Hop SuplexHop Suplex
Notes: Hop Suplex is juiced with six different hop varieties in the brew kettle and our slow, heavy weight dry-hop additions added by HopfenKubel. Hop Suplex Ale features Saucony's widest range of hop varieties and our most complex hopping schedule. Hop Suplex weighs in at 10% ABV compliments of a hefty grain bill, but a dose of honey balances the flavor and compliments the floral and strong citrus tones of grapefruit, melon, and gooseberry provided from our favorite selection of hops.

12oz bottle in a standard pint glass.

A- Cloudy copper-brown color, off white head, 1f, leaves some lacing.

S- Lots of tropical fruit and sugary tropical candy dominate. Some citrus, lemon and orange.
Just a touch of malt caramel sweets, too.

T- Cooked malt flavors prop those fruity hops. Boozy, but the tropical fruits hang in there.

M- Sweet first, then a long dry finish. Enough carbonation. Hoppy tingle, not bitter.

O- The fruit hops, big malts and dry finish make this sweet beer rise above the high abv. Not bad.

Opaque amber pour with 2 fingers of head, leaving behind lots of sticky lacing. Smells citrusy, sweet caramel, a bit of mint, bready cereal.
Bitter up front, immediately giving way to the sweet bready malt backbone. Hops are pungent, dank, bitter.. Minty.. Fruity.
Medium to full body, medium carbonation.
This beer started out average... As it warmed up, it got very awesome. Complexity lies within the malts but the hops are just as intriguing. Boozy, but very tasty.
