bottle from Het Bierhuis, Breda, stouby (4669) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
I found this brew fairly competitive with European brewed APAs. Aroma of fruity, sweet and a bit pine/spruce is average in intensity, hoppy flavor also - very nice, mild, pleasant. Slightly thick/mashy malt texture, but without mashy off-flavors. Pours slightly unclear. Taste is medium sweet with light bitterness. Avg- carbonation.
Sample at Eriksen. Yellow with a white head. Aroma medium malty and hoppy (grass, citrus). Flavor light sweet and spicy. Light to medium body.

0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is golden, cloudy and with a huge head. Aroma has spices. Taste is sweet and spicy - not hoppy despite the name. Similar to modern Belgian spicy ale. Quite good. SimonBlok (620) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2017

Ik vond deze wat smaak betreft toch licht tegenvallen. Aroma was prima, de kleur ook. Gedronken uit fles. thomashoogendam (11) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2017
Although called Hoppenbier, the hops aren’t that overpowering. The nose has plenty of spice and some malt to it. Bit of grass, but also plenty of citrus. Unfortunatly, the nose is stronger than the taste. Certainly not bad, it also isn’t highly complex. Mostly hop-bitter, and slight sweetness.
The body is light, which helps really, making this an accesible beer.
All in, not Jopen’s best, but certainly not horrible. A nice drinkable ale, would work a treat on a hot day sitting on a terras somewhere, enjoying the nice weather. vlada94 (190) - Nis, SERBIA - MAY 29, 2017
Hazy golden colour with thin head, hoppy aroma , fresh with hints of citrus, taste is hop forward, citrusy , fruity and kinda soury.
