The fabled Hop-a-lot-amus is a mythical creature. The heavy hop character of this Double IPA is as subtle as a "river horse" in your lap, but finishes like a hippo in a tutu. Enjoy! 93 IBUs

Pours amber with a thick white head. Smells of spruce and grapefruit. Taste is sweet and bitter, caramel, spruce, citrus.

Very interesting Imperial IPA; I can't say I've had an unfiltered one before. The pour is quite murky and deep orange, with an off-white head. Good, deep flavor that is unique in its heaviness -- the hop notes and bitterness are there, but not in their usual spritely form. Unusual overall, but nevertheless quite good. Having a hippo on the label is apropos for sure! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

light sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, oily feel, average carbonation, brown, cloudy, minimal head, Not too strong on the hops; a little malty almost. Strong, but quite drinkable...watch out

On draft at the Fulton Grand on NYE 2012-2013. Dark red pour. Malty beer with earthy hops, yet very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel.

On draft at Good Beer. Rich, floral IIPA aroma. Full-flavored and muy hoppy, with good balance and lots of malt. Really good!

JStax (6349) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to RamyG4. Pours a hazy copper color with a large froth of orangy, white foam. Decent lacing. The aroma has notes of oranges, grass, and other floral notes. The taste is earthily bitter and dry. Like a mouthfull of dirt. Sort of sweet toward the backend. Sticky mouthfeel. This is a nice, calm Double IPA. It would make for a good introductory beer.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy orange with an obscene amount of off-white head that leaves tons of sticky lacing. The aroma is pine forward but there is a little bit of citrus in the back end. Taste is bitter up front with a big grapefruit sweetness on the finish.. there is some lingering dryness from the hop bite. The palate is a little sticky for a DIPA but definitely drinkable.

Bottle. Not a terribly exciting of balanced DIPA. Citrus fruit and grass aroma. Pours a hazy dark orange almost copper. Pretty heavy mouth feel from both malt notes and alcohol. Lots of earthy hop character and a somewhat lasting bitter finish. Nothing remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2012
bottle. amber with some sediment and small head. more bitter than hoppy. drinkable, but not much more than that. alcohol reasonably well masked.
