High Hops The Dark One
Can left in my fridge by a friend - smells of coffee, vanilla, chocolate milk - flavor is overly sweetened coffee with cream, but the coffee is also, like, burnt and steeped in the grounds too long - like when you don't push the plunger down on the press pot soon enough and your coffee gets a little harsh and bitter - what? - you don't use a press pot to make your coffee? - you are a philistine and should be ashamed of yourself.

High Hops Peach Larone
Can. Sweet peach aroma with notes of bready malt, honey and a bit of vanilla. Pours cloudy, pale golden colored with a thin white head that has some retention and lacing. Starts with bready malt and honey flavors. Finishes dry and smooth with sweet peach and vanilla flavors. Good, but the overall flavor doesn't seem to gel quite right.

High Hops Dr. Pat's Double IPA
Fat på Tivoli brewing. Riktig mycket malt o sötma o sedan kommer det gödsel. Trevligt. Smaken wow mycket söta torkade frukter o blött gräs seda svaga gödseltoner. Beskan är riktigt o nu menar jag riktigt bra. Härlig dipa.

High Hops Gluten Free IPA
Very light golden hue with a thin white foamy top Interesting nose of lemongrass and light floral tones and flowery hops, though light overall. Flavor is super light and nearly watered down with light herbal and leafy floral hop flavors and a weird bitter grain and rye/spelt grainy flavor that’s also watered down. Very odd and not very good tasting.

Very slightly hazy copper hue with a thin foamy rocky head. Semisweet creamy malty aroma with a bit of biscuit and gentle fruity ale yeast and light floral esters. Crisp semisweet flavor that’s vibrantly poppy with carbonation, a little bready toast and copper malt tones, smoothly balanced by a little leafy hop essences. Delightful.

High Hops Honey Habenero
Can. Sweet honey aroma with notes of habanero peppers and bready malt. Pours amber colored with a half a finger of tan head that has excellent retention and little lacing. Starts with sweet honey and bready malt flavors with a little bit of heat in the background. Finishes smooth at first with habanero heat almost immediately after with a lingering burn on the palate that stings the back of the throats and builds with each sip. Refreshing at first, but becomes overwhelming with each passing sip.

Can. Toffee malt aroma with notes of caramel, honey and a little bit of dried fruit. Pours clear amber colored with a thin off white head that has some retention and good lacing.

High Hops Dark Days of December Cookie Porter
Clear dark brown with a thin ivory head. Semisweet peanut butter and dry cocoa nose with a slight earthy twang. Bright semisweet brown sugar and cocoa flavor that’s kissed with peanut and lightly roasty dark earthy malts. Could be a bit fuller in body, as that’s the main detractor in this brew for me, but it’s pretty alright.

High Hops The Witty One
I had the green-dyed St. Pattys version so I’m not sure what the real appearance looks like, but since the head was super thin, I’ll assume it looked regular, if not tasty looking oh hazy and lightly golden. Light wheaty aroma that’s a little thin. Smooth quaffable wheaty and gentle corianderish flavor that’s very clean and gentle. Low fruity esters and a smooth bready finish.

Cloudy golden with a very thin white cap. Nice wheaty and slightly funky bubble-gum like tone on the nose with a little bit of earthy bready tones underneath. Smooth bready flavor with a little bit of an earthy tone and gentle grassy hop nuances with the slightest bit of ripe banana. Meh. Forgettable but clean and nice.

Hazy copperish gold with a sticky thin white head. Brilliant vanilla cake and gentle coffee laden nose. Lovely flavor that’s loaded with chocolate and vanilla cake with a smack of coffee and cream wth a full velvety body.

High Hops Honey Habenero
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy reddish gold with a medium fluffy off white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is vegetal chili spice and some sweet honey.

The flavor is sweet honey followed by a huge hot spice kick. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, lots of heat that plays nicely with the sweet honey.

High Hops The Dark One
From undated can it’s deep brown with a lasting head. Aroma impression is chocolate syrup and vanilla, buttery toffee and condensed milk. Medium bodied with low carbonation and chewy-silky malt, finishing thin and watery with remnant chocolate and milk and cereal breakfast stuff notes in the finish. Carbonation and mouth feel are kind of clumsy, it’s sweeter than it needs to be, but thankfully at least resembles chocolate malt and roast in the finish, unlike the like, which doesn’t smell anything like beer.

Deep heavy dark Amber/chestnut under a thin light beige cap. Big earthy and full nose that’s a little boozy and candi-sugar’d, some sort of deep fruity tone in there as well. Full candy like flavor that’s got raisin, toast, jelly, and rich syrupy Munich malt. Really delightful and full.
