COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the sharp aromatics of citrusy pine that permeates your nostrils to the hefty malt backbone, Hop-O-Matic will slice and dice its way through your palate! But wait, there’s more! This refreshing India Pale Ale highlights the avid appreciation we have of the finer, bold nuances of our little green friends by imparting a delightfully playful nose and even livelier mouthfeel.

A herbaceously spicy, pungent, and dank brew. This fragrant beer imparts an initial blast of bitterness that gives way to sweet, toasty malts and a zesty citrus profile, then takes it up ten notches with a complex mélange of hops that won’t go down without a fight. What can we say? We’re proud of this one.

reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2017
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some hints of caramel and earthy tones. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with some earthy notes and a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a hop forward IPA that attacks the palate with hops then slowly mellows to a malty finish. Recommended.
