HopFish is then lightly filtered to maintain the appropriate body and flavor. The beer features a combination of European malts to balance the hops, making this quite drinkable and quite versatile in pairing with food.

Malts: Two-Row Pale, English Medium Crystal, and Munich
Hops: Nugget, Palisades, Cascade, Columbus
Yeast: Chico
Original Gravity: 14.7 plato

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a translucent dark orange with a large white frothy cap on top. Great retention; lots of sticky lace rings left behind. Nice clean citrus aroma wafts out. Lemon, orange slices, leafy hops. A good bit of zip to this. Crisp, refreshing feel. Drinks very nicely. Great bitter snap that is full of flavor. Bitter citrus rinds, a touch of pepper, leafy herbs - that transforms into a a mellow sweet finish of honeycrisp apples and tangerine. This one really surprised me. It was so easy to drink and had a great balance of mild bitterness with a touch of sweetness. I will make sure to get some more of this. Just remember this isnt supposed to be Sculpin or Stone IPA and the like, so please dont review it like it is. This is an EIPA, and a good one at that.

Itzjerm (2660) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2017
This isnt a bad beer... just a bad ipa. Very malty and full bodied. Very light on the hop flavor. Sweet very sweet. at best a pale ale. Good carbonation.

Rex_Remes (195) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 31, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: hoppy, fruit ice cream, sweet malt/corn, hint of smokey. APPEARANCE: golden Amber, mostly clear, just a tad hazy, creamy pale white head, some lacing. TASTE: toasty malt, some coffee/toffee, dry citrus rind, creamy black cherry, light resin, soft hop finish. PALATE: medium body, fresh upfront, clean, not overly bitter or dry. OVERALL: this IPA leans a bit towards the malts, good ale look and feel, very drinkable. Definitely more English-style, as described. Not as big as many Amercan-style IPAs but still has decent body and complexity. so this is less of a sipping ale. Would make a good every day, hearty beer.

light balanced malt/hop aroma. gold and clear in color with fast fading head. taste is hop forward but had malt background to balance flavors of resinous hops and caramel malts.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 13, 2016
Not sure why I never rated this. Had multiple bottles of this when studying at UPenn, 2009. One of my first American IPAs. It pours a clean rich golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is resinous and lightly malty with notes of pine cones caramel and resin. Taste is medium sweet with a nice malty backbone and a clean bitter resinous hop presence. Its a classic West Coast style IPA with good malts and resinous hops. Would not love it today probably, but did enjoy it back then.

Decent IPA, on the light side. Pretty dry, grassy taste. Amber pour and a fast dropping, fluffy head.

Decent. Not bad. Good enough to be in the store, I guess. Standard east coast ipa. Run of the mill. Id buy it again in the pick-6 shelf.
