Hoppelhammer 7 years 10 months ago #1

What are the thoughts on this?

Tasting it in bottle for the first time tonight and its not doing much for me.

Bit boozy, very estery, quite bitter but not much hop flavour or aroma.

Is it an American strength ipa using English hops?

Wasn't that impressed. Found it a bit sweet with not enough hops to balance it out . Something called Hoppelhammer I was expecting more. Reckon it would be one to try on cask though.

[i:29bserfj]Was[/i:29bserfj] looking foward to trying this, can't believe it's another bullshit Irish IPA.

The cask version that I had at the Belfast festival last year was excellent- And it won beer of the show. I got a bottle same day from the Vineyard which was also good. However the bottle I had the other night wasn't a patch on those. I'm guessing the originals were heavily dry-hopped.

I had a few keg pints last weekend and a bottle the other day and I really like it. It lacks the toastiness you get in the likes of Bengal Lancer but there's a similar tangy marmalade thing going on that I enjoy.

It's not too bad: a bit sticky and rough, but there's certainly plenty of bitter tang - I got lots of orange and grapefruit. Found it to be pretty unpolished though. Would be very interested to try it on either keg or cask - I hope some of it will make its way down seeing as there have been a few casks of Clotworthy Dobbin in various pubs over recent weeks.
