COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring. Also available bottle conditioned all year.
Hopping Mad uses just one single hop variety, Progress, to achieve its appealing aroma, its pleasingly bitter taste and its delightful sparkle. We believe the result is uniquely enjoyable. So did the judges at the Beauty of Hops Awards, who awarded it a Silver Medal.

At first I wondered where the hops came in. Then I found them in a rather perfumy aftertaste. Not unpleasant. A lot of sweetness on the palate too. But guess you'd call that 'balanced'. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Light palate, pretty dry. Astringent hops - dry bitterness dominates. The fruit, when you get to it, is orange with a little mango. Dry bitter finish with minerals.

De Bierkoning, Amszterdam. Szp, vilgos vrsrz szne van, tetejn egy kzepes, tejsznhab szerűen krmes habbal, ami hamar vkonny vlik, de az vgig kitart. Illata fs, lesztős, kiss zldsges s zld komls. ze vajas, zld krts, gymlcss, malts, gygynvnyes, amin lassan teljesen eluralkodik a kesernys koml. Vkony teste van de nem tűnik vizesnek, kzepesen buborkos. Utze gymlcss, hatrozottan keserű s igen szraz. Most egy j kis hzi pizza utn, igen jlesik, szinte rzem, hogy tpi szt a bőven adagolt, zsros holland sajtokat a gyomromban. Kellemes.

harrisoni (17572) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Cask handpull at County Hotel Ashford. Copper colour slight haze lasting cream head. Yes quite a hoppy bitter. In fact the hops are excellent. Very good butter that is bitter and hoppy. Nice. Could do with a bit more backbone but it has some ok bischit and that finishing hop us fresh and biting. Good

Hopping mad?!? This is about as hoppy as a bag of frogs who have had their legs systematically pulled off by a small child.
