This is one strange brew. At first sip, it seems entirely pleasing: an engaging floral crispness, with a flash of simple syrup sweetness. But it instantly turns strange. The simple syrup sweetness morphs to a honey-like . . . . wait, I was gonna go through the changes in detail. But I now see the whole problem is a metallic tinny flavor dominates and changes all the pleasing flavors into something muddled and uncertain. It attenuates the complexity, flattens it, mashes it down.

12oz bottle poured into 'The Lost Abbey' teku.

A: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a finger of cream colored head.

S: Lemon, grapefruit, and slight pineapple.

T: Bitter, perfume like floral and pine up front, followed by grapefruit and very slight tropical fruit. Bitterness hangs for a while at the end.

M: Med-light body, moderate carbonation. Clean and refreshing, but also seems a bit watery. Bitterness just keeps it from going down smoothly.

O: Best just to avoid this one. Not very drinkable due to the unpleasant bitterness and perfume like qualities.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 2/6

Pours medium dark cloudy amber, with thick heavy white foam. Loads of lacing. Sharp pine nose with floral hints. Punchy carbonated peppery spicy malt. A little pop backed by a tasty malt. Good IPA for sure.

Poured into a Bell's tulip on 7/26/12

111 12 Hopdinger printed on the bottle

A) Rustic orange color with faded gold highlights at the stem. One finger cap of foam dissipates to a bubble, soapy layer leaving some lace along the way.

S) Notes of sticky pine and zesty lemon comprise most of the aroma. Seems like it will be pretty dry. A spot of sweet cracker and biscuit dustings round out the aroma.

T) Hot dang, this is a bright and snappy hop profile ripe with lemon, pine and herbal hops. Modest bread notes quickly give way to a resin-laden, dry and prickly finish. Definitely hop-forward.

M) The feel is a nimble medium, made so by vigorous carbonation ripping across the whole of the palate. Very subtle granular undercurrent.

D) Hopdinger is a feisty creature. Well-constructed and easily drinkable. I'd reckon this is a treat on tap.
