Notes/Commercial Description:
Hoptimization capacitors activated. Taste probe functions optimal. Aroma sensors in overdrive. Engage. Let this otherworldly IPA abduct the hell out of your senses. The gravitational pull of Hop Circle will have you searching the galaxy for another close encounter of the thirst kind. Resistance is futile.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

341ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO - 13$ for a 6-pack

Appearance - Clear gold/light copper with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, resin, citrus

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel, malts, and resiny/leafy hops. There is also some grapefruit and some grassy notes and a hint of an odd vegetable/corn husk flavour. It ends with a medium amount of bitter hop bitterness.

Overall – Just a few small adjustments away from a really good beer. They've done a good job at capturing the hop essence and it shines through in the beer. But there are some odd vegetable flavours mixed in unfortunately. Still a beer well worth a repeat purchase.
