COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oak aged IPA
The Hopopotamus Oaked IPA is a suprisingly smooth IPA that packs a citrus punch and finishes with the caramel sweetness of oak.
Hops: A heap of classic Pacific Northwest Hops with a whole leaf hopback to elevate the aroma.
Malt: A blend of lightly roasted malts provide a subtle maltiness to this IPA

Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2017
Bit of a dull amber, thick head. Has a strong new oak note, with some leafy hops. Similar palate, with a fairly yeasty note. The robust oak character is a lot of fun.

3.8
sulawang (1202) - - OCT 2, 2017
Visual: Pours opaque orange-brown with a very small 1mm lasting head, ultra fine layer of retention, scattered steady micro streams.



Nose: orange-piney citrus floral bright hop oils (lvl-8)-pungency



Attack: crisp thicker, heavy sweet malt impression, creamy tingly mouthfeel



Mid-palate: (lvl-6-sweetness), tangy mandarin orange overtones, smooth toffee malt, light oak vanilla, green piney notes



Finish: lingering pine hops, a burst of hop bitter



Summary: Excellent complexity and balance in this one, with the oak playing a prominent yet balanced role in adding warmth and slight woodiness to the citrus piney base IPA. The transition from citrus to oak character is very pleasant and unique. Recommended.

2.9
fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2017
Draught at Big Rock Urban Brewery, Vancouver
Cloudy golden color. Bread aroma; vanilla and butter flavor, over some bread and toffee, and harsh bitterness in the final. Vegetable notes too.
Very messy.
