"for a supposedly british style brewery, this one’s pretty stinkin hoppy. looks unassuming, but between the aroma and the taste, this is a highly enjoyable bitter, floral, grapefruity ipa. well done." madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Bottled: Amber coloured. Hazy. Dense light beige head. Sød blomstret duft. Lette cacao noter. Smagen er blød og afstemt. Frugt, krydderurter og lette blomster noter. Meget lækker. Har en god fylde i munden. Ender på en medium bitter note. God amber. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Crystal clear, deep amber hue. Small, creamy, ivory head. Mostly lasting with very good lacing.
Grapefruit, evergreen and white pepper in the nose. Some floral notes thrown in for good measure. Smells like a nicely hopped brew.
The flavor is malty for a moment... then the "well-thought-out" hop addition kicks in up front. Lightly pungent and moderately bitter with notes of English toffee and butterscotch throughout.
Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry and bitter finish with a hint of dairy butter and butterscotch at the wee end.
Reminds me of Butte Creek's Roland's Red.
This is a HopHead's Amber Ale!

Amber pour. Off white head. Aroma is mostly toasted caramel malt, floral hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor has more hops than I expected with less caramel than most ambers. Not bad.
