Our Hopinator is a modern day beer super-power, goes off like the 4th of July and is bigger than Texas! In this supersized India Pale Ale we pack in an exceptional amount of American Chinook, Centennial, Citra and Aussie Topaz hops resulting in a brash bitterness that vies for palate dominance over a smooth caramel malt bill.

ALLOVATE (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2017
A little too far over use-by, but interesting in its age. It pours a misty ruddy chestnut with little life beyond a shortlived wafer of suds. Oxidised, sherry and tart rhubarb on the nose with a hint of blackbutt honey, toasted muesli and grapefruit. Vinous and spicy on the palate with faded, dusty, earthy hops. Quite slick in feel in the finish but light in body overall. Balanced between a sweet, fruity front and dry vinous finish. The aroma comes through strong in the flavour. Really can’t compare this to a fresh batch so an re-rate to follow. Different. (33cL, bottled on 19/04/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Dervock (1419) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle - pours burnt orange with a big white head. Aroma is orange, caramel and cereal malt. Taste is sweet malt with a drying citrus finish.

R4N5H (1289) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
On tap at Freehouse, Singapore on 23-Sep-2016. Hazy amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and wood. Medium body and carbonation. Heavily in floral hops and citrus. Medium bitterness. Hides the ABV pretty well.

wilza320 (23) - - JUN 25, 2016
330ml bottle, minimal head retention but a nice citrusy hop aroma with some caramel malt coming through on the nose. Super well balanced, easy drinking for a double IPA

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2015 80 ibu of punchy but balanced hops. From bottle as first beer of the night went down very tasty

varanid99 (1316) - AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2015
Deep gold with thin off-white head. Piney, caramel, resin aromas. Taste is caramel, piney, herbal, a bit of bitterness

Muggus69 (2671) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2015
330mL from Beer Cartel. Bottled 29/10/14 Copper body with uniform haze, holds a dense inch of head. Plenty of hops on the nose; pine, grass, citrus, tropical fruits, passionfruit, with a good touch of caramelly, biscuity malt in there. Body is somewhat sticky & slick, but at the same time full without too much weight for strength. Palate offers plenty of biscuity, sweet caramel malt with lashings of piney, citrus, passionfruit hops. Strong bitterness on a smooth long finish. Well balanced DIPA, towards the lower end of the spectrum in intensity.

Bottle from mane liquor. Nose shows dank hops like pine and resin. Taste is much the same, full mouthfeel, bitter pine hops. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (9867) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 17, 2014
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is woody resin pine needle. The flavour is strong bitter with a smooth resin wood peppermint citrus hop palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

stoutnick (842) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2014
Murky caramel appearance. Aroma is a big confused - almost smells like a butterscotch infection due to the interplay between the big malt base and the hops. This is all about the big malts - big caramel sweetness with some bitterness floating out.
