3.59/5 rDev -10.3%
Hop Whore pours a reddish color with a small but lacing head. There is a very harsh earthy aroma; some harsh hop. The taste has a large harsh hop flavor, strong earthy flavors. Strong flavors, good body, a bit harsh, but surprising drinkable. Overall its good but not my favorite.

A - Pours with a nice dark amber color to it. medium/light bubbles forming inside the glass. Very minimal/almost no head formed. What did form was off-white. Has a bit of yeast sediment floating around, nice. Decent lacing.
S - The smell of this beer, to me, is very inviting. Considering this is a 'hop heavy' ale, the smell wouldn't tip you off to this. It has a sweet caramel smell to it.
T - The hops come through more when tasting. For a beverage called Hop Whore, you would expect it to be a bit more overwhelming with the hops. Not saying it's a bad thing, just noting... The sweetness that comes through while smelling is a nice counter part to the hops, which may be why it seems toned down a bit. Does not taste like it is high in alcohol content.
M- Creamy, but not thick. Nice tingle on the sides of the mouth if you let it sit in your mouth. Carbonation is good. Not overwhelming, but not lacking.
O - This is the first beer I have tried from this brewery. A gentleman was nice enough to let me sample all their beers before making a selection, and this one fit my style the most. Sitting down to really pick it apart still leaves me impressed. I will certainly go back to try their other beers.

Dark copper color. One finger, off-white head is gone fairly quickly. Gentle swirl creates a flimsy cap that provides some decent lacing.
Not knowing a bottle date, this comes across really balanced. Actually get more of a sweet caramel malt sense before any hops kick in. Hops that do show up are floral, with a slight citrus leaning.
Taste matches the nose almost note for note. Great balance. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
Decent enough. Won't be obsessed with seeking out again, but would drink again if aware of bottling date.
