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!

Got this at Whole Foods in DC. Release 78. From notes.

A - Poured slightly dark gold and bright. Good carbonation with two fingers of thick fluffy off white head. Great lace rings and a half finger of retention.

S - Citrus, sweet syrup, pineapple core, sweet malt.

T - Booze up front, prickly pineapple, sweet fruit, pine resin, alcohol was a bit much.

M - Good carbonation, medium to full body, boozy resinous finish was a bit harsh.

O/D - Too much for me. Possibly too old but the booze wasn't hidden at all and it makes it harsh with the hops. Hard to finish.

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.
