Hopportunity Knocks Ale
H.K. pours a fairly cloudy dark brown that is streaked with gold highlights. It has a foamy off-white head, but not a lot of carbonation. It has a yeasty, hop-heavy aroma with a nice caramel undertone. Tastewise, there is a dose of malt on the front end and a bit of yeastiness, but this beer is first and foremost bitter and hoppy. It also has a very hoppy aftertaste.
This is a pretty solid beer. A hop monster, but one with considerable character and style. A bit more balance would be appreciated, but it's still worth a try. Buy it if you see it.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
