12 oz. can poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep amber, kinda hazy. Decent cream head and nice wisps.
Smell - There's something off about it I can't pinpoint. Very malty. Caramel. A little bit of butterscotch. Citrus hop, but the off aroma is dominant.
Taste - Some citrus hop, but malt is dominant. Sweet caramel malt. Again that off flavor is really strange. Maybe it's diacetyl, but it's not the normal diacetyl flavor. Butterscotchy, but not in the traditional way.
Mouthfeel - Medium heavy, medium carbonation. Weird.
Overall - I wish I could qualify that off flavor better, but I can't. It's not a normal IPA.

On draught at the Richmond Arms, Hopadillo is a dull, dark copper with creamy off-white head leaving heavy, foamy lace.
Smell is sweet and malty, gingerbread, a hint of citrus.
Taste is also really malty, to much so for my taste, more in the English style. A bit more citrus hop flavor then the nose, moderate bitterness, pretty smooth, clean.
Mouthfeel is very nice, creamy, lighter then I expected for such a malty brew, in-spite of the nitro.
Drinkability is pretty good. It's a below average IPA flavor wise (much to malty and earthy for my taste), but the mouthfeel and overall smoothness bump it up a notch.

Got this beer in a mixed pack. Left me feeling very underwhelmed.
It poured lovely with a nice tight head that left a nice lace on the glass. The problem with the beer was that is was very one note, hops. But it's happiness wasn't a real highlight. There were too many hop variety that left the brew muddled and without direction. I wanted more from this beer. Once you got past the hops it fell off the map. It was just kinda watery.
I will skip this from now on.

12 oz can. no canned on date.
A: a good bit of haze on an otherwise very copper brew. head is comprised of big bubbles. frothy. retention is reasonable. big plumes of head retention left behind.
S: a decent malt richness. caramel. candied apple? oxidation? the hop aroma has seemed to worn out a bit. wish I knew how old this thing is...
T: a definitive oxidation is the first thing that jumps out at me. a whole heck of a lot of bitterness as well. the pine and the hop resins are muddied by the bitterness. finish is right back to the bitterness.
M: a real tingly carb, maybe slightly aided by the bitterness. medium body.
D: this thing is a bit too muddied and beat up for me to find it truly enjoyable. like I stated earlier, I wish I knew how old this can was. tastes like it has been around for a bit. anyway, gotta review what is in front of me and cant help they don't date.
