Hops have taken over the world. Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.
MALT: Pale ale, Pilsner

Oooo man. Light amber, small bubbly head that rings. Holy shit what a savage first 10 minutes put out by the Oilers vs the Stars. Malty biscuit, apricot, Rrgf, pineapple juice, maybe some caramel. The aroma dropped off big time but I still like. Slight flowery tropical note. Good taste - it’s got power but power that is under control. Huge hops balanced well with the same malts I found in the aroma. The grapefruit is in the twilight Zone between ruby red and unsweetened, perfume, Nelson memories, tropical, citrus goodness, last sip shows some spice. I dig. I think Armageddon was better, different beers.

On tap at the Mill. A nice amber brew with whispy white head a strong fruity hop aroma. The hops and malt blend together nicely from start to finish keeping sweetness in check. Love this one

Pale golden orange pour with a thin white head and lots of sticky lacing ..... aroma of tropical fruits, some citrusy hops, apricot, orange, pine and chewy caramel malts, juicy fruits ..... taste is of chewy caramel malts, tropical fruits, some citrusy orange, apricot and grapefruit and faded piney hops .... shame this wasn't fresher because it is not as bitter and dry hopped as other raters have .... finishes sweet and malt with some lingering citrusy hops

Love this double IPA, one of my favourite beers in NZ! Highly recommended if you are a big fan of hoppy beer. This is the one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle from Ale and Lager kuala lumpur. Pours hazy golden with little head. Sweet fruity aroma with sweet citrus and tropical hoppy taste.

A DIPA that disguise its profile to the likes of an IPA. Good stuff. My kind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (11022) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy copper with frothy white head. Nose is bitter, resiny hops, pale malt, florals. Tastes piney, resiny, with some apricotty fruitiness, a bitter finish, and more sweetness as it warms. Florals throughout, and the IBU and ABV levels are very apparent.

bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2017
(500ml bottle, BB 14 10 17) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of resiny pine, grass, weed, mango, and grapefruit. Flavor of grass, papaya, pine, and grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish.

Skarecrow (932) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 11, 2017
500ml bottle from West Liquor. Light amber color and great head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine resin and peach. Surprisingly mild bitterness with juicy fruit hop palate and smooth finish. Nice one.

AgentAle (1809) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
Aroma is citrus,clove, slight funk and earthiness. Taste is light sweet malts, caramel, citrus, pine needles and a light alcohol warmth to finish. The hop profile overtakes most the malt character bit that is not surprising for an IPA. It is still quite enjoyable. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2017
500ml bottle. Smells sweet and syrupy. A thick beer with nice carbonation. Sweet piny with lots of hops. Has a really smooth hoppy finish.
