COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The big wide world inspires our imagination and fuels our passions. Anything from music, film, beer, literature, architecture, food, engineering, poetry…all art forms essentially, including more beer. We steal with any and all things that possess the one value that we hold most dear: authenticity. The important thing of course is that ‘It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.’ So, what are we saying about this beer, exactly? We gave it our take. We took all there is to love about the IPA, got creative, dry-hopped it a lot, left it unfiltered and shared it openly in the hopes that in some way it may, in turn, inspire you. Hail to The Hop Thief, an original.

Rated on 11-16-2017. Draft. The appearance of this beer when served is a small head that is fully lasting, slightly hazy golden body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, some pine hops, tropical fruit, slightly earthy, and malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruit, some booze, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter lingering finish. It is quite tasty, worth trying and a beer that I would drink again.

3.7
drjoeng (1380) - SINGAPORE - NOV 4, 2017
9.8%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out amber. 14ºSRM. Nose is sweet and malty and pretty much what you’d expect from a contemporary IPA. Aroma of ripe tangerines and Mandarins. Hint of pine and some herbal spiciness. Mouthfeel is juicy. Palate is malty sweet, there are flavors of honey, orange flower honey, toasted barley. Hops flavors are grapefruit peel, cilantro which is enduring with a pine finish. Finish is medium with a pine sappy bitter.
