I think everyone is being too generous here. A 74? Not even close. This tastes like a macro-lager, not an IPA. Where are the hops?! I taste none... If it is 90 degrees out, this beer would work. Any other time though, not at all. Quite possible the worst IPA I have ever had. Another doozy from Jacob Leinenkugel.

Hoppin' Helles is probably the most disappointing Leinenkugel effort I've experienced thus far. It bears that same sort of grassiness that I didn't like about Guinness's Harp Lager and that same kind of bitterness I find prevalent in many domestic beers. Not to mention, I always categorized Leinenkugel for its flavors, be them lemon, orange, lemon berry, or simply just refreshing and rather intoxicating hops, but Hoppin' Helles overdoes it to the point where the flavor is more of a nuisance than a presence. Definitely the weakest of Leinenkugel's otherwise surprisingly good line of beers.
