Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a huge head of white billowy foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is lower on the malt smells and heavier on the hop. The lighter malt smells are of a light bready smell mixed with just a little bit of an orange aroma. The hop is rather big and bold with a big pine aroma being the heaviest, but having plenty of grapefruit and earthy hops mixed within. Overall the brew smells like it is on the drier side with a good hit of resinous hop.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier cracker like taste mixed with a lighter pine and grapefruit hop. The grapefruit gains a little bit of strength toward the middle, but maintains a lighter profile overall. The pine grows stronger and stronger as the flavor moves onto the end and is joined by some more herbal hop flavors along the way. Some earthy hops and a little bit of tangerine pop up at the end of the taste and mix with the drier cracker and other hop flavors, to leave a rather crisp and moderately resinous hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The moderateness of the carbonation and body is a nice balance for the crisp taste and easy drinkability, all while upholding all the hop flavors to a good extent.

Overall – A rather crisp and moderately resinous IPA that is rather easy to drink. A pleasant IPA overall.

Hopzone is a great beer, not too carbonated, but still gives off a great aroma. You can smell the smooth citrus and pine hop blend. Great drinkability, great mouthfeel, and a finish that leaves a smile on your face and wanting more. The fact that this beer is available in the can is awesome for the river. A favorite for cold winter nights as well as hot summer days.
Great balance in this beer, definitely a go to as far as IPAs go. Working in an airport, many people from around the country have told me this is one of their all time favorites...

A solid all-round IPA, excellent lacing and a gorgeous, slightly hazy gold color. The aroma was restrained, but the hops burst through in the flavor, big citrus and pine notes. I am guessing columbus and centennial, but I am not sure. It had a pretty typical, but very bright west-coast IPA flavor. The mouthfeel was crisp but also a little creamy, very smooth. The body was a little light. Overall, this is a very good IPA, I will definitely purchase it again.

Golden color in the glass with a nice head and excellent lacing on the glass. Nose is citrus hops. Tongue is a great well hopped IPA picking up citrus and pine... but lots of hops and in the double IPA territory. Good carbonation on the mouthfeel and lingers well after taste.
