BEER INFO

Brewed by:
8th Wonder Brewery
Texas, United States | website

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Houston is a BIG city. And we think it deserves a BIG beer. Most people are familiar with India Pale Ales and West Coast IPAs, but now it's our turn to brand that cattle. And that cattle's name is Hopston. This hoppy brew is approachable and balanced; enjoyable year round and perfectly suited for the hot Texas summer. You're welcome and, yes, you may have another.

12 oz. can poured into tight nonic
(3/2/16 born-date printed on bottom rim of can)

L: dark orange/amber ... burnt orange; clear; hard pour renders thick cream head of beige foam, about 1-inch tall and looks sticky up top; keeps a thick collar; some lacing; keeps a 50/50 skin ... pretty beer

S: grapefruit, orange peel, very sweet ... sweet enough to detect bread malt ... green onion ... pine tree, pine tar but still very sweet

T: hop juicy ... grapefruit, orange peel, mango sweet ... some definite malt sweetness, almost bready; bitter at times, in the aftertaste consistently but also it can bite midswallow; malt might be slightly toasted -- the dark color of the beer suggests the possibility, but I can't say for sure; pine, pine needles ... as it warms, the pine seems to replace the grapefruit

F: midweight and some, it's almost thick; carbonation lightens it a little, but this beer has a bit of heft for its ABV

O: solid hoppy IPA with good citrus notes and a detectable malt backbone

Smell: A pleasing light fruity smell, which seemed to be a lime.
Appearance: Orange color, but the lighting was fairly poor at best.
Taste: Not a very bold one, but I got a hint of hops.

On tap at the 8th Wonder Brewery in Houston. Got a great deal, 3 beers and a cool ass glass for $15. Decided to start things strong with a Hopston, poured a pretty translucent golden-tinged copper with almost no head from the tap. Put it up to my mouth straight from the bar, get almost no nose, but the taste is super clean and semi-dry. Very sessionable ale, resin and malt along with a light body. I like it and wish it was available in Beaumont. Very good Texas IPA, up there with any I've had from other brewers. Cheers!
