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.

3.51/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Moderately aggressive hand. No identifiable date.

A: Cloudy, golden orange with 1/2 finger of off-white head. Good sized chunks of visible sediment throughout. OK retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Fruit-forward hops, indistinct citrus. White grape. Occasional sour/off/lactic notes, that once noticed, were difficult to look past. Kinda catty. Good enough on the whole, but nothing is particularly standout.

T: Moderately assertive bitterness with a quickly developing, transient malt backbone. Returns to a pleasant bitterness and dry finish. Alcohol was light for 10% ABV, although a bit more pronounced at the bottom of the glass. Faint pine, grapefruit pulp linger in the aftertaste.

M: Low-to-moderate carbonation with moderate-to-fullish body. Pretty nice.

O: Does ok. A little muddled/unrefined, but certainly nothing bad. I drank it down.

Prost! (914 characters)

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) (424 characters)

Very nice hop build, appreciate the honey adjunct. Nice mouthfeel, a little hot on the ABV (90 characters)
