On-tap. 1/2pt Glass. Enjoyed on mar´13. Pours orange brass in color, clear appearance. Creamy foam shows fairly good retention & leaves a thin lasting on top as well as spots on sides. Aromas of mild toasted malts, tropical fruits – mango & grapefruit- & hints of resins. Enters smooth bitter then a creamy malting develops while underneath but sharp bitterness flows all over. Medium but flavorful body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Dense & oily texture. Citrics in the middle & gentle astringency. Very well balanced malt vs hop mouthfeel. Long bitter finish. Resins on the aftertaste rounded by peppermint hues. Refreshing, delightful & easy drinkable since ABV is well camouflaged.

APPEARANCE - Opaque reddish brown. No head whatsoever, but a little lacing

SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Piney and very sweet, fruity, despite absence of head.

TASTE - A tasty ale. Well-balanced, hoppy, piney, and very sweet. ABV pretty well-hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Nearly no carbonation, viscous and syrupy.

OVERALL - I really prefer Imperials with some carbonation. Without it, it doesn't seem like you are drinking beer at all. However, this is a tasty ale.

Incredibly powerful and with a smooth bitter finish, Spain introduces an IPA that could have just as easily come from America's West Coast. Citrus, spice, tropical and orchard fruit flavors bound with each and every sip.

HopDoom's frothy and creamy appearance simply glows with a peachy apricot color and a firm veil of haze. Bone-white and somewhat fluid, the beer's stubborn cap situates on top the beer with long-lasting retention, fueled by ample carbonation and laces the glass with broken ribbons as the beer trails.

Vivid aromas of tangerine, red grapefruit and lemon drops weave in a sweeter honey and caramel tone from malt sweetness just as the hops open up further with the scents of mango, apricot, passion fruit and pineapple. Before long, apples, pears and berry like twang rise as the beer warms and reveals more and more secrets.

To taste, the beer starts of with a light biscuity sweetness, woven together with light caramel and honey that will give its hoppy fruit character a plumper, riper and more zesty taste. Intensifying fruit flavors grow over the middle palate with that tropical, citrus and orchard varieties found in the nose. Its malty-dry finish allows hop bitterness to grab hold with a smooth but spicy taste. Lightly minerally and acidic- the taste is even reisling-like in finish.

Remarkably, the ale starts with a creamy but fluffy texture that dissolves off the palate like cotton candy. Its light grassy astringency is well hidden behind citrus acidity and prickling carbonation. It has quite a bite from its high alcohol, warmth and dryness.

HopDoom is a definitely a formidable Imperial IPA that works hard to retain the dry, hop-dominant character of standard IPAs but without allowing the added malt sweetness or body to interfere with its drinkability.
