COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with blood orange puree and fresh grapefruit zest, this beer is unlike any other. The richness of blood orange pairs nicely with the tart flavor of grapefruit and hops. We dry-hopped this beer Amarillo and other top secret hops. Why the name Hop Burglar? Level 5 clearance required for this information.

Bottle. Grapefruit hop citrus aroma with notes of blood orange, tropical fruit and light pine resin. Pours clear amber colored with a huge off white head that has excellent retention and a bit of lacing. Starts with grapefruit hop citrus and acidity with some tropical fruit flavor. Finishes dry with blood orange citrus and slight pine flavor with the citrus coating the palate after each sip for a nice, refreshing finish. Good stuff.

The beer looked nice, with a clear body, amber color, lively carbonation, and head that was durable, but a little small at one finger thick. After reading about the blood orange and grapefruit addition on the label, the lack of a strong citric smell disappointed immensely. The aroma was dull, mildly hoppy at best, and unremarkable. The taste was much better at delivering the fruit, providing a tangy, citric kick, in front of the mild hops. The body was medium dense, the alcohol nicely hidden, and the drinkability quite high. This was not a bad beer, but there are better ones with citric fruits out there.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of dank citrus hop notes, sweet and resinous. Taste follows, great fruity hop notes. Solid IPA from wicked weed.

From notes. Had this one at Dougs House with a get together with he and Chris on August 22. 12 oz bottle. The pour is a nice coppery golden color with a thicker ivory colored head that falls down slowly, leaving a pretty good lace. The aroma is definitely citrusy. There is a good blood orange and a light grapefruit. The hops are really dank and lightly malty on the back end. I like the resin bitterness. The flavor is a little better. There is more of a citrusy juiciness to it and a bitterness that comes with it. Its definitely a good thing. The malt fades a bit, but its still present. I love the juiciness and the equally intriguing bitterness. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly bitter and fruity finish. This is pretty damn tasty!

Tap. The look is golden to copper, cashew colored head, and cloudy. Nice fruity, pine smell. Tropical notes, more citrus. Good stuff overall. Fresh orange thing going on.

BeerdedDave (1531) - Beckley, USA - AUG 17, 2016
amber color; hoppy, citrusy aroma; great citrusy hop flavor with notes of orange and grapefruit; medium bodied, bready malt base; a nice hoppy beer with great citrus notes - just the right balance of citrus to accent the citrusy hps without overpowering
