Found this at zenos and picked up a 6er. was forced to drink 3 out of the bottle, gave 2 away and I saved one for a review.
Not a looker thats for sure. Bubbly white head that disappears pretty quickly. A very thin light brown amber colored body, that initially shows a lot of carbonation which tones down at a rapid speed to display a nice still beer.
Fresh citrus hops and pine hops pop out right away. Slight touches of caramel and sweet malts matched with sweeter grapes. This smells good doppelbock, very refreshing.
Great smooth caramel right from the beginning, with a hop kick that comes right at you, and doesn't leave you alone until you finish the sip. Overwhelmingly delicious citrus hops with some pine hops mixed in the background. Fairly sweet taste with a moderate texture and one that is fitting for this beer.
I could have a few more of these with out hesitation. Great beer, I really hope I can find more of this stuff.

Yeah, I liked this, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. Somewhat watery for a dopplebock I thought. Nice earthy and hoppy flavor up in the middle however. No real hint of the alcohol and not a whole lot of nose. This came recommended from the bartender, but I just wasn't that impressed. Had some nutty and woodlike notes, but overall, just not a lot of flavor. Nothing else really bad about it, the taste that was there was good.

A-Pours brown with dense, cushiony, white head. Head retains very well. Random lacing.
S-Hoppy but layered in its maltiness. Hops are green and grassy and the malt is toasty and caramelly. It's smells like a hopped-out Doppelbock. Maybe it's the yeast that preserves that Doppelbock personality.
T-Hops come on quite strong on the first half my first sip. Then, the maltiness and yeast character kicks in. After the pine agp d grassy and generically bitter hops wash over, the caramel and brown maltiness and unique yeast start talking.
M-Medium bodied. Quite bitter. Medium carbonation.
O-Smooth Hoperator is a very unique brew. A hoppy Doppelbock is a neat idea. Decently entertaining label as well.
