Notes/Commercial Description:
This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

3.8/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured a dark copper with amber notes. Nice thick head that stays around. Not much lacing.

Somewhat citrus in the nose, with some dried fruit - perhaps apricot? Nothing major or overpowering in the smell.

First sip of Hophog reveals a combination of malts upfront with fruity hops, gives way to spicier hops and then goes back to a middle ground of citrus and malt. Each sip seemed a little different with new aspects to the beer as it warmed.

Mouthfeel was a bit overcarbonated, for me. Lighter body than it would seem, but still in the medium range.

This is a multi-layered beer, that I'd recommend sipping and enjoying as it warms. At almost 8%, it is high for an single IPA, and may cause some drinkability issues. Still, happy to have a case of these on hand, and will drink more of them on down the line.

One other note - coming in at less than $30 a case, this is one of the best "bangs for the buck" in the land of single IPA's, imho.
