Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. At harvest, we rush Goschie Farms’ Cascade hops fresh from vine to kettle. Not any Cascades, mind you, but an heirloom strain, from a single field, restored from the original rhizome. Hope you’re as hopped up as we are.

joeneugs (5630) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
22 oz. bottle. It pours a very light golden yellow color with a frothy white head. Surprising how light this is. The aroma has lots of floral hops, honey and grapefruit with distinct pilsner maltiness. The flavor is a bit sweeter with honey, pilsner malt and intense floral hops and a bit of grass. The body is light but a bit sticky. Unusual but fun beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 22, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, cereal grain and herbal tea. Flavor is medium bitter with a mild, light malt presence, alcohol fairly well hidden. Light body with soft carbonation. Kind of a Pilsner/IPA hybrid, very light malt character.

Bombe poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, lemon zest, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness, grapefruit and light lemon zest with a smooth dry moderatly bitter lingering eartrhy finish.

IndianaRed (3742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at Brewforia Bdeer Market, Eagle, ID 22oz bottle pours a clear medium golden color with coarse off-white head. Light hoppy aroma, and a bit pilsnerish. Decently bitter but not much fresh hop flavor. Light bodied and quick finish. A little soapy and decidedly lacking in the fresh hop character I was hopping for. A bitter pilsner.

Pour looks like it came from a mega brewery, but with better lacing. Nose was oranges, grass and floral. Taste was subtle - malt and citrus. Nice light fizzy mouthfeel with a balanced finish. I like the way they handle the hops and the alcohol.

nsquishee (637) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Malty, smooth, and sweet. Doesn’t smell or look like anything super special, but it does provide a nice, sweet, malty, and fresh tasting ipa. Deschutes IPA + pale ale+ honey+ fresh hops. Very nice seasonal.

brokensail (15755) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Clear golden straw color with a white head. Nose is nice and floral with a hint of melon. Some sweet bread and biscuit malt, a hint of grass, and lots of perfume. Sweet bread and biscuit malt on the palate. Very light bitterness, a solid floral hop notes, and some hints of grass. A little bit of fruit, mild melon, and a bit of spice.

trevor211 (1599) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Quite light in color, smallish head. Hop-infused vegetal citrus on the nose. Flavor makes me wonder why this is rated so low. Delicate, but with a slightly dusty vegetal note like a saison, and the hops definitely get a chance to shine. Not bad at all.

DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Nothing special, not too hoppy, a little flat, but still an awesome design on the bottle cover

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Light dank, citrus, grain, hay, biscuit malts on the nose. Fairly unimpressive really. Pours golden, nice head and lace. Flavors of biscuit, hay, a little leafy dank, some citrus, a little floral notes linger. Not really standout by any means, but nothing wrong either. Expected more i guess.
