Weyerbacher

Hops Infusion

Our brewers’ intention for Hops Infusion was to create an IPA with complex hops flavors and aromas not found in any other beer.    Made with seven hop varieties, this deep copper-orange IPA is loaded with juicy hop notes of pine, lemon zest, and a layer of pink grapefruit and a strong foundation of toasted caramel malts underneath it all.  Hops Infusion weighs in at 6.2% and is available year-round.

In case you are wondering, the seven varieties are Cascade, Pilgrim, Centennial, Liberty, Saaz, Fuggle and E. Kent Golding.

UPDATE!   When it was debuted in 1998 at our old Brew Pub on South 6th Street in Easton, Hops Infusion wore the yellow ‘particle’ label (see below).  In 2006 or so, Weyerbacher updated the label to the blue one.  Hops Infusion production has now ceased. Hops Infusion was officially retired on Friday 5/25/2012 at a special event at the Weyerbacher Brewing Company, Inc.  Click here to read about the event!

    Hops Infusion is a well-crafted IPA that ranks up there with some of the best I have tasted. It is smooth and leaves a hoppy taste in your mouth that neither feels overdone or overly filling. I bought a 6 pack to sample it and would buy a case of it in PA. If you like your IPA on the smooth and not overly bitter side, this is a brew for you.

    Hops Infusion – I always have a case or sixtel in the fridge. Love the citrus flavor in this brew.

    I actually think that hops infusion could use some tweaking. The 7 different varieties of hops make for a somewhat soapy bitter and mildly metallic taste in my opinion. I love Double Simcoe, but I personally feel that Weyerbacher could and should make a better Ipa.

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I did not find this brew to be bitter, soapy, or metallic. Maybe the poster got an overly old bottle at the liquor store? I think this a very delicious, not bitter, floral IPA

  4. […] Weyerbacher Hops Infusion (A-) Cellared, this beer is now retired? I was glad to try it. Bitter & malty, softened hop flavor is still solid […]
