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.

Tiny pour from a bottle at a tasting. Consumed on 9-23-17. Pours hazy yellow with beige head. Citrus, lemon, and lemon peel scents. Nice and dry, funky taste. Bitter. My kind of a beer! Medium to full body. Smooth in the palate. Appropriately named and very impressive. 8.4.8.4.17=>4.1

madvike (3290) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle - Pours cloudy golden with a huge creamy off-white head. Nose is fairly sharp and boozy with lots of tropical fruity orange juiciness. Taste is the same, with lots of tropical fruitiness, pineapple, grass, pine, and a sharp booziness on the finish. It's imperial, so yeah--I guess I get the booziness, but at 8% I don't expect it to be quite this sharp. Decent, but not my jam.

VinegarStroke (441) - Napa, California, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Bomber from Tavour. This things a beast given its full of solids. If you don't manage the bottle there's a massive plug or sediment. Very cloudy with thick head and lace. It looks like pea soup. Massive hoppy lift. Can't actually smell malt due to the dominance of very fresh hops. Like smelling fresh hop cones. Very fresh and exciting nose. Palate is rich yet maintains freshness and balance. Very dry and extreme. Fun beer. I love this style.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2017
22oz bottle. Poured a muddy golden color with an averaged sized head. Tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, and some pine.

3.5
AirForceHops (7679) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 5, 2017
Bottled purchased at el bait shop, Des Moines Iowa. Bright hazy yellow liquid with light head. Aroma shows small tropical fruit, mango like, light herbal pine. Flavor follows. The alcohol is not really hidden. Maybe a tad hyped because this truly is middle of the road.

kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - SEP 2, 2017
Pours a very hazy yellow with a lasting foam. Strong pineapple and citrus aromas. Hop bitterness is strong and brings out the hop flavors well. Another good showing for the Goliath.

4.1
kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Cloudy orange pour at home from bomber. White Head. Juicy citrus and tropical. Like a New England IPA. Very good
