Maybe I am missing something here but this beer does not impress me.
The color looks nice and average, a pale reddish color.
The smell, well it doesn't smell bad. But it doesn't have a strong smell either. I get a faint floral hop smell but not what I expected from a beer with "hop" in the name.
It tastes... what does it taste like? I get a little hops up front, a little malt going down but that's about it. Nothing really stands out.
As for mouthfeel, average again. Its light on the palate and the alcohol is hidden. Average amount of carbonation as well.
Drinkability must be the strongest suit, mostly because it is unoffensive. Goes down smooth with no bitter or bite. Unfortunately, that is just not my style at all. I prefer a little bold in my beer.
Overall, I used the word "average" a lot because I can't think of any other word to describe. The born on date is 8/12/08 so I know it is fresh. I guess this just isn't the beer for me.
