ACHops (1476) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2012
22 oz bomber imported straight from Eugene Market of Choice. Moderate head with considerable lacing. Solid semi-sweet taste with a strong but not overpowering hop punch on the back. Well balanced. Beautiful golden color. Not a world class DIPA, but a great effort and @ $4.99 a bottle I would revisit without hesitation.

Excellent beer poured from a 22oz bottle on Christmas (after a few other beers). Nice medium body and good hoppiness. Overall very good!

MelvinKalksma (1233) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, tea, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with tea, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Always love IPAs thst taste tea-ish. This beer is super creamy as well. Great at everything, but never amazing.

Bawelt (691) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 11, 2016
Cest super bon. Nez assez thylique, fond a priori malt. Des agrumes assez fortes, petit fond rsineux. Bouche : trs resineuse, pas mal dagrumes (surtout orange, pamplemousse). Sacre prsence en bouche, une sacre longueur resineuse et trs herbale.

maltman53 (467) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Bomber pours rusty orange with fast fading head. Bitter orange hops throughout. Overall, a maltier IPA than I prefer, but a example of its style.

Andrus86 (587) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2016
TAP. Golden pour, lively bubbles, with flat white head.. Big dank piney nose.. Malt is soft with caramel/biscuit base, then launches into a huge bitter middle, back end mellows to a fruity yet still bitter finish.. Sourced hop valley Eugene

Bottle. A slightly hazy golden color with a white head. A straw and hop aroma. It doesnt spring in either the aroma or the flavor.

A readily available Imperial IPA for the Pacific NW. It is nice for the price point with a little floral taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The almost saffron orange pour was mesmerizing. The beer smelled much like its brewery description, piney and citrusy. Unfortunately, it didnt translate well into a great tasting brew. This is the second Hop Valley IPA thats had a noticeably cloying aftertaste that was hard to get over. Id have to pass on this beer, if ever presented with an opportunity to drink it again.
