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!

22oz bomber with no date. it's hopulent release #66, so after i look it up i find out it's a year old. that's why it was so cheap.

crack it open and smell the dank vegetal scent of a hop cone's armpit. see the unfiltered goodness and foamy head. taste the boozy hop juice, and wish it were fresher.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; release #83, bottled 12/2/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, citrus rind, light peach, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of crisp citrus rind/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, citrus rind, light peach, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops with light-moderate malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and very sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA. All around good complexity of citrus/tropical hops with light-moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
