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.

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

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!

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.

A: Golden honey-orange coloring had a murky, dense nature in the glass. Pale-yellowish milky 1/2 inch head provides a generous amount of lace despite its small size.

S: Perfumy fresh lemon-citrus scent with some sweet sugar coated pink grapefruit. Fresh tangerines, buttered croisant and some honey-wheat malt. Fade of lightly dry flowery citrus.

T: Flavor was sweet malt, lemony citrus hops that was wet with a spicy tropical bite and zesty grapefruit hopping with some orange peel. Hopping turns to a dry floral nature with some grassy pine helping. The level of hoppiness is moderately strong with a bready, toasted sweetness for backing.

M: Good carbonation, spicy hop brightness on the hold and tongue, malty lush depth turns to a frothy creamy nature on the hold.

O: Overall the malting was heavy handed here, spicy, acidic, with multiple tiers of hop flavor and depth with a creamy, frothy texture. Very good try, mid to B+ rating.
