COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First in our limited Hop Patrol series of aggressively hopped and auspicious ales, HOPSMACK! is here to rescue your palate. Giant aromas of pineapple and tropical fruit jump from this enticingly complex double IPA. True to its name, this brew delivers a heavy smack of dry hops and a double dose of bitterness in the finish.

tmoreau (3910) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2016
Shared bomber poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of white, head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was dank, with a mixture of tropical fruit, lemon curd/yogurt, resin, and jungle-like greenery. Medium bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste was earthiness, greenery, dankness, and lingering bitterness. Conflicting nose, somewhat, but not totally resolved in the flavor. Appreciated the contribution to the tasting, but not a repeater for me.

AWISLguy (2706) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2016
650ml bottle from Discount in Waukesha, shared with the big boys. Cloudy yellowish pour, "east coast style" E would say. Aroma has big hops, grass, citrus.Lovely! PseudoSue plus ... Taste is of sweet fruits, big citrus, light pine and light caramel. Fruity hoppy, without the grassy promise of the nose. Still tasty. Medium bodied. The blend is good. The carbonation is constant. There is little alcohol presence. Finish is sweeter than bittersweet. Wow! Not expecting something this good. Very nice! 16
