COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Can I scream….” for more hops? You sure can. Two row American barley jammed packed with as much Apollo, Newport, Simcoe, Topaz, and Citra hops we could get our hands on, The Shape of Hops to Come is an 8.5% ABV American-styled imperial IPA that’s got a ton of bitterness, along with juicy, dank resiny pine-like, and citrus forward hop character that is worthy of it’s name. Dry hopped for two weeks this hop bomb has as much hop power we can muster!

16 oz can. Deep golden color, full lasting white head. Aroma is grapefruit, bolder pine, and white bread. Maybe citrus. Caramel malt / crystal malt backbone makes this feel outdated. Lots of pine with traces of alcohol.

I looked on Untappd to see scores on this to make an educated guess on buying this. Wow, what a mistake. This is average at best. Caramel and hot booze diminished my experience.

Mmmm... good stuff! And it went really well with the burger I ordered at The Field here in State College. Delicious stuff!

FROTHINGSLOSH (8362) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a vibrant orange color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was rough.and gritty with piney and floral hops. The flavor was bitter and somewhat rough with piney, earthy, floral and perfumey hops and an undertone of tobacco. Very long piney and earthy finish. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

Pour from 16oz can. Hazy orange color with foamy head. Very fragrant. Aroma of pine and citrus. Smooth and balanced flavor with a somewhat thick mouthfeel. Very nice. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice piney smell to it. First taste is great as a powerful aroma of hops sweeps he mouth, it takes a few seconds for the bitterness to hit but when it does it is a nicely balanced bitter. Malty notes come through eventually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (5449) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2017
16 oz can. Hazy amber body with a good white head. Surprising sweet note when this hits the tongue, but this is a hop bomb with a fairly high level ood bitterness at the peak. The aftertaste has moderate bitterness and lingering flavor of grapefruit peel.

mansquito (7260) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2017
From my father: pours clear copper with a white head. Aroma is pine and plenty grapefruit. Taste is somewhat bitter, actually pretty bitter with a lingering aftertaste. Pretty good.

From Olga's. The aroma: resin, spruce. Appearance: clear amber, white head. Flavor: resin, spruce. Finish is very resiny. Thick in mouthfeel. Nice. Blasted with hops.

beern (250) - Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Pours orange-golden and mostly translucent with an aroma of citrus and a hint of pine. Tastes of pine and citrus with significant lingering bitterness. It’s full bodied with moderate to lively carbonation. It’s full, like eating a bitter loaf of bread with an alcohol finish. Wow. It’s a sipper.

2.3
ganache (6106) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Pint can. Nose pine, dough, lesser citrus; pour cloudy orange golden, a little dirty, with a soapy beige head. Taste strongly bitter, strongly hops and raw, medium sweetness with straightforward malt (with a touch of flab), salty/astringent notes come out in the smooth finish and linger. Pine strongest with alcohol, resin, grit; citrus is low but lots of earth and some mild toast/scorch, some nuggety-resin that isn't really. Full body, fresh but really is flabby and cluttered.
