours a darker than usual orange/amber colour with an absolutely beautiful large thick and frothy head ( cream coloured). Aroma is of course strong on the hops..floral, spicy orange zest. but huge toffee malts in the back. Taste s similar to the nose..but very sweet. Mouth feel is average..its thick and viscous..carbonation is way low..and thus the sweetness becomes sticky on the palate. Started off so good but went down hill fast..needs a more vigorous carbonation

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 (3360) - 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.
