3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Full Throttle, served in a pint glass. Pours slightly hazy dark golden with thick, almost chewy white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy vegetal hops. Taste is substantial, lightly sweet caramel malt with big grassy woody hops strong on the finish. Not quite as bitter as the regular IPA. Tasty, and clearly fresh, but not as strong on the hop flavor as others.

Bomber; thanks Clint; slightly cloudy orange with thin creamy white head; sticky, pine and buttery hops; slight fruity astringency and sticky dry finish; a yummy and warming IPA; just a tad buttery to me overall

22. Pours a murky burnished dark amber with a big, thick, sudsy platinum blond head. Lots of sheeting, stringy lace. Big piney, grapefruity nose. Creamy medium body. Toast, caramel, nuts, pine, and grapefruit on the mid palate. Long piney finish. Very appealing IPA. Bold hop flavor, though not exceptional for a beer from the Yakima Valley that takes "Fresh Hop" as its name.
