COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopbursting is a relatively new brewing technique in which the vast majority of hops are added to the kettle late in the boil in order to achieve enhanced extraction of hop components (ie, Hopbursting gives you tons of hops flavor and aroma!) Our Hopburst IPA has a substantial malt base, balanced with huge additions of our unique hop blend. This creates an incredibly flavorful beer, with smooth bitterness and hoppy goodness.

jake65 (3695) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle: Pours an attractive amber color with a thick finger of creamy beige head. Lots of sticky lacing and great retention throughout. The nose is fresh and wet; florals and pine, along with a sweet maltiness. The malty base hints APA over IPA and the taste confirms this. Flavors of citrus and pine, along with faint herbals. Strong malty presence. Refreshing and flavorful, but not the hoppy experience I was led to expect from the label.

RobertDale (6477) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and caramel. Taste is similar. Decent enough IPA.

malrubius (2898) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle from Johns. No date (AFAICT), hope it’s this year’s. Copper with ring. Grassy leafy hop aroma with a little vegetal malt. Mild toasted caramel malt with minimal fruitness. Medium assertive citrus rind and woody hops finish. Fairly dry. Mild astringency. Medium body. Lively carbo. Pretty good.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a deep hazy amber with a medium off white creamy head. Aroma of orange zest,caramel malt, nuts and a nice sweet hop profile. Flavor of tropical fruits, citrus zest, nice but not harsh hop bitterness. Nice and dry with some caramel and nutty notes to balance. Was expecting a caramel bomb but it wasn’t! This bottle is at least 3 but probably more months old. Need to try a freshy.

3.7
tompete (333) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a reddish orange with a thin white head. Aroma of smooth hops, resiny. Very little malt flavour, dominated by hops. Even balanced finish, slightly bitter.

3.4
cards04 (2801) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
A nice ipa. Pours a burnt orange with some nice lacing. Aromas of dank basement, piss, dirty socks, and sweet honey and citrus. Nice hoppy flavours. More pine driven Than anything else. A touch of water on the finish keeps this from having a higher rating.

2.9
DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from Johns grocery. Pours orange with a thin white head. Leaves a little lacing in the glass. Slight pine sol on the nose. Has a bit of grapefruit on the tongue but it’s very faint. Finishes clean. Eh!

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Dark amber with white foamy head. Smell and taste heavy malt, sticky hops with caramel

3.4
blipp (9278) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber gold with a white head. Light floral hops, clean malts, light sweetness, and a hint of citrus. A bit restrained, but not bad.

3.2
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Orange-copper pour with a white head. Lots of caramel malt on the aroma. Flavor is caramel malt and a nice full hop profile, but it doesn’t finish bitter. Well done.
