Hopportunity Knocks poured a slightly cloudy orange into the glass, with copious small carbonation streams and a medium-sized, white head. The ale was mostly sweet lime with light pine in the nose, and fairly subdued.
Hopportunity Knocks had a bright and crisp start, successfully bringing plenty of hop flavor without the aggressive bitterness. There were hints of lime and tropical fruit that came through, and it ended on an earthy note of dried nectarines, plum, and tobacco.
Hopportunity Knocks is probably one of the most delicate big-flavor beers I've tried this year. As such, it's a pleasure getting through the first bottle, but a night full of Hopportunity would be fatiguing. It's occasionally nice to have a big-flavored beer without a double-digit ABV.
