Hopulent IPA is a big beer with lots of complex malt flavor and excessive hops. This beer will have changes to the grain bill and seasonal hop changes. The character of Hopulent IPA is over the top, too much of everything—a real HOP HEADS DELIGHT!

Nitro tap pint at Yard House in Glendale.
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a tight head. Great retention, thick lace lines coat the glass.
Lots of citrus smells, grapefruit, lemon, herbal hops.
Taste is of a solid IPA, citrus fruit, hop bitterness at the end. Good flavor with out being too sharply bitter.
Nitro gives a lower level of carbonation, smooth and creamy.
Overall, a solid DIPA, alcohol is hidden behind the hops, but still easy to drink.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip

A. A light amber hazy IPA with a white one finger head that subsides quickly.

S. Sweet malts fill the nose. Almost a candied fruit smell also. Smells like it will be pretty sweet. Smells like dehydrated dates.

T. Though the beer is self proclaimed hopulent. I think I'm getting more sweet caramel malts. I do get some fruity raisin like flavor. Very little bitterness. Finishes pretty clean.

M. Medium mouthfeel. Very little carbonation. I'd really like more suds.

O. I don't think it agrees with the name flavor wise but it is a good flavored beer. Could use some more bitterness. But I can't get passed the mouthfeel on this one. With some more carbonation I would have it rated higher.
