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!

I'm kind of surprised by some of the lukewarm reviews of this beer. This is probably the third bomber I've purchased in the last four months and I've enjoyed each one of them. It's definitely a hop forward beer - nice citrus and piney smell (great in a tulip). It is a little murky in appearance but not muddy. It's got some body to it but still drinks really smooth. A well balanced DIPA.

If you are in the mood for a crisp clean IPA this isn't what you are looking for. If you want a hoppy meat and potatoes beer this is a good choice.

A: Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow to orange in color with very light notes of visible carbonation near the surface. The beer has a two finger tall creamy dark beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film with a large thick patch and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Very significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light amounts of caramel and bready malts upfront in the aroma of this beer but the dominant smell is that of the hops. There is a strong presence of grapefruit/citrus hops with a moderate amount of pine/resin hops and light notes of herbal hops.

T: Like the smell, this beer starts out with the flavors of bready and caramel malts with some light to moderate amounts of sweetness. On top of the malts, there is a significant flavor of grapefruit/citrus hops and a light amount of pine/resin and herbal hops. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness and light alcohol heat in the finish.

O: Another good beer from this brewery, I have been impressed with this brewery from Utah's offerings. There is a very nice hop smell and taste but the beer is not overly bitter - fairly easy to drink and the alcohol is mostly hidden.

Beer #37 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

I feel like this is the IPA I have been wanting to try, here in Utah. It's got the punch of flavor and hops all up in your mouth. That west coast kind of thing that, well, I kind of come to expect for the style. It's certainly not smooth or elegant, or exhibiting much subtlety, but I think it is pretty well done.
