Harvested hop “cones” fresh out of the field are often referred to as “wet hops”. Not matter what the final form the hops will take, there are several, the hop cones are dried, or cured, so they will not mildew. In our Hop Harvest Ale, we were shipped wet hop cones direct from the fields. These fresh hop flowers were added directly to our brew kettle. For those of you who know your hop varieties, we used “Citra” hops.

Tap at Nashville location. Nice floral/citrus aroma. Great blend of hops resulting in great taste. Nice lacing. I like it better than their ice age or hop goddess brews which are also seasonals.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Little Rock Brewpub, 12/14/11
Aroma: This one has a nice hop nose to it, with some caramel malts too
Appearance: It pours a clear copper-orange color with small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is balanced between light-medium sweetness and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a rather high drinkability
Just added this one, so I guess I’ll be the first rater too. Anyway, this was a rather solid Pale Ale. It wasn’t the most hoppy example of the style, but I thought it worked pretty well.
