COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Hunter IPA harnesses the complex flavors of just-picked hops through an all-new method of steam distilling wet hops before they even leave the fields. This revolutionary technique captures and intensifies the natural flavors, creating a unique and intensely aromatic beer. Our custom process gathers pure hop oil which, when combined with traditional whole-cone hops in the brew kettle and in our Hop Torpedo, makes for an incredible IPA experience.

I was curious when trying this whether these different techniques do anything to the IPU--whether they remain theoretically the same but the hop flavors are more intense? Dont understand the science / brewing techniques of it. But at any rate, this beer gives the feeling of having a strong hop dimension, but it is very drinkable and well balanced, and the bitterness is tame in the finish. Good IPA. Bottle.

GoufCustom (1944) - HONG KONG - MAY 21, 2017


355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Clear golden orange colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which last for 1 minute; Excellent sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, orange, strong fresh hop cones, strong floral, sugar, strong pine, resins, strong spices, bread, lemon peels and grass. Very nice!

Taste: Mid to light sweet full Ale malt, with strong Amberness, strong grapefruits, caramel, floral, molasses, strong spices, pine, resins, hop oil, herbs, dry biscuits, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Medium body. Slick and quite creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full Ale maltyness in a rich background, full of oat creaminess. Strong fresh hop cones and oil, dynamic yet not overtly bitter like those cheap hop extracts, with strong grapefruits, pine and ooze. Flowery herbal with moderate sweetness. Very biscuity with strong lemon to round. Excellent!

Hoppiness: Passion fruits, orange, fresh hop cones, strong floral, strong pine, resins, strong spices, lemon peels and grass in nose. Grapefruits, floral, spices, pine, resins, hop oil, herbs, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - oily yet fresh - is strong for a lasting, high astringent herbal grassy malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Citrusy hoppy and nice strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This ones impressed instantly with strong fresh hop cone characters hop-fruity aroma, spicy herbal taste and topped with dynamic bitterness. The Ale-base is rich, very smooth with just the right sweetness. A well-executed IPA. Highly recommended!

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle @ Fiddlers. Pours a clear golden beer with an unstable fluffy white head on top. Aroma is grassy, piney and juicy. Nice fresh hoppy notes, fresh grapefruit and a nice, subtle caramellish malty backbone. Flavor is firmly on the more bitter side of things, juicy hops shine trough, malty backbone as well. The hop forwardness is really nice and well balanced troughout the entire palate. Full in flavor, long in bitter aftertaste. Nice one.

MacBoost (1870) - Victor, New York, USA - APR 30, 2017
Drank a 6 pack of this. It was fairly bitter straight out of the bottle. Decent enough but a little too palate shredding to #daydrink at noon with mixed company.
