Horace Hop Wallop headed West a broken man. For it was a certain Miss LuLubelle Lager that had left him, thirsting for more. Drawn by wild tales of the riches of the gold mines, Hop pressed on westward. His last nickel spent on a prospecting pan, Hops hunger and thirst got the best of him. Two fistfuls o barley and three of some wild and wayward hops tossed in the pan with some clear water was to be his meal. But sleep overcame him and he woke to a bubbling, cacophonous concoction. Overjoyed with the beautiful ale that he had made, Hop realized the secret of the green gold he had discovered in those fresh hops. Celebrated far and wide, Hop Wallop lives on in this vivid ale with his words, "hoppiness is happiness." As our annual homage to the fresh hop harvest, Hop Wallop is a fragrant experience that delights the tastebuds. Pure gold of color, this ale offers its heady bounty of hops to the adventurous of taste. Bold, bracing and surprisingly refreshing for a strong ale, Hop Wallop lives up to its name and legacy.

bottle from goldtwins. gold maize color, looks nice enough to drink! soft balanced aroma, not monstrous hops as most IIPAs. quite soft and quite balanced in the flavor as well--easily more drinkable that most IIPAs but its not as bold as some others. i would gladly drink tons more of this!

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Its about time I got a crack at this one! Golden amber colour. Zesty citrus hops and dark malts. Hoppy flavour, surprsingly lean body. Evenly balanced and with floral hoppiness. My type of Imperial IPA.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Bottled. Light orangy yellow and fairly clear. Some hop aroma, but not as in-your-face as I would expect. I think this bottle may be a bit old tho. Nice bitter bite all through to the after taste. Good sweet malty mouth too, but seems to be missing some flavor hops as well. The beer also seems thin for an IIPA.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Light golden in colour. Aroma was pretty much a one dimensional hop assult. Flavour was all hops, pine, grapefruit and some earth. Medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a huge hop bitterness. This beer is too hoppy and one dimensional for its own good.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2005
light citrus and slight grassy aroma, light straw appearance with a big frothy white head, sweet and hoppy with lingering bitterness and an intense palate destroying slight yeasty finish

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Floral aroma with grapefruit, orange, and cotton candy. Appears a crystal-clear gold, with notable effervescence of medium-sized bubbles and with a thin head of pure white. Flavor of crisp grapefruit overlaying biscuity malt, ending in a nice well-balanced hoppy finish. Palate is moderately thin and quite refreshing with an appropriate amount of carbonation. Overall, this beer is much greater than the sum of its parts, primarily resulting from the incredible balance that it displays. My thanks to TheBeerCellar2 for this fine brew.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Hazy golden orange with a large frothy off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine/resin, toast and honey. Medium velvety body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of resin/pine, grapefruit, honey and toast. Lightly alcoholic. Long bitter finish. A little overdone, but I guess that was to be expected. Hop Devil is much better. Good.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Bottle. Pours a translucent yellow/orange with a minimal head. Aroma is big and citrus. Mouthfeel is full bodied with good carbonation, taste starts bitter and becomes very bitter and as you might imagine ends with a long bitter aftertaste. I dont know about this one. Id like to think of it as a slightly over the top IPA because its not up there with the best of the I2PAs....not even close.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 25, 2005
light herbal hops with a light dry carmelly malt aroma. Pale orange color, mildly cloudy. Very Orange, glowing, light crystal, very citrusy, mildly bitter, very late vanilla. Round even taste, beautifully crafted. Very soft sweetness lingering beneath the big hops, nice body.
