The Hopfish -- a brilliant little thing. Catch one, and reminisce about the classic days of IPAs fortified by multiple additions of hops, and balanced with the residual sweetness of caramel malts. The Hopfish is always ready to take on the harsh conditions of the even changing beer world.

From a BOM can into a pint glass. A crystal clear golden amber with a head of slightly off white foam tops a gorgeous looking pour. Scent is very hop forward with tropical and herbal (+ resinous) notes most evident along with slight toasted malt backbone. Taste has the hops and bitterness taking center stage with a resinous -- almost piney -- quality. Feel is smooth with an expected hoppy aftertaste. Overall a solid IPA.

No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to avoid drinking IPAs...

...Well, at least this one was more than decent. I like the copperish look to this one and the smell was full of hops and very juicy, but the mouthfeel was truly astringent. No matter, though you couldn't really ignore it, this IPA was solid enough. One of the better Flying Fish offerings.

Pours a dark amber without much foam. Smell is tangerine, tropical fruit and some pine. Taste is interesting....follows the smell but not bitter at all, almost lager-y. Easy drinking. Different for a typical IPA.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops, not too strong, but still inviting. Tastes of citrus hops with decent sweet malt, sight caramel note. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking with good carbonation. Overall, a good beer.
