3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Some pine like, spruce notes on opening, the beer itself was slightly sweeter than the aroma suggested. Grassy hops push through the lighter, fruity body, fresh, some hay, some herbs. Reasonable.

Tastes bitter, grassy and earthy. It was just average though. Nothing made it stand out from the others.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is yeast, pine, tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of biscuit malts. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, mild to medium hop resin, malts and a long and heavy bitterness in the finish. Can’t remember if I’ve had a wet hop APA as opposed to an IPA; either way this was great.

Bottle. Aroma of light hops and cardboard, taste is bread like and mildly bitter. There is a sour rough feeling across the palate. The appearance was an amber color that left oil on the glass. I’m guessing this one was oxidized a little or something. An overall muted and off putting experience. Unfortunately it’s the only one I have.

Bottle bought at Dade City Brass Tap, pours a golden color with aromas of tropical fruit, pine, hops, and some citrus. Flavors follow the aroma with some light caramel backbone.

Very good hop aroma and taste apparently because they use wet hops. Great pale ale. Had a bomber with Vince while at Cloudland Canyon Grill.

Very good fresh hop taste. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Better than most apa offerings.

Grassy flavor. I got this is in February so it was probably a little past peak consumption time. A little flat on flavor, not as hoppy as I would expect

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Unfortunately I have to drink this from a solo cup so my appearance rating may be off. Bottle, heavy head pour. Drinking on feb 17 2013 (bottled on oct 4 2012) so I hope its still "fresh". Grassy and flat :(. Tastes like it would have been excellent if I got to it earlier. Citrus aroma. Medium body/medium bitter. Refreshing. Will try and rate again with a fresher bottle.
Trying colorado fresh hop on site, ppir was orange pour lost its head quickly. Light hops, not as citrusy as expected. Brewed with colorado hops. 3.5
