Beer added by: JackSkerry on 04-16-2014

Programmed with 5 West Coast American hops, HopBot IPA brings out waves of absurd citrus and tropical aroma and flavor.

The Citra, Centennial, Mosaic, Summit and Willamette hops are perfectly balanced by a solid malt backbone.

Average IPA. Many others that are better.

This is a very malty IPA...typical of most east coast breweries trying to copy the awesomeness of west coast style. This beer comes of more bitter and malty and unfortunately does not get the perfect attributes of citra hop. The color was a slightly hazy amber with thin white head and no lace. This beer is ok nothing to rave about. I would not try this again.....falls well short of the mark for me.

Bright amber with rimming pocked taupe head that rings.
Drooly herb and Lemonhedz nose.
Thread of toffee and toast crust then dried rind, grapefruit oil, kiwi, pineapple, orange and rosin hops, with a touch of burnt grass.
Orange Swedish fish ending and long barky linger.
Med-lt, oily, round.

-- Citra, Centennial, Mosaic, Summit and Willamette.

Sweet malts and a nice, shifty hop bill: Citra definitely, some Willamette wood, too, Summit for a bit of dank and Mosaic fruit salad. The malt and the fruitness make it a bit syrupy, though, as it warms - the IBUs need to be upped at this strength. And I wonder if it’s not a bit over-dry hopped. But at this price (Thanks, Moosehead!) I’d go again. Better than anything even vaguely macro has a right to be.

Pours a clear amber color, off-white head is fine and retains well.

Smells of buttered biscuit malt and fresh piney hops. Hint of maple.

Tastes of buttered toast, caramel, a hint of roast, and piney hops with a tinge of citrus.

Feel is medium to full with a tingly carbonation on the tongue.

A very nice IPA with some good body and a slightly richer flavor than most of the IPAs I've had. Pretty tasty and worth a try.
