A thick burnt orange color, this beer is nonetheless quite bright, even in its darkness. It is translucent, certainly closer to opaque. The head is sandy-colored and tops at just less than one finger, dropping with some time to a thinnish foam that nonetheless leaves lots of creamy lace.
The hops pour out of the nose as soon as the bottle is opened, sweet and bitter at the same time and very juicy. It features lots of orange notes including some peel but with an almost jammy nature to it. A slight note of pine strengthens the bitterness as some caramel sweetness pulls through.
The taste is fruity and spicy up front before some grains in the middle and the malty sweetness coming in to pull back the hops. It's mildly floral at one point and finishes with a bit of citrus zest lingering with a bit of cracker.
The feel is crisp in a medium body with a nice fresh brightness. It has some smoothness in the middle and finishing well even as it goes semi-dry, not losing the creaminess it obtains after the nibble up front.

Looking at some of the positive reviews, it's hard to believe I'm tasting the same beer. This is so focused on the caramel malt aroma and flavor that the hops just don't play much of a role. I know this is billed as a APA instead of a IPA, but with a name like "Hop Trip", I expected much more complexity from the hops. Instead, the malt dominates and is just too sweet in my opinion to let the rest of the flavors play a role. Mouthfeel is fair, and appearance is quite nice actually, but again, I leave disappointed.
