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.

Good floral aroma. Orange/copper body with good head, lacing and had particles floating arround inside the glass. Had a good hop flavor of citrus. Went down good on the palate and enjoyable beer.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2005
amber body, white foamy head, citrusy smell. sweet citrus flavor early with a little bit of caramel in the end of the flavor, a nice dry hoppy finish. i thought this had a very nice balance...a perfect amount of hops to keep the bitterness in check

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2005
22oz. bomber thanks to Bierbauch. Amber color with a small tan head. Hoppy, piney aroma with some malt in the background. Never knew what Warrior hops tasted like before, but I’m glad I do now. Citrusy, piney with just enough malt background for balance.

egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste of citrus grapefruit, pine hoppiness, and a touch of caramel malt.

desurfer (1211) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2005
Amber body, thick tan head. Aroma is mostly piney hops with some sweet caramely maltiness. Flavor is nice and hoppy; not overly bitter, but very fresh-tasting. Not much I can say besides that this is a tasty, very good IPA.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 15, 2005
22 oz bottle. Pours amber with a thin, lasting head and lot’s of lacing. Awesome resin hoppy aroma. Taste is right where you want it to be, perfectly highlighting the sole hop used. Fresh citrus with a citrus hoppiness is the flavor of the day. Finishes puckering dry. Very impressive.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Bottle from World of Beer. Pours a murky dark amber-orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white big cumulus head. The aroma is of some citrus and pine, but it really smells of that freshly opened hop pellet bag. The flavor follows suit....maybe providing some decent maltiness, but make no mistake--this one is all about bitter hops. Pretty light bodied with very lively carbonation. Finish is long, astringent and very bitter. This was ok, but not my favorite IPA.

jefcon (1363) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Orange-golden with a little slightly off-white head. Aromas are of a forward hoppy aprocot. Tastes follow, with dry cherry/spice/ham undertones. I agree with tasters who identify grapefruit, too. A sharp and bitter IPA, but not the sharpest or bitterest. Palate is fine, but a little short and carbonated for an IPA.

TChrome (1415) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Beer pours cloudy orange color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is very grassy with a hint of pine. Flavor is very citricly hoppy. Mouthfeel is solid.
