COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppiest Brew Works beer ever? The smell of grapefruit, a sweet malt flavor, and oh by the way, lots of hop bitterness. Brewed in the tradition of West Coast ales, we have put loads of malt and hops in our kettle to come up with this sensational ale. Brewed with pale, and crystal malts, hopped with Tomahawks for Yakima Valley, WA. This beer styled has made many a microbrewery famous and this one is sure to please all those who love hops.

Bottle. Dirty, river-bottom orange, completely opaque, with a fizzy but stoic head. This doesn’t much of a discernible aroma, and on the tongue it has an odd fizziness, funky herbalness, and without much backbone. Misses the mark IMHO. (#6415, 11/24/2016)

RRistow12 (741) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber. Aroma is sweet caramel with little citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild bitterness. A little too malt forward in my opinion. Flavors of caramel, toffee, earthy notes, pine, citrus. Overall an average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep Amber appearance. Think yeungling. Creamy head with sweet aroma with Caramel notes. Initially pretty sweet with a touch of sour lingering. Pretty metallic hop explosion that lingers in a bitter way. Not the best but still pretty thin mouthfeel and easy to drink. Interesting but not overly complex and not juicy enough for me. Traditional west coast style done half right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good good IPA. The taste of fruit is stronger than the taste of hops. The smell is sweet and the appearance is average for an IPA. The beer goes down smooth and is very drinkable. You can fire these IPA’s back!

A light hazy rust orange. A faint aroma of caramel, malts and light citrus hops. Taste is a mix of caramel, malts, grains, and light citrus hops. Very malty aftertaste.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy amber. Two finger off white head, nice lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit and light pine. Taste is mainly bitter balanced with a light caramel malty backbone. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, slick mouth feel. Finishes moderately bitter. Tasting notes of herbs, grass, plum, pine, caramel and earthy notes. This bottle seems past it’s shelf life, will have to try again in the fall. Still drinkable but strange.
