BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Joseph James Brewing Inc.
Nevada, United States
jjbrewco.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Hop Box is our tribute to hops! Bury your nose in a glass and inhale. Pungent aromas immediately enrich your senses. Hop Box has both pine and citrus notes that arise from the bucketfuls of hops we add to the kettle and again into the fermentation tanks. We attempt to pack as much hop flavor and aroma into your glass as possible. Drink in the rich resinous flavors that elevate the heady aromatics. The hop box sips crisp and finishes dry with a lingering bitterness that begs you to take another sip.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on May 24, 2016.

It pours cloudy yellow with a modest white head that leaves lacing.

The aroma has a hint of toasted bread with a ginger, rosemary, and other herbal characteristics along with a floral note.

Medium body.

Vague toast and herbal flavors with a bitter finish.

A very pale yellow color, similar to a budlight. Extensitve carbonation and slightly cloudy beer. The head is egg color frothy and billow with good retetion.

A moderate hop aroma, citrus, floral, pine, oranges, perfume, and grassy. A sublte malty sweetness come in from the back ground.

A mild hop flavor with citrus, floral, pine, oranges and grass. The malt is lightly toasted and sweet.

The mouth feel is smooth with a general finish that does not last.

If this is a DIPA, it is a joke. this beer can barely be classified as APA. The hops flavor ( the lack thereof)is mild at best. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale has more hops than this. Seriously you need go back to the drawing board on this one. The color of the beer should be a few tints darker. This is Not a DIPA, no freaking way you had one Job Put hops in the beer, one major job.

Had on-tap at the Yard House, Las Vegas - poured into a pint glass.

L: Pours a medium golden color, clear, and with 2 fingers of sticky white head.

S: Citrus and pine... faintly herbal and earthy.

T/F: Thinner body than I was hoping for in a beer this big. Semi-sweet malts open up and the hop profile is solid. Citrus and tropical fruits as well as evergreen. Zesty carbonation and finishes clean.

O: A fairly average DIPA. Thinner than expected but still reasonably tasty. Not one I'd seek out again. Not one I'd turn down.
