Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment kind of thing. This year we’ve chased down Virgil Gamache farms, famed amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year

Going off memory - had it almost a year ago but thought it was a very good beer. Anything with amarillo hops is usually a good beer.

Pours a clear amber Brown color with creamy soapy head. Aroma is citrus light caramel malt and some barnyard hop funk. Taste follows the aroma well with a nice barnyard hop funk bill. Wet medium mouth feel that makes you want to slam it.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours. Dark golden with a thick beige head snd a floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. Refreshing.

had fresher than last years. a ton of floral and citric hops both in the nose and flavor without all the bitterness. Very easy going, yet delicious.

From bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus. Lots of hops in the flavor, a good maltiness, but not overpowering. Very nice brew.

Reviewed from notes: On tap at 3rd Floor Houston. Pour is somewhat cloudy golden amber, nice one finger head, nice lacing. Aroma is slight bready malts, floral and citrus hops. Great overall IPA, I’m looking forward to this year’s version.

fiulijn (15780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy blond color with creamy head. Delicate aroma of cereals, chamomile, grass, yellow polenta. Lean and dry mouthfeel; the flavor has some hay and cereals accent; strong bitterness; soft hop resins, but lacking a bit in the fruity side; balanced and long final.
Good beer, but a bit disappointing compared to expectations.

Great fresh hop brew. Not over the top but good example of the style with the fresh aromatic quality you would expect

Solid fresh hop brew! I like the showcasing of the hops with out it being over the top.
