Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DaveHack on 02-16-2014

Hop Suplex is juiced with six different hop varieties in the brew kettle and our slow, heavy weight dry-hop additions added by HopfenKubel. Hop Suplex Ale features Saucony's widest range of hop varieties and our most complex hopping schedule. Hop Suplex weighs in at 10% ABV compliments of a hefty grain bill, but a dose of honey balances the flavor and compliments the floral and strong citrus tones of grapefruit, melon, and gooseberry provided from our favorite selection of hops.

Pours a hazy orange amber with a medium lasting off white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and floral notes, some yeast and caramel malt. Taste is sweet caramel malt, citrus orange flavors with some moderate hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. The finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, sweet citrus and orange flavor with a floral citrus hops bitterness for balance. Overall a good drinking flavorful DIPA.

Poured into a snifter

A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head that reduces to a smaller layer, a little bit of sediment floating around

S- big emphasis on tropical fruity hops with notes of mango, pineapple, guava and orange. It actually smells like guava nectar, unusual for an IPA, but nice

T- tropical emphasis continues through to the taste, with highlights of guava and mango. Slightly piney hop bitterness, sweet and sugary malt lead to a fruity finish with lingers of more guava on the close

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish

O- a different take on a DIPA, but if you like tropical fruity hops, this is definitely worth a try. Bonus points for the awesome label, OOOOHHHH YEEEEAAAH!
