COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed only once a year with fresh hops hand-picked in Longmont, CO and Warrior hops straight off the vine from Yakima, WA.
Warrior is brewed using a unique style called “Wet Hopping,” which requires only hops that are no more than a day from the vine. “Wet Hopping” imparts only a mild aroma, but an exceptionally fresh unfiltered hop flavor.
2010 vintage 7.6% abv

piscator34 (2093) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2006
Light amber in colour and well carbonated. Loads of floral aromatics, along with some lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and subtle pine. Some mild caramel malt flavor up-front, with stronger pine and light citrus on the finish. Quite drying... to the point of being a little hollow mid-palate. A bit more (and more complex) malt profile could help. Solid, but not a favorite. Thanks to mnurda for bringing this one in.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2006
22oz. bottle. Golden orange with a small white head. Syrupy malt, spicy and piney hop aromatics. Grassy "wet hop" herbal flavors dominate. Some citrus and pine, and subdued maltiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light, rather dry and crisp.

Darkover (1525) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Dark bronze color with a beige head. Nice floral/piney hop aroma. Flavor is pretty much all hops(pine and citrus), but it is pretty mild. Finish is long and mildly bitter.

Decent IPA, very hopped up, with a whole lotta flavor! Very fresh with aspringlike quality to it, I would love to drink this on a high mountain somewhere

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Pours a very clear garnet with beige fluffy head. The aroma is a very distinct fresh wet hop. Grapefruit and citrus hops. Has a character very similar to Three Floyds Dreadnaught. Fresh strong active hop flavors. Great grapefruit and pine hope with very clean and distinct tannin and hop oils. Once the initial hop bitterness becomes familiar, a nice lightly toasted malt is noticable underneath. Hops are a little bit too powerful since the malt is only slightly noticeable, but it’s still a strong, bold, and plesant beer. Aromas are similar to Dreadnaught from the hop side, but it’s not quite as deeply ballanced or powerful as Dreadnaught.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Big white head with yellow body that let you know there was very little malt to balance right from the start. Pine-sol aroma, thin hop juice. Glad this one is over.

Tmoney99 (11711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Bomber bottle. Pours a dark amber with an average frothy off-white head that was lasting. Heavy hoppy citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy hoppy bitter flavor with a long refreshing finish. Very good IPA.

OldGrowth (2876) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, sweet. Got an initial ripe fruit, like apricot, that disappeared as it warmed. Citrus, caramel, pine, little grassy and sourdough too. Clean brownish orange color, Ok head that faded quickly. Nice lacing. Bitter flavors, like aroma. Grapefruit and grassy dominates. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Nice brew. Went down quickly.

ross (2122) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2005
orange colored, no head. fairly harsh and pretty bitter for a normal ipa. lacks the full body of an iipa though. pine, grassy, hoppy, etc. not a bad ipa. took a while to drink it too. this is an ipa that isnt for people that arent sure if they like the style. pretty offensive, but not for a hophead.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 22 oz bomber. Pours a light amber with a thin white head, but with nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of citrus, and a tangy hop smell. The taste is all hops, with a bitter finish. It has a very clean flavor, but is pretty simplistic. Just too many bitter hops in ther for me... it dominates the flavor too much.
