3.45/5 rDev -12%
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.
