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.

I just bought this bottle so I hope it’s 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. It’s nice all the same. Crisp texture. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied. A straight up IPA. The smell was off, hopefully it’s not widespread.

Keg at the brewpub, PDX, 09/11/14. Very lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is earthy hops, mineral rinse, bitter citric peel, grapefruit. Taste comprises citric pith, grapefruit, bitter orange, light spice, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light hop spattering. Ok IPA.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is oxidized raisin caramel with notes of hops and malt. No too fresh anymore I guess. Flavour is better but still old.

Unlike more herbal fresh hop beers this one on draft tastes like orange juice. One dimensional and sweet but not terrible.

On tap @ all stars. Overall good IPA, easy to drink. Light transparent brown. Good white creamy head that reduces but is more than just a ring. Moderate bitterness, decent citrus hops. 8.6 bd

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a large white head. Aroma is full of flowers and pineapple. Flavor is very floral with some pineapple, biscuit and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Tap at Haymarket. Very non-aggressive IPA - some floral hop but it’s far from bold. Decent enough but far from awesome.

undated 22oz bottle served in a New Glarus pint glass in April 2012. Pours with a medium, rather creamy looking bone-colored head. The beer itself is slightly hazy golden amber. Notable and rather chunky sediment remained in the bottle after the initial pour. Lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smells hoppy with a lot of citrus and some floral, herbal and earthy elements. Presages a taste that will be both sweet and tart. Marred by a bit of dankness. Taste: more malt than is common for style, making for a more balanced mix of sweet malts and bitter hops. A hit of tangy hops and/or yeast towards finish, followed by an earthy and bitter (grapefruit) aftertaste from the hops. M: nicely carbonated; medium body; rather dry finish. O: this unfiltered Imp. IPA has a homebrew (not that that is a bad thing) look and taste, and a very fine mouthfeel.

Draught @ BeerTemple. Pours very pale yellow and looks almost like a witbier. Quickly fading white head. Lightly sour, soapy nose. Taste is not what I expected: again hard candy sweet and sour. Can’t taste the hop. Reminds me of Hoegaarden, which is not good...
