Opa Opa A10 Warthog

Opa Opa A10 Warthog

This past weekend I tried the STRANGEST beer. A10 Warthog from Opa Opa brewing wasn’t a bad beer, but it’s flavors were incredibly odd for being considered an Imperial IPA.

I would normally expect this style of beer to be quite hoppy, with a heavy dose of malts to balance things out and obscure any booziness (10% ABV for this particular beer). The Warthog had no significant hop flavors, but instead brought a whollop of spicy, dark fruit flavors. I would have 100% labeled this a barleywine in a blind taste test.

If I look at other reviews on the web, I see other people saying that this beer should bring a giant piney-hop punch…something I absolutely did not taste. I literally think the brewery may have mis-labeled the bottle!!! Is that even possible?

  1. One of these is Saturday. (the whole day) Like the A10,. There is nothing in it not designed to impale you, and it does.

    For the thirsty drinker, try opa opa red rock. Awesome stuff.
