4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle bought from Fred Meyer ,N.Salem store.
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a large thick and frothy white head.
Nice fresh hop floral and citrus aromas..touch of bread from the malts. Good.
Taste is very "juicy" and floral ..quenching indeed..more pine notes right at the end..but this is a really fresh light IPA.( even with the alc %).
Great palate..really well made stuff.
Excellent fresh hop IPA..even in the first week of Nov..a vast improvement from last year.

Clear golden with a good pale head. Aroma is peach, pineapple, apricot, lychee, orange blossom. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet and fruity to start with a nice bitter citrus finish and lingering aftertaste. Taste is citrus pith, lychee, mango, touch of resin.

The nose is floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, followed by floral hops and a light sweetness. The finish is a little bitter, but no clawing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Zios. Pours a fairly clear light golden color with a big foamy head response. Aroma is sharp hops, big and upfront. Grassy hops that are more earthy than citrus. Lemongrass type of smell. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth. Light hops and a gentle bitterness on the finish. Interesting, not as hoppy as I was expecting.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour. Little aroma :( Clear light golden, decent white head with good lacing. Mild delicate taste, light hop flavor balanced nicely by mellow malts. Resembling lager- or pilsener-style (yeast?). Not an overwhelming fresh-hopped selection.

Draft@Monks. I love wet hop beers and this one came shining through. resiny, lemony, the Amarillo hops seem to deliver maybe a more delicate, or softer overall feel than for most other wet hopped beers Iíve had. or maybe it was just the fairly light malt profile, or both. Donít know. Loved it.

Draft at Monks. Slightly hazy straw pour with some soft white foam. Golden Delicious apples steeped in bitter Chardonnay. Green bananas. Pummelos. Thyme. Lemongrass. Fennel. Lots of green resinous flavors. Delicately flavors, but maybe a bit timid.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale Hazy Yellow with low carbonation, semi-foamy head and good lacing. Nose has grapefruit, citrus hop, caramel malts, apricot and some resin notes. Flavor has a sweet mango and apricot taste with some toffee, piney & floral hops with a bitter piney hop finish. Body is moderate in weight but the carbonation is a bit heavy. Pretty good Wet Hop IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from Whole Foods Redwood City drank at Mattís, CA, 27/10/13. Lager yellow with a slim white top. Sniffs of a US wheat; mild citrus, barley squash and herb. Flavour mellow parsley-like citrus; watery black pepper hints, dried flowers. Thin condition. Ultimately a bit underwhelming and wheat beer-like.

Shared a bomber. Upon pour a slightly opaque yellow golden ale with a nice white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet and fresh hop flower. The palate is clean and fresh with plenty of hop bite, but never intrusive. My wife and I really enjoyed this fresh hopped offering from the brewery I consistently can not spell or say correctly
