"By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing… kill yourself.

No, no, no it’s just a little thought. I’m just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day, they’ll take root – I don’t know. You try, you do what you can. Kill yourself.

Seriously though, if you are, do." - Bill Hicks

Hopsickle pours with a furious carbonation into two-fingers of quilted tan head. Color is a dirty brown with ruddy hues.

An aggressive hop aroma is checked quickly by strong notes of caramel, peach, and vanilla.

Long hoppy notes to the tongue, with the sweetness taking a timorous role compared to the aroma. Light fruits are noticed in the middle. An annoying chalky character lingers.

Medium to heavy in body and drier than expected. Alcohol is only noticeable as an afterthought.

Damn good example of a DIPA, but still don't know what the hell "triple" has to do with anything. I guess that's something I'll just have to live with.

Bomber. Poured into pint glass. SRM ~14, Generous, fluffy, cream-coloured head. On the nose, it definitely smells what I would expect a hopsickle to smell like! Aroma is pretty much all hop, and very complex. Fruity, spicy, and earthy notes combined. Robust mouthfeel. As for the taste, it is what is expected from the nose. Very complex, very bitter, all hop. This an outstanding example of an Imperial IPA!
