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 woods—except 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.
Hopothermia’s the beer, in the Last Frontier
That will keep the wild wolves at bay.

Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that met my expectations.

3.4
Lubiere (13772) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
A golden amber DIPA with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, biscuit malt with loads of floral and piney hops, light doughy character, nice. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light iodine notes, resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth but a bit on the sweet side. On tap at Freakin Frog.

3.3
Drake (13639) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2017

3.3
crossovert (12641) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Choppy and acidic. Lots of pith and sharp citrus rind. There is also a massive sweetness and booziness. Its large.

3.1
Sammy (12091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Light orange body and moderate hop aroma. On tap at the ginger man houston. Drinkable but lighter mouthfeel than expected. New beer on tap.

3.3
slowrunner77 (11912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2015
not a bad price for the style but still more than a normal 6-pack beer without being any better. Crisp hoppy aroma but also a little biscuit, which I don’t like. I’d say above average beer, below average IIPA.

3.7
deyholla (11486) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a lot of bitter pine and resin with backing notes of grass and grain. Flavor has a nice combination of bitter, resin, sweet grains and grass.
