HoppityHop's rating

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
HoppityHop (204) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2012
All bitterness, no malt backbone, I mean NONE. Pours a little blonde for an IPA, but really what does color have to do with flavor? Big pillowy head is a plus, except when you want a pint of beer and not 10 ounces of beer and 5 ounces of foam. Slight aroma of woody hops but theres no flavor. Strictly coarse bitterness and nothing more. Very watery for an IPA or anything else of this supposed strength. Then again, after drinking a pint on an empty stomach, I doubt its anywhere near 6.8%. Sadly, another let down from a very hit or miss brewery.

Bottle Saturday night in the hotel room at TAP NY 2106. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Musk, funk, fruit on the nose. Medium bodied, fruity citrus, musk. Soft citrus, musk, bitterness on the finish.

Drank on tap at Defiant Brewing Company. Pours a nice golden color, with a bit of head. Nice hoppy aroma both floral and citrus notes. Not a bad IPA!

Ugh! Best way to describe this one is carbonated hop water. No craftsmanship to this beer at all. Just a bunch of hops randomly thrown into a beer. Drain pour garbage. Save your money. This isnt my first crappy beer from Defiant; how are you guys still in business?

Chris and Alisa brought this one back for me from a trip to New Jersey. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a massively over carbonated dark golden color with an enormous fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry and chalky with notes of Pez and vague citrus. The flavor was bitter and chalky with pepper, Pez and vague fruits. Medium length finish. Light body and massively over carbonated. Meh.

gripweed57 (1827) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a moderate Rocky beige head. Caramel malty nose. Dank bittersweet toasted malt flavor. Huge hop bitterness is astringent and out of balance. Lacks complexity. All hops, no substance.

From Anthonys coal fired pizza in Fair Lawn, NJ A little bit of bitterness, a little bit of sweetness, not enough floral/citrus notes for it to feel IPA like. Kind of well bland. Drinkable I guess but more since there isnt much to drink. Its not a bad beer and I dont mind drinking it, it is just one that is boring.

ben4321 (6144) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/7/14

Aroma: The nose is clean hops, orange/citrus, some caramel, buttery notes, and resin hints
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color with a small off-white head and average lace
Flavor: Tastes similar to the nose, but with the malts getting more buttery, and a bitter, citrus finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has an okay mouthfeel overall, with a dryish finish
Overall Impression: I wasnt too impressed by this IPA. It isnt a terrible beer or anything, but the flavor just doesnt quite work. I dont really know where to settle on this beer. Maybe Im even a little too high with this score?

Bottle. Pours orange gold. White head. Nose/taste of sugared grapefruit, pine, resin, caramel malt and toast. Medium body. Overcarbonated mess coming out of the bottle.

dmac (6037) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured a super deep orangish amber with a smaller quick fading foamy off white head. Aroma of oranges, honey topped bread, limons, caramel malts ans sugar. Body is kick ass, medium mouthfeel, softer to average carbonation that brings out a slight creaminess, lingering dry bitter finish. Flavor of dry toast, bad oranges, caramel malts, bitter yellow grapefruit rind. Meh.
