This year’s 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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Shared bomber at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a hazed orange/gold color, off white cream & bubbles head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was pungent cattiness, grapefruit rind, dry, resiny, and earthy. The flavor was quite bitter and dry with both lasting past the finish, and somewhat halted by a follow up glass of ice water. Somewhere in the middle was just a hint of caramel & malt sweetness. Although I’m very pro-hop, a little more malt presence would have been welcome to get closer to balance and take the edge off. Another chance, on tap at the same location. Although the appearance improved with some thick, sheet-like lacing, and the hop attack was slightly mellower to the senses, I still came to the same conclusion. +.1

Bottle with Carla. Pours a hazy gold/orange with white foam. Smells very citrusy of oranges. Tastes initially peppery, citrusy and resiny of fresh hops, but fades into cheap 2-row at the end.

Alphadelic (1967) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2011
A lightly hazy, deep amber ale. Some head retention. The nose is a surprisingly dull and oily hop aroma. It is full of damp green foliage and plenty of caramel malty sweetness and a hint of banana and soap. It has a pretty amazing toasty flavour that really packs a punch, very savoury. There is definitely some real bitterness here though it gives way to that toast in the finish with some light nuttiness too. The hop flavour is very mild and grassy. All in all its quite well balanced but I would have expected more of a ’Wow’ factor, especially when it comes to showcasing the hops.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. color with a ring of white head. Sweet hops, but remains fairly faint considering the style. Sweet notes with floral as well. Flavor is dry hops with a powdery sweetness. The hops have an interesting sweetness but the taste is also fairly subdued. Interesting.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle: Pours a hazy mahogany color with a thick off-white head and a thick sheet of lacing. The nose is fresh with lots of orange, spice and citrus along with a toasty malt background. The flavor is light and balanced; very little hop bitterness, a toasty pale malt note and a nice crispy hop flavor. Most of the hops are dry hops and it makes a west coast ipa.

22oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Orangish amber in color. Big hops aroma and flavor. Floral and just the right amount of fruit hops flavor coming off. Malt sweet and bittered just right this was a tasty treat.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish in color, slight haze, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Barnish & musty hoppy nose, bright, some citrus and floral notes.   Has a fresh hop flavor, hoppy yet not overly bitter, light sweetness.   Has a musty/wet like flavor, a little hard to describe other than to say it seems fresh.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Not heavy, but smooth with a decent malt base.   Has a slight earthen/soily aspect towards the back, with some smooth hop flavors.   Good, but I don’t know if its as good as the first version I had from Bridgeport.

I now wish that I had bought more of this but I am glad to have tasted this. Pours an orange shade and the bouquet is very woodsy. The taste is very light and buoyant. Citrus notes and chamomile. Just a terrific IPA with a touch of bitterness.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Hazy, orange-gold pour with minimal head and no lace. Mild fresh hop nose, medium body with toast, citrus hops and some resinous bitter flavors. Tart finish which is short, lightweight and a bit peppery. Decent, but the bottled-conditioned IPA from BridgePort is superior.
