"Hop Sauce 8.2%
A nice golden color with aromas of pine,
citrus and some earthy spice notes was
created using 1800 lbs of English pale
malt and over 100 lbs of hops! Hopsauce
is full of hop flavor at about 100 IBUs.
This is what hop lovers dream about.
Get hopped up on the sauce!"

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grapefruit juice, citrus zest, and metallic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but it seems fairly old and the metallic flavor I am getting isn't very pleasant.

Serving type: bottle.
