Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is artificial citrus and malt. Just didn't find anything exciting here.

If you don't like the flavor of IPAs but want to drink them anyways, this is the beer for you. Super malty--hits the mouth like a bottle of soy sauce. I tried it a few times and it's OK.But if I can only drink Oklahoma beers, I'll stick with my Prairie and my Coop f5 and my Marshall.

3.75. Damning with faint praise? Not necessarily. The Hanson brothers have brewed what they like and Mustang Brewing did a fine job delivering an easy drinking and accessible ale. People are rating this beer poorly because the name promises "hops" but the beer is really more balanced and malt heavy (which is also out of vogue). Lighten up, its just a name. Also this beer ignores the trend toward highly attenuated and PNW citrus and pine hop oriented IBU warheads. Earthy, spicy hops played in balance with strong malt flavors, ample residual sweetness and ale yeast that contributes some detectable flavor. What a concept. This beer is a bit of a throwback to the 1990's interpretation of ESB and Pale Ales. (Before the Hansons were of legal age to purchase or manufacture. Hmmm.) Now, on to the review.

Pours out to a permanent and mildly lacy buff head and hazy orange copper color. Aroma is malt dominant with caramel and toasty malt, some slight fruity esters from an assertive and very British ale yeast and spicy/earthy hop undertones. Flavor delivers on the malt aroma with a sweet malt front, pecan-like middle and a fruity and bittersweet subtle hop finish. Mouthfeel is big for the style with a sugary fullness and alcoholic warmth from the 7%ish abv. Overall a malty, tasty, very un-trendy pale ale in my opinion, more of a traditional ESB on the high end of the gravity scale.

Had it at the Disney Food and Wine Festival.... With a name like Mmmmhops you would think it would have a bit more than a hop character to it. Tastes more like an Amber than a Pale; notes of toffee, caramel.... A bit on the sweet side...
Mediocre (at best) band.... Mediocre beer

2.97/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a hand glass.

A: Amber hue. Pervasive rising effervescence. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, whitish head. Settles slowly, leaving behind some dry residue as it does. Pervasive lacing.

S: Hops, honey, nuts, and dish soap.

T: Hops, rubbing alcohol, cotton candy.

M: Lightly hoppy, synthetic sweetness, rubbing alcohol finish... that sadly, lingers on the palate.

D: Sessionable... if you can finish it.

Atmosphere is nice. Lots of effervescence, great head, and persistent lacing. Nose is hoppy with sweet and nutty components and a distinct odor of soap. Bitter and synthetically sweet with a really off-putting finish. Overall, this is a fair quaff.

Pours a cloudy, copper color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt, pale malt, hops, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight hops, pale malt, and a hint of yeast. Overall, poor appearance, weak aroma, weak body, and poor blend.

Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with a thin, creamy off-white head. Aromas of toffee, and a hint of citrus peel. Taste begins with some spicy black pepper, then toasted oatmeal. After that is a bit of citrus peel. The finish is of very ripe apricots with some clean bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty rich and smooth. Overall a good pale ale, that tastes more like an amber to me.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is decent and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Really disliked this one. Big ol malt bomb right here. Super sticky and one-dimensional. Not recommended.
