Beer 144/365 – Legacy Hoptimus Prime

Style: Imperial IPA

ABV: 9.0%

Purchased at: Joe Canals – Bellmawr NJ

What makes this beer different: Its the only beer bottle that turns into a robot when its emptied

Will I be drinking this again: It has been retired, and Legacy Brewing has been closed… So unless you are good friends with Doc Brown and have a delorean, we are out of luck on drinking this again.

Grade: B-

4/1/2010: Hoptimus Prime. What an ingenious name for a beer. Of course the name is a play off of my favorite cartoon growing up; Scooby Doo. You know the one with that goofy dog that turns into a flying cyborg robot? Okay obviously this is a play off of Tranformers. That was my attempt at a little bit of April Fools shenanigans for ya.

So I read a bit about this beer beforehand and found out that a good bit of the last batches were infected. Unfortunately I think mine was one of them. You could even smell that pungent sour odor as soon as you open the beer. The taste was very sour to start, but about halfway down it receded. After that it was just a bunch of sweet malt, with a small side of hops. Was really disappointed I got one of the bad ones since I heard a lot of good things about it. The only redeeming quality was that the alcohol was hidden very well.

Picture of the day: Some sound advice on child support.
