*NOTE: The following review is my OLD review of Hop Wallop. The 2007 version of this beer changed drastically, into a more sweet, more typical DIPA. This is what it used to be like:
Appearance: Golden-yellow. Slightly hazy. Almost makes me wonder if I accidentally picked up a Prima Pils instead.
Smell: Fresh, hoppy, a little bit lemony.
Taste: Like a monsoon of lemon juice flooded a gigantic pine forest. But in a good way, somehow. It's absolutely bursting with lemon-zesty hoptacular awesomisity. Just a touch of malty sweetness, outweighed by a tangy golden-grapefruit (and lemon) bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Well-carbonated, easy-going down, and leaves no dry-mouth feeling.
Drinkability: Extremely easy to drink.. Yet it's a double IPA. How is this 8.5%???
It's like Prima Pils decided to turn into an ale and eat some Flintstones chewable lemon flavored steroids. And I absolutely love it. This beer is truly excellent. If you don't like it... well, frankly I don't think we can be friends.
About $11 a six-pack
Serving type: bottle
