**NOTE: BrewErie just hired a new head brewer. They are keeping the names of their old lineup, but he is completely re-working the old recipes (which is good news)! They just tapped his version of Hopness Monster, and this review is of that new recipe.

Slightly cloudy yellow-orange with fluffy white head. Aroma is a nice mix of light citrus and grassy hops. Taste is nice and balanced....super drinkable. Not overly citrusy or bitter, but there's just enough of both. Looking forward to see what the new brewer does with the other beers in their core line up!

The beer pours a dark amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice malty scent that boasts of crystal malts along with a mild hop aroma. It's pretty well balanced out. The taste is average. It has a light crystal malt flavor; almost extract like. It's slightly sweet with a decent hop flavor, nothing too great. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an average IPA. It's clean, but not very complex. The hop character is lacking. It's one and done for me.

A - Poured a light copper color with a thin off white head

S - Is of citrus hops on a decent malt base

T - The hop flavor is weird kinda like if you chew on a hop pellet has a home brew taste

M - This beer has a very thin and watery body with light carbonation to it

D - Decent for a home brew but below average for a beer from a brewpub they need to fix the flavor and thicken up the body some so its not like drinking hop pellet water
