“Wet Hopping,” requires only hops no more than a day from the vine to give mild aroma, but more fresh unfiltered hop flavor. That’s interesting. Had a pleasing fruityness that would grow tiring if had more than one glass. Nice ipa

Creamy head that completely vanished. Very heavy hop aroma, but a bit of a different hop aroma than many others.Could really detect fresh hops, but not much in th eway of anything citrus This was a good, but not great IPA. GD Fresh Hop nails this type of IPA better, I think.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber, yellow fizzy head. Aroma is apple, pear, more sweet fruit than citrus tones. Malt is apparent -- more so than some IPAs. Pretty well balanced overall -- nothing over the top, but quite drinkable. Maybe a bit watery. Not particularly oily. Decent but not stupendous.

I can’t say how much I wish this was available year round. Amazing fresh hop flavor. My name is Cam, and I’m addicted to hops.

22oz bottle-pours a foamy light tan head that laces and copper color. Aroma is balanced floral/pine-hops, medium malt. Taste is floral/pine hops with some bitterness, medium malt-caramel. OK carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a very murky orangy brown with a cream slightly off white head that laced and left sediment down the sides of the shaker. Aroma is hoppy as expected with a lemony citrus nose and little else to smell. Flavor is bitter with grapefruit and a sweetness like honey. Bitter finish but balanced as well. A good beginner’s IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body with a thin off white head. Heavy hop aroma ( I love warrior hops), caramel, honey, with a light spiciness. Taste is a dusty hoppiness with an orange zest and grapefruit with some grape accents.

Color me one moody sombeach, and I happened to be in the mood for this. Rather simple and one sided, but I just dug the type of bitterness - at least tonight I did and feel I would enjoy again. Went well with a rainy night and 1955 Bergman classic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper with a nice off-white head. The aroma is not all that great, but sports some floral hop scents. The palate is medium to thin and reveals a one-dimensional flavor of hop bitterness. It finishes dry--and uninspiring.
