Wet hop ales are some of the freshest beers of the year. Most hops are generally dried, shredded and pelletized before they are used in beer. Once a year, during harvest, fresh hops are harvested, over-nighted to breweries all over the US, and thrown fresh (and wet) into the brew kettle or brite tank. A couple of weeks back we received 10lbs of fresh Amarillo and 10lbs of fresh Centennial hops. They were brewed into a gentle, slightly sweet pale ale designed to act as a bright canvass to highlight the hops’ character. The wet hops lend the beer a special resiny taste with a refreshing bitterness, floral notes, and plenty of spice with just a hint of bubblegum, and a long hoppy finish. Malts Used: 2-Row, Aromatic, Crystal, CaraVienne, Unmalted Wheat Hops Used: Warrior, Fresh Whole Cone Amarillo, Fresh Whole Cone Centennial Yeast: House Strain

Pour on tap at the brewpub, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, pine, slight wet hop notes going into a slight soapy note, hints of grain, biscuit, bread, slight earth, spice notes come through as well, pretty nondescript. Taste is a mix of soap, grass, grain, hints of pine and earth, some wet hop notes go into biscuit, bread, slight caramel, touch of spice, finishing bitter, slightly dry.

Tap. Pours Clear amber, medium off white head, creamy, great lacing. Aroma its quite weak with floral and pine notes. Flavor is a bit stronger with herb and pine, along with some bready malt notes. Lightly sweet and a light bitter finish. Medium body, bit watery. I suspect that this has been around too long and has oxidized.

Had while camping out for Surly Darkness Day. Might have been a bit too cold, but I was not getting a very big aroma or taste. It was very light on the pine aroma/flavor.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at the source... Pours a mostly transparent semi-bright coppery hue and topped with a solid frothy white head... Soft citrus hop profile in the, a bit of pale grains and a touch of pear. Not too bright... Flavors are more of the same without any true clean or bright hop profile. Pale grains with a mild sweetness. Touch of grass in the backend. Just shy of medium bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. Somewhat fluffy mouthfeel.

Tap at the brewpub. Rich orange pour with a coating white head. Mild pine resin and floral hop aroma and taste. Smooth palate with light carbonation. Very nice.
