Clear, deep amber-copper with a frothy, white head. It has an earthy and floral hop aroma with some mild citrus. The full body has a slick, oily body with good carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter to start and turns more bitter throughout the finish.

I am rating this beer in comparison to other Imperial IPAs, which I would have to say this is not. I think this beer has more in common with a barleywine style like Lagunita’s Brown Shugga, as opposed to an Imperial IPA. The name is misleading; it has almost no hoppyness to it whatsoever. Being in California, we do not get Tyranena out here, and I ordered it from a company in Illinois. I am used to West Coast styles of IPA such as Stone Enjoy By, Russian River’s Pliny the Elder and Firestone’s Union/Double Jack. Those beers are more traditional IPA with a strong hoppy flavor, bite, and substance. Those beers pour with an orangish hue and have a impressive and powerful aroma. Imperial IPAs kick it up a notch and typically pour browner than regular IPA. They keep the hop flavoring, but lose some of the aroma. Hop Whore is neither of these descriptions. It pours brown, like a barleywine style. It has a sweet and strong molasses odor, and tastes like sorghum and yeast. I don’t get any hoppyness from this at all, which really makes me question the name. If this were described as a barleywine, it would be more appropriate, but lacks the oomph to compete with beers on that level. This beer is really a conundrum to me as I don’t know how to classify it, but it is a terrible Imperial IPA.

From 12 oz bottle but have had it on draft also. Aroma of burnt citrus orange. White head and pour a dark orange. Has citrus spruce mixed with orange taste. Hits the palate with a heavy bitterness at the front end and carries toward the back of your mouth with some resin. Very good effort for a Wisconsin Ipa in which this area is not known for imperial Ipa’s.

BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2014
12oz bottle pours a clear somewhat dark amber with an off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, mild perfume, malt, and a little hop. Flavor is a bit resiny bitter with a warm finish. Ok

rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Bottle from Ware House Liqour, Chicago. Clear deep golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, caramel, perfume, kinda aggressive hops. Hoppy caramel flavor, onions, bready, cream, some grapes. I did not like this one very much.
