Three drafts at Bomb Shelter in Milwaukee... wow, this is great stuff. Now if only O'So would bottle it. Hop Whoopin' comes across like the IPA version of Lupulin Maximus DIPA, coming out next week for it's annual release.

Hazy saturated orange pour, very creamy texture to the foam. It fluffed up in a convex dome above the surface of the glass. As it was sipped, concentric rings of lace formed. The head never faded, very impressive.

Intense tropical and citrus aroma, mango, melon, orange, resiny and catty. Very dank and resinous, a true hop bomb. I found myself just sitting there inhaling it, even when not taking a sip.

A rush of bitter hop oil, raw orange peel, pure lupulin essence. Dry in the finish, but almost sweet in the middle from the concentrated citrus, and to a lesser extent the malt in the background. Light bodied, low to medium carbonation. Pure hop juice delivery vehicle. Amazing stuff that hopefully gets bottled one day. (953 characters)

I'm told the only spot you'll be able to enjoy this brew is at the brewery in their taproom. Hopefully that changes because this is a brew everyone should be able to sample... even if you can't make it to P-lover.

A - Red body with a thick, frothy off-white head. It leaves a very nice lacing as it recedes.

S - The aroma of hops are prevalent. They consist of citrusy grapefruit.

T - The flavors match the scent. Tons of citrusy grapefruit hops. This is a great tasting IPA. Loaded with hops but well balanced against the malt to create and allow the hops to shine rather than overwhelm.

M - It feels as a good India Pale Ale should... thick, sticky and even slightly chewy.

~ This is a very good beer and I hope the folks at O'so continue to brew it. If they don't, now is the time to head on over to get your Whoopin'! (827 characters)
