Grumpy Troll Hoppa Loppa IPA

From 7/8/13 tasting notes...

Enjoyed on tap. Served chilled in a shaker pint glass.

A) Golden Amber with a nice frothy white head, which settled to a thin dusting. Ample lacing...

S) A good amount of citrus with a hint of peach and mango. A bit of grass and pine too...

T) Nice balance... Follows the nose. Finished with some grapefruit peel zest.

M) A lighter medium body with moderate carbonation. Pleasing aftertaste and finish.

O) I found this to be an above average IPA, and would be happy to recommend it's consumption. If you find yourself in Mount Horeb, WI, stop by the Grumpy Troll and give it a shot.

Paired with the rueben sandwich, and sweet potato tots. This was also quite tasty...

Serving type: on-tap

A- Not much of a head. What is there is white. Body is a clear dark golden color. Leaves some good spiderweb lacing.

S- Faint PNW hop smell.

T- Good malt backbone. Nice bitter hop IPA finish...probably the best part of Hoppa Loppa.

M- Mouthfeel is on the thin side, medium carbonation.

D/O- An average IPA from Grumpy Troll. I feel a few tweaks (better head retention, aroma) and it could be very solid.

A- deep orange. Almost looks like an oktoberfest. True white baby head that quickly dissipated and left some very sticky lacing. Looks like your standard ipa.

S- hops hops hops. Smells of tropical fruit and a bit of sweet malt. Awesome aroma.

T- wow. The hops are in the spotlight. Little to no malt flavor present besides a hint of bready sweetness. But the hops show rich but balanced flavors of grapefruit, mango, lemon, pine, and grass. This covers all the hop flavor profiles from herbal to fruity. Very nice.

M- light to medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Very slick and oily. Very nice.

O- a great ipa for hop lovers. Exceptionally fruity and smooth. Not overly bitter, it highlights hop flavors over bittering power. I really enjoyed the grapefruit and pine flavor, but people who like super balanced ipa's might miss the maltyness. Its not present in this hop bomb.
