Commonhouse Hoptopus

One of the other things that I didn’t expect to see in Ohio was free parking. Basically everywhere except for the city proper had free parking. In the city itself, I only paid $3 for about 6 hours of parking in a garage. Out here, free parking in a city or even a municipal area is almost completely unheard of. This was a beer that I tried while my car was parked in a free lot.


ABV: 5.8%

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Upon this expert diver’s casual stroll through deep space, she finally discovered where all the missing socks have gone. Into Hoptopus’ hideout. Available May through July.”

Random: I can see why they chose this beer as a seasonal.

The beer poured with a half a finger of wheat head. It dissipated quickly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was incredibly hazy and bright orange in color. I couldn’t see much carbonation in the body. The nose was filled with citrus with some tropical hops, along with wheat. The taste was all citrus up from with tangerines and oranges. It quickly went into mango and pineapple and wheat. There was a small amount of pine resin at the end of the sip. It had a light body with generous carbonation. The finish was quick with wheat and tangerine juice. I was surprised at how light the beer was and the depth of flavor that was imparted. It needed a touch more sweetness, but this was a decent beer that I enjoyed.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
