look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Hazy copper. Almost no head, but the glass was wet. Minimal lacing.

Smell - Nondescript hop aroma. Slight citrus. Equally strong malt backing. Hint of sweetness.

Taste - Hops up front, again a blend of flavors. Citrus most prominent, but otherwise indiscernable. Malty. Not too strong, but some sweetness. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Easiest to drink of the hoppy varieties I had today. Medium body. Smooth.

Overall - I can see why this is year round. Everyman IPA. Not specific in any category, but good all around.

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass. Bottled March 28 2013.

A gorgeous crystal clear dark copper amber body, with a little bit of dark color character. A big middle column of tiny carbonation, capped with a nice tan evenly pinhead bubbled three finger head that settles to a thick crown and cap. Aggressive and impressive.

Nose is a bit muted. Pine and spruce airy, but not large, hints of earth also but with not much dank quality. Not much sweet malt or caramel, or backbone to this either, but pleasant.

A real juicy palate on first sip. Palate has a hidden thickness and big resiny coating in the mouth. Hop angle comes mostly in aftertaste of pine and spruce, with hints of lots of oily grapefruit. Citrus and juice tropics on first seem to fill the palate but dissolve and disappear very quickly. Some faint biscuit aroma really wants to come out in the swallow but is quite burried also.

Overall though it has such easy drinking ability, and maybe not the most memorable IPA but quite tasty and one I would easily drink again.

A great IPA!

A: It is a cloudy beer with orange tint. The off white head lingers.

S: Citrus fruits, piney and floral. (typical IPA smells)

T: The taste is very balanced between the bitterness and sweetness of the malts. It is a perfect combination and is very refreshing.

M: Carbonated, but not too much. It seems to be just right.

O: This was my first time trying Hopart and will be buying it again. It is a great IPA and it is brew locally for me which is always a plus. Anyhow if you see it give it a try. I doubt there will be any regrets.

Poured from a bomber into a Sam Adams pint glass.
Bottled 1-22-13

Appearance- Poured a hazy gold. Started with a big head that diminished and left a nice lace.
Aroma- At first the piny smell of the hops hits. The biscuity malt character is apparent.
Taste- The hops are not as overpowering as the smell had me thinking. Balanced pretty well by the malts and spicy yeast.
Feel- Pretty average. The carbonation is nice and prickly.
Overall- Pretty good brew. More balanced than the smell made me think. The bitterness is absolutely perfect, leaving the best aftertaste.
