Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: orange gold with thin white head and very cloudy

Aroma: piney and biscuity with slight tropical citrus fruit hints, strong aroma

Taste: very hoppy with strong pine and citrus explosion of flavor. Just enough malt to give a backbone to the beer, but this is unquestionably a DIPA. The hops really shine

Mouthfeel: full body but not chewy just a very full taste. Medium carbonation.

Overall: a good, not great, DIPA. Definitely held back by cloudy appearance and lack of malt character. But the beer definitely pals a punch with the american hops and provides a slight alcohol note on the finish.

Poured a dark golden body which was a little cloudy and had some lace patches/ring on top of a hoppy, citrusy aroma, that had some light fruit sweetnes (tropical?) and a touch of sweet malt. Medium-bodied with slight chewiness thanks to some bread malt, there is some minor malt and fruity sweetness packed in with a pronounced dry citric hop edge and finishes smooth and clean. A good IPA but at times it either came across a little bitter or or harsh so knocked a few points.
