This yearís Hop Harvest features fresh Centennial hops from third-generation, family-owned Goschie Farms in Silverton, Ore. Newly named brewmaster Jeff Edgerton and family recently drove to the farm with a utility trailer and burlap bags, and brought back 400 pounds of fresh Centennial hops. Within an hour, crews cut open the sacks and hops were blended with the base beer that had been prepared in advance and cooled to prevent cooking off the natural citrus and floral notes of the hops. Almost two weeks later, brewers lightly filtered the beer and filled kegs and 22-oz bottles with this farm-fresh brew.

I just bought this bottle so I hope itís a 2011 because there is not a date on the label. Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy orange color with a half-finger of head, short retention but good lacing. It has a musty smell, not very appealing. It has the faintest lemon smell. The taste is nice and clean. Moderately bitter and hoppy throughout. No other real flavors coming through. Itís nice all the same. Crisp texture. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied. A straight up IPA. The smell was off, hopefully itís not widespread.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. +++Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky yellow-apricot color with a small white head that left no lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, sweettart candies, light fruity hops and chalk. The flavor was tart, dryish and chalky with notes of Sweettart candies and faint fruity hops. The finish was medium length dry chalk and Sweettart candies. Disappointing.

rougeau13 (2301) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Unfiltered, hazy orange with a small off-white, grayish head. Though mild, itís a mostly citrus aroma: lemon and orange, with caramel, grass and melon notes. The taste is a little sweet and very citrusy and floral with a solid bitterness. Refreshing, but a little thin, with a substantial tart/bitter finish. In sum, thereís very little malt presence in this; itís pretty much a hop bomb on the back of the palate. That doesnít make it bad, just unfinished seeming and way off balance.

Nice light hoppy aroma but the citrus taste is a bit over powering and think that it could have been a bit more balanced. Love the story that goes along with this brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At first I was unimpressed with this IPA. Nose and taste were muddy. I set the glass down and did some chores on my computer. A second sampling a few minutes later revealed a complexity in both the nose and the taste. Floral, citrus and grass combine nicely. Finish starts out earthy but brightens and sharpens after a few moments.

Strykzone (6024) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. A hazy golden pour that has plenty of suspended yeast, including some chunks. An almost white head lasts a couple of minutes. An aroma of fresh, even sticky, hops that are floral and citrus. The taste is of fresh hops, too. I taste caramel, but it is different and has a honey something going on. There are herbal and yeast notes with pineapple and grapefruit. The citrus has grapefruit fading in and out. The fruit grows as the glass empties and it is tasty. Caramel becomes more standard. The center of my tongue really gets a workout with this one. Unusual. A nice beginning and nicer finish makes for an enjoyable glass.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bomber pours slightly hazy copper with gold hues and weak white head. The modest aroma offers up largely floral hops mixing with lesser amounts of spicy hops and earthy herbal shrubbery like hops. The carbonation enhanced taste is similar with bold floral hops creating both a flavor and increasing floral hop bitterness followed by a mild level of spicy hops. In the background are light notes of sugary malt sweetness. This is far too floral and sweet for my taste. Bigger floral or spicy bitterness would help the balance and improve the experience for me.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Pours golden with an off white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit and malt. Taste is of bitter hops with sweet malts and citrus flavors.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pours a fading beige head with some lacing, deep golden body. Aromas are grassy and floral. Flavor is floral with a grassy note, some honeyed sweetness. Finish is more dry than bitter, but they are both there.

Bomber. Pours cloudy yellow orange with a small white head. Nose is moderate hops. Taste is mild fresh hops with a bitterness on the end. Average body. Decent.
