Served in a pint glass it has a 10 mm white head that leaves a little lacing. The color is clear amber. The aroma is of pronounced mouthwatering citrus hops. The taste is moderately citrus and bittered with some malt coming in. The feel is good with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a hazy copper orange color. A very small head forms and leaves little lace.
S: Citrus, piny, a lightly bitter hops.
T: Well balanced with some piny and citrus hops. Some sweet malt and bread crust lingers on.
M/D: A medium body, but a little over carbonated. Kind of watery as well. Not hard to drink. I had no problems finishing the pint, but I don't think I would get another pint in a sitting.

A decent IPA. One of the better offerings here, but that is not saying much.

Reviewed 11/4/2005 (Tap @ Two Rows Rice Village, Houston, TX):

Pours a golden brown body, but again, no head from the pour. A nice hoppy aroma with some slight citrus notes. Has a good hoppy flavor. Tasty, seems to be one of the better beers at Two Rows.

A hazy orange color with a thick white head that left some impressive lacing. It had a predominately pine aroma with a little citrus. This seemed to be reversed in the taste, which I thought was mostly grapefruit with just the faintest hint of pine. A little timid in the mouth, but all in all a pretty good beer.

Had this on tap a couple weeks ago and a buddy was gracious to bring back a growler this time around.
Pours a dark almost amber/copper color to me. From the growler there isn't the same aromatic head as there was fresh at the brewery.
Taste is just a bit off from the norm for this style to make it stand out some. The hops are present from beginning to end on this one for me. There is a nice bitter, crispness that starts off but it finishes with a delicious dryness and a touch of sweetness.
Good drinkability but for the style there but not quite a session beer for me. Almost too dry after a couple pints.

Bright, fresh, floral and perfumy hop aromas are the feature of this fine brew from Two Rows Houston. The flavor is equally big on hops, mostly crisp with citrus and slight pine notes, but it is not quite as clean as the aroma. Hopzilla (as it is now called) is unabashedly a hop-centric brew, to the extent that some may consider it to be out of balance. Of course, to a hophead such as myself, the notion of "balance" takes on a rather loose meaning, and I can appreciate a beer that isn't afraid to take an idea (in this case, hops) and run with it. There is a lingering astringency in the finish that detracts from the overall impression of this brew, but I think Hopzilla is Two Rows' strongest offering, and it is very unlikely to disappoint the serious hops enthusiast.

The color here is dark amber with average head and lacings. Actually by Two Rows standards the head and lacings are way above average. Aroma is hoppy, nothing extraordinary. The taste is pretty good, bitterness is dead-on, but the floral hops could taste fuller. There is also a mild roasted flavor. This is very drinkable and is one of the better Two Rows beers.

Pours an orange amber color with no head whatsoever and somewhat resembles a glass of iced tea. Nose is floral and citrusy hops with notes of herbal tea and a touch of pine. Taste is strong oily and bitter hops with notes of grapefruit rind and just enough of a malt backbone to hold things together. A strong bitterness remains on the back of the tongue in a lasting aftertaste. One of the better beers offered by Two Rows.
