Hops Infusion is loaded with piney, citrusy notes, much hops complexity, and a strong foundation of malt underneath it all.. Glowing a deep amber color, Hops Infusion is brewed with seven types of hops. Simcoe, Magnum, Cascade, Liberty, Saaz, Fuggles and E. Kent Goldings give this beer the complexity that's so interesting. Our brewers intention on Hops Infusion was to create a complexity of hops flavor and aromas, not found in any other beer. Originally developed for our BrewPub (no longer open), Hops Infusion was ahead of its time in 1998, but eventually became over shadowed by plethora of entries from other brewers in the India Pale Ale category, with everyone pushing the envelope on hops content more and more. So, in late 2005 we redesigned this beer with an entirely new recipe and new packaging as well. The results are unmistakable, Hops Infusion is clearly a leading IPA once again. We brew Hops Infusion (6.2% ABV, 1.068 OG) all year 'round. So if your local beer store doesn't have it, tell 'em to get moving!

This is OK for an IPA. Just like most of the Weyerbacher beers this one has that distinctive Weyerbacher off taste. It has plenty of hops but does not hit the spot for an IPA.

    Seven types of hops were used in the creation of this beer, sadly though, the taste gives the impression that no malt was harmed. This beer is hoppy, and poorly balanced. I've not had a lot of love for Weyerbacher beers and this doesn't help their cause.

    An amber colored beer with a small frothy textured, white head. Settles into a small ringlet, fairly quickly. The profile is hops, citric, pine and florial. Not as bold as one might exopect but in a medium bodied beer a real thirst quencher

    Pours a clear, truly beautiful dark golden amber with a decent pale tan head - quite appetizing. Aroma is strong and hoppy with fruity and floral hints and just a whisper of sweetness. Hops dominates the flavor, which is mildly bitter and has hints of pear, wood and honey. Lively, fizzy texture leaves a fairly persistent and hoppy tingle.

    Got this one time at a retailer (Bodega Blue in Vero Beach, FL) that served lunch and had daily specials. Not sure if this was on tap or poured from the bottle...thinkin tap though for the price. Wasn't all that I expected, but a good beer nonetheless. Think this was the first time that I tried Weyerbacher. Just recently tried their Imperial Stout which was just average for it's style. Basically, I haven't hopped on the Weyerbacher bandwagon yet, but curious to try some of their others.

    Very hoppy and very delicious. I good drink all of the time and never get tired of it. Love the strong floral hoppy scent of pine needles and citrus. I also love the new bottle label...a fat sticky bud of hops.

    Hm.. I will admit, after drinking some heavy brews all night, i expected quite a bit more from this beer then was recieved by my palate. A little weak i think. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a small off white head. Aroam is semi-dank, earthy with hops, grapefruit and pine notes. Taste is refreshing, citrusy and astringent yet not as firm as i was looking for. Im happy to have these guys in my state though, and i can't wait to see more from them.

    Pours a red/orange with thick whitish head. Aroma is of pine, some citrus, and spice. While I expected more of a hop kick in the flavor, I was disappointed in the sweetness and alcohol taste showing through. There are definitely better IPAs out there.

    Review from a bottle with no freshness date. The pour is orange/red with a sharp burst of carbonation. A one finger foamy white head makes an appearance and disappears quickly. The smell is of pine and citrus, pretty standard for an American IPA. The taste is decent, with oily and grapefruit notes and nice balance of caramel malts. It is slightly acidic and heavily carbonated, which brings it down a notch. Hops Infusion is nice, a good session beer, but it is missing something. Weyerbacher's IIPA blows this out of the water.

    Pours a copper/reddish color with a thin head. Just some spotty lacing. Aroma is malt with some floral hopping. Sweet caramel malt flavor, crisp bitter hops, a touch of tropical fruit and a little dry. Stronger flavor than the aroma would indicate. Good but not great.

    Sampled a couple at home while making some hard cider, I had a craving for hops and this fit the bill. Aroma is concentrated pink grapefruit and sweet mealy malt. Rich copper color with a lasting 1" light tan head and thick lacing. Strong bitterness on the palate that lingers for quite a while. Medium body, and did I mention really bitter. Flavor is heavy on the hops, flavors of citrus and grapefruit which quickly turns to an overly amped bitterness. Basic malt content, would like to see a thicker presence to balance the hops. Hard to discern any other flavors through the thick bittering hops. Definitely an eye opener, I prefer more hop and malt flavors in lieu of a powerful bitterness.
