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

Bomber from Healthy Spirits SF. Hazy bright gold pour. Grass and sticky resin on the nose, some really out-there zesty citrus and dank mango too. Taste gives great resiny pine, herbal notes, some woodiness, juicy mango, tangerine. Biscuity malt gives a good clean, crisp bite to it. Lingering pine and grassy notes, with some lasting juicy tropical fruit. Great stuff.

Grassy, earthy, grapefuit. Pour is a clear golden color with a white head. Flavors mesh with the aroma with a touch of oats and lemon body and mouthfeel let the hops dominate pretty tasty

Bomber to tulip. Pours surprisingly light yellow for an IPA; small white head. Nose is funky and somewhat foul at first, with citrus. Flavor is citrusy and not much malt. Light-bodied. Overall decent but certainly not great.

draft at a sampling event. From notes. Grapefruit and floral notes. I could drink this everyday.

kaser (5681) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Poured from 22oz bottle. Bright yellow orange pour. White head. A unique and amazing IPA. Zesty tropical and floral aroma. Mild hops. Slight bitterness. Just as easy to drink and good as any IPA I could imagine

brinehart (213) - Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pours a hazy straw color with white head. Wonderful beer. Big time hop flavors - fresh cut grass backed up by grapefruit and just a hint of resin. Perfect balance with bitterness checked by caramel and doughy malts.

Pours a light golden color, floral aroma, hop explosion on the palate, very tasty

Everything about this beer Is great. Love the Amarillo hopps. This one is perfectly balanced and tastes hoppy and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Transparent straw pour with very active carbonation. Aroma is somewhat light but piney with hints of apricot and citrus. Flavor is resinous pine, grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Off-dry finish.

This is a pretty solid fresh hop ale, but its potency and freshness can’t compare to Stone’s or even Sierra Nevada’s offerings. Still, well-balanced, bright and clean taste.
