This beer pours a cloudy pale peach colour, with two fingers of foamy, pillowy off-white head, which settles evenly, leaving a perfect circumference of pulled curtain lace around the glass. Quite attractive. It smells of bitter grapefruit, tangy orange, and caramel cream. The taste is grainy, slightly spicy malt, a softer citrus flavour, and a bit of alcohol warming. The carbonation is prominent, but not intrusive, the body medium-light in weight, a bit prickly but still fairly smooth overall. It finishes still sweet, with the spicy citrus hops clamouring, and getting some attention too.
Wow. Maybe it's because I haven't had a proper IPA in some time now, but this really hit the spot, and went down way too well for its 7 points of booze. And I now know how to say 'rye' in Danish!

hop rising is a decent ipa not great or groundbreaking by any means.not much smell just booze ,the looks are good a little head and little lacing.the taste is decent not great but not bad either.look lets get down to it,the thing that makes this beer is its a great value,bargain is an understatement.for 8.89 a SIX PACK not 10 plus bucks a 4 pack you get a 9 percent double ipa thats pretty damn good,that alone makes this a good beer and other brewery should take a note like dogfish head,give us a full 6 pack if your gonna charge 11 or 12 dollars.thats my opinion anyways.look i know were not supposed to judge a beer based on its price but screw that this is the real world and price is and always will be a factor.
