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.

Tap @ Black Bottle in Fort Collins. Pours a fairly clear, orange appearance with a cream colored head. Somewhat spicy resiny hoppy, piney, orange fruity, a bit toasty malty aroma. Somewhat spicy hoppy flavor with notes of tangerine, toasty malty, and herbs. Light booze on the finish. Not bad.

BVery (10138) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap. Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a frothy white head. Juicy and pine hop. Pretty well balanced and flavorful. Nice brew.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Deep orange, dense white head. Aroma has some citrus pith and grass. The hops are quite astringent on the palate, citrus rind but with a slight medicinal quality. Malts are sweet. Finishes with aspirin bitterness. Disappointing.

alexsdad06 (9965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2016
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.

arminjewell (9574) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, caramel, toffee, hints of grass into a bit of earth, pretty sweet smelling. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, hints of grass into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight spice, finishing bitter. Just ok.
