COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mattkatz (20) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle pour in tulip style shaker. Clear filtered, light amber color. Thin, white head with little lacing. Caramel toffee notes in aroma, with hint of pine. Light on carbonation, strong initial hop hit with distinct bitterness, but soon mellows to be relatively easy on palate with malty, smoothness. Aftertaste is sweet but a bit stronger than other Double IPA?s, at this 7% abv. Seems like a decent entry for the style.

MrTipple (6991) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2017
Intense, creamy, overripe tropical fruits, mango, candied citrus fruits. Clear, very dark gold, small, creamy, off-white head. Light bitter. More bittersweet tropical and citrus fruit, overripe papaya, marmalade, orange peel, creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Nice. Keg at The Local Taphouse, Melbourne.

PabloZab (1750) - Wroclaw, POLAND - NOV 1, 2017
Bottle 330ml. Clear, dark-amber colour. Thin but long ecru colour head, great lacing. Aroma is malty with caramel, toast, biscuits notes and small hint of hops behind. It's delicate but very nice. Medium body, caramel with medium to high, herbal, long bitterness. It is rather in english than amercian IPA style but still is good, heavy in feeling, definitely not refreshing with "dull" bitterness.

2.9
ALLOVATE (3087) - 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 (1510) - 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.

3.5
R4N5H (1374) - 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

3.3
varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2015
Deep gold with thin off-white head. Piney, caramel, resin aromas. Taste is caramel, piney, herbal, a bit of bitterness

3.8
Muggus69 (2807) - 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.

3.2
jonnyguns (1108) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
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
