Reddish amber with a lasting thick head. The aroma and flavor are strongly of citrusy, fruity hops with malt in the background. The mouthfeel is full, without being too sweet. I must announce here that I have a bit of a problem with the American IPA. Too often they taste quite the same. There is nothing wrong with this beer, and I will rate it highly as it is delicious. But... it does not stand out from the crowd of hoppy, citrusy IPAs. Lots of aroma and flavor hops, not enough bittering hops in my opinion. Again, I like this, and it will take its place among the increasingly crowded company of heavily aroma hopped American IPAs. Delicious and recommended.

Such discourse. When I see HOP HOG IPA, I dont want a malty backbone. But thats how it is. Not a bad beer and a bit hoppier than the other crap Ive had that called itself IPA or IIPA or Double IPA. Get your recipes together. you all make the same beer that tastes like it all came from the same malt mulch. This beer was just OK. I dont expect to find a good beer in this area.

It pours dark golden with a decent orange hue. It has an off white moderate head with moderate lacing. Overall it is slightly cloudy. It has aromas of grass, bread, pine, and citrus. There are flavors of grass, toast, pine, a hint of floral and hints of citrus. It has a light-moderate feel to it with a low-moderate bitter finish. Overall, it is an easy drinking ale that is not quite aromatic as most IPAs or bitter.
