Probably the worst beer I've had as of recent. I got it in a make your own 6 pack from Wal-Mart here in town. It just tasted dusty and skanky. It may have been expired, but I really try to check that before I buy any beers. Color was fine, but everything else about this beer just stunk, literally.

Appearance-wise the beer does well, with a nice, clear copper color and a small, fizzy cap, that admittedly does dissipate quickly, but hey, I can forgive small nuances like that, providing the beer tastes good.

Aroma is closer to a brown ale. Malt forward with a touch of breadiness, and just a hint of any hop character. Somewhat minerally, almost like blood....scary.

The flavor is quite harsh...I'm not sure if this brewed with particularly hard water, or what, but the only hop presence I can really detect is a harsh sort of astringency. Don't get me wrong the bitterness is quite tame, however due to the overall harshness of said bitterness, an almost "metallic" character, it renders the beer quite unpalatable. Aside from the harshness, there isn't really any hop flavors and the malt flavors certainly take front seat, primarily of a caramel variety with a slight husky graininess.

Egad. This is atrocious. I can honestly say I will never ever buy this beer again...nor will I willingly except any for free, and that's saying a lot since I'll even drink BMC if it's free.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Poured from a bottle into a stemless wine glass

A- pours orange with a one finger white head that fades pretty quickly. Tons of sediment lingering in the beer as well. Looks like someone just went ahead and dumped some sand in there...lovely

S- very weak aroma of grassy hops. Completely a non-starter

T- there's some light piney flavor going on, with no real bitterness, citrus, or anything to justify this as a tasty beer

M- thin bodied

O- pass on this. "Hopped Up" must mean one ounce per barrel has opposed to the half ounce in their cream ale

This beer looks so novelty it's killing me, you know when you look at a new beer and it looks so bad that you know not to buy it. But there's that sick part of your brain that wants you to try it it. Pours a brilliant orange tinted copper color with a slightly off white head billows thick and forms nice scattered lacing as it dwindles. Aroma hints of caramel and stale hops slightly herbal/citric/and dank weed with a mix of stinky feet. Flavor is horrible, cardboard grainy water with bitter hop pellets blending through each sip finishes with a bit too much garlic. Mouthfeel has medium to light body with moderately heavy carbonation flowing through. Overall if you like hops and you like good beer, you want enjoy this novelty offering.

This being a local brewery there was a lot of hubbub about the quality of the beers. Unfounded, in my opinion. I always start with the IPA offering at any brewery because that's my penchant. This one was light in color with larger carbonate bubbles. The first taste was weak so I tried another after waiting a bit to see if it needed to settle. No luck. Weak malt and weak hop taste. No mouthfeel to speak of. Would not try again and I'm wondering who I can give the remaining bottles from the 6 pack to!

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

The color was golden and it was very clear with a soapy and creamy, bright white head. It had a very light earthy hop aroma with a nice malty smell.

The body was light and watery, and the mouthfeel was slightly carbonation crisp. The carbonation was the only thing noticeable up front, followed by a bit of a bready maltiness. The hoppiness seemed a bit earthy and piney, but also kind of stale.

This would probably go with almost any food, as the flavors were fairly neutral - pizza, burgers, fries, etc. The hop flavor was no where near as big as the name would suggest, so the hop flavor wouldn't get in the way of any other flavors.

I'm not sure how long it was on the shelf before I got it, and I suspect it may have been there a while, as the hop flavor was not as big as the name suggested. It even tasted a little bit stale. While it was a bit watery, and easily drinkable, it's likely not one I would try again if given the chance.

To even put this in a category with other IPA's should be a crime but here we go:

A- Dark golden color with a head about an 1/4 inch, that had no retention and created no lacing. Some carbonation occurring throughout.

S-Not much here a faint smell of hops

T- Had a very light hop taste that was almost kind of watery.

M- Pretty light in the mouth with little carbonation occurring.

D- If your new to IPA's then this might be a beer for you other wise steer clear of this one. IPA fans will be highly disappointed you spent money on this.

Horney Goat Hopped up 'N horney pours a almost hazy golden color, with very little head. The smell is skunky, and smells like a cheap euro lager. The taste is watery, pale, more malty then hoppy. Not very good carbonation, not too easy to drink, not sure I would like another, leave an offesnive taste. Overall this is just an avoidable one, tastes cheap, I hate to not like these really small brews, but this one isnt good.

Poured a clear amber, not a fantastic head, disappeared leaving no trace.

A real buttery note to the smell, with grapefruit in the background.

Some grapefruit, but surrounded by butter, grass, and a musty finish.

Highly carbonated, yet mouthfeel somewhat thin.

This was just missing on all counts for me. I wasn't impressed.

12oz bottle into pilsner glass, almost didn't buy because of the corny name.

Look is a brownish orange-amber with a small head that fades to a ring. Smell is mostly plastic. Don't know what happened here- there are cascade hops, but behind alcohol and an offensive plastic smell. Taste is underwhelming as well, hops are dull and medicinal, malt is roasted and enjoyable, but muted.

Weak, should have followed my instinct and avoided.
