Notes / Commercial Description:
Hopulent IPA is a big beer with lots of complex malt flavor and excessive hops. This beer will have changes to the grain bill and seasonal hop changes. The character of Hopulent IPA is over the top, too much of everything—a real HOP HEADS DELIGHT!

A: Looks don't get much better than this for a DIPA. Multiple fingers of fluffy white head with lots of sticky lacing. Orange/copper in color. A good amount of sediment settles to the bottom as well.

S: Very hoppy, of course. Lots of grapefruit and pine aroma. Floral.

T: Very sweet, almost to the point of being cloying. Tropical fruit and piney resin. A nice punch of bitterness provides some balance to the sweetness in the finish.

M: Full bodied and thick with very mild carbonation.

O: Not bad, but nothing special. As with a lot of DIPAs, the flavor boarders on cloying and could do with some more balance.

Having this for the 1st time...love the color and smell, love the upfront taste but not the finish as much as some other other DIPA's.

22oz. Bomber. Did a beer trade with Rick at Brewforia in Meridian, ID. Series #3 ABV 8.3%
A) Poured with a finger thick head. White, creamy, thin and sticky. Hazy body with sediment - guessing unfiltered. Copper in color.
S) Grassy. Hints of cannabis. Mellow hints of pine.
T) A decent blend of hops and malts. The flavor seems a bit weak. A robust hop bite in the finish. A pleasant malt sweetness and hops in the after taste.
M) Creamy. Smooth. Medium body.
D) A decent brew but just not what I was expecting for an IPA.
