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.

Appearance is a cloudy brownish straw color with a finger of head that dissipated rather quickly, but left a decent amount of lace behind. The nose is distinctly hoppy. This offering certainly delivers on the hops, but it proves to be a one trick pony. It is very unbalanced and not drinkable beyond one or two glasses. Hop bombs are fine by me, but I generally hope for them to be something more complex than death by hops.

I don't think this beer gets a perfect rating. But I do think it should be rated at least at 90 so I am overrating this to bring the overall up a little bit. This is a solid double IPA, better than most and at a good price. Smell reminded me of a Pliney or other heavy resin IPAs. Defintely worth buying and drinking. I will be snagging this one again.(this is my first review, sorry if this isnt the correct way to do this)

Very nice hop build, appreciate the honey adjunct. Nice mouthfeel, a little hot on the ABV
