The Brewer’s Reserve Hop-A-Lot-Amus is River Horse’s stab at an Imperial IPA. It is unfiltered so it is a nice cloudy pour, dark amber in color, with a magnificent foamy head. The hops are up front in the nose and the taste, balanced by some caramel notes from the malts. It clocks in at 8.5% ABV, but the alcohol was hardly noticeable. This is a nice beer, not the best example of an Imperial IPA, but very drinkable. I am giving my Jersey Homies a 7/10 on this one.
