COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ThunderHop I.P.A. has an intense bitterness, flavor and aroma. We chose to use two varieties of American hops in the brewing process. The color is copper to amber and the aroma is noticeably hoppy due to the use of Glaciers in the dry hop process. You will also pick up a complexity from fruit-like esters. The body is big and malty with some caramel sweetness.

Pours a reddish amber with a light head with decent lacing. Aroma of syrupy orange malt. Taste of rye and oranges finishing with a spicy bitter finish. Not bad. A sixer here or there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Draft. Poured medium amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were quite hoppy: lots of pine, some grapefruit rind. Flavor also had some toffee, caramel, and mild fruity esters. Moderately malty. Medium mouthfeel.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus and tropical hops and toffee malts. The taste matches. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, well balanced. Very nice beer.

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle sent to me by artmcd8. Nice tropical fruity hop nose with some lemongrass and doughy malt. The color is amber with just a pencil thin head pouring out on top. The flavors are a bit herbal with sharp bitter pine and some tropical fruity notes. Not a lot of carbonation. The body shows some slick malt but is overall rather light allowing this to go down easily. Surprised by the 8% abv; doesn’t taste it. The finish is dry and bitter. This isn’t a standout or anything but is everything a solid IPA should be.

The aroma is suddley hoppy, you can smell the malt also. This beer has a nice hoppy, citrusy flavor, the malt is very balanced. Decent brew overall.

Not overaly hoppy on the aroma, still a bit resiny with a little citrus. The beer is well balanced, the malt punches through quite a bit with big carmel flavors, sweet and a bit earthy. Alcohol comes through a little but the mouthfeel is great, coating teh tongue quite well and fading very smoothly. Not overly bitter at all, decent IPA.

3.3
jbruner (4747) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a clear copper from the bottle with a thin ring of off-white lacy, that leaves little to no lace. Aroma of fresh hops, resinous pine and a hint of caramel malt. Taste follows, slight bitter, pretty standard american IPA, but nice to drink.
