Grass, pine, lots of bitterness, grapefruit peel and pith. Mediumlight body, little touch of biscuity malt, nice lacing. Old school in style and a pleasant representation of the IPA from days gone by.

Grumpy Troll Hoppa Loppa IPA

From 7/8/13 tasting notes...

Enjoyed on tap. Served chilled in a shaker pint glass.

A) Golden Amber with a nice frothy white head, which settled to a thin dusting. Ample lacing...

S) A good amount of citrus with a hint of peach and mango. A bit of grass and pine too...

T) Nice balance... Follows the nose. Finished with some grapefruit peel zest.

M) A lighter medium body with moderate carbonation. Pleasing aftertaste and finish.

O) I found this to be an above average IPA, and would be happy to recommend it's consumption. If you find yourself in Mount Horeb, WI, stop by the Grumpy Troll and give it a shot.

Paired with the rueben sandwich, and sweet potato tots. This was also quite tasty...

A- Not much of a head. What is there is white. Body is a clear dark golden color. Leaves some good spiderweb lacing.

S- Faint PNW hop smell.

T- Good malt backbone. Nice bitter hop IPA finish...probably the best part of Hoppa Loppa.

M- Mouthfeel is on the thin side, medium carbonation.

D/O- An average IPA from Grumpy Troll. I feel a few tweaks (better head retention, aroma) and it could be very solid.
