The Hackney Hopster is a debonair young chap of a pacific pale ale. Dressed in Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand, the Hopster shows off flavours of grapefruit, lemon zest and gooseberry. With a dry and fresh finish, you may find yourself wanting to hang out with this beer more often.

It’s a joke, get it? Hipster is like hopster and you find hipster in hackney. amber clear color. floral and grassy aromas. Sweet and bitter taste. Nice beer but leaves my mouth a little too dry.

Fra keg på Taproom 12 Okt 17. Gusjegråbrun. Filmskum. Tynn teppelacing. Veldig lett fruktaroma. Smaken aprikos. Syrlig. Ettersmak av klementiner.

Bottle at Wigston a few days ago. Scored at the time but forgot to add comment - from memory this was an above average amber bitter, slight bitterness.

(Keg at Woolshed, 20170331) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was huge and white. Aroma had fruitiness, toffee and berries. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, berries, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A weak pale ale.

Handpull cask from the Crown & Shuttle, Shoreditch. Golden, almost straw. A tiny bit of white head on top. Bit of grapefruit, pear, white wine and apple skin on the aroma. Taste is pretty thin unfortunately, mildly but noncomittally bitter and a trifle soapy. It’s fairly average and isn’t helped by the fact that it’s served on the warm side... not the beer’s fault but it doesn’t do it any favours.

Draught @ Woolshed, Helsinki. Slightly stingy and earthy pale ale with loads of berries, hints of hops and mild tartness. Feels a bit off.

50cl bottle at home. Golden/yellow with white head. Grapefruit almost white wine aroma - taste: quite yeasty - like Belgian blond. Enjoyable

Good English pale ale. Not great, but good for the style. Noticeably the body is better than usual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, Wine Tavern, Leicester. Hazy golden with a white head. Bready with sweet tropical fruit and citrus rind. Yeasty with clean grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Decent.
