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

Orange amber color out of the bottle with a foamy off-white head. Really fresh hop nose. As a hop head, I like this beer, but it is one dimensional. The malt character in this is pretty thin, with the hop dominating the flavor profile with lots of grapefruit, pine and orange peel. Soft mouthfeel. Enjoyable hop based beer.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Poured a clear orange-copper color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is big and hopy. Grapefruit, orange, and pine. Flavor of carmal mlat with plenty of grapefruit hop running through. Medium body. Moderate bitter finish lasts a long time.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2005
22oz bottle - Pours copper with a fair offwhite head that settles back to a film and laces pretty well in the shaker. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and just a bit of the alcohol. Flavor starts sweet with caramel malts and blends quickly to pine and citrus hops. Palate is medium bodied and balanced and smooth. Nice bitter finish. A decent IPA but nothing outstanding.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Some alcohol in the aroma, but hefty pine and grapefruit too. No sweetness to the citrus in the aroma, or in the flavor; this even has lemony astringency elements. Body is almost oily. The malt component is more sourdough than sweet. Good.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Clear deep golden/amber with big lacey white head. Lots of citrisy hop aroma and not much else. Starts out bitter and grassy/piney/tangerine and finishes the same way. Just enough malt to balance. Has a lingering bitter finish. I get more tangerine there as well. Some alcohol too. I like this.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Pours a medium amber color with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Heavy hop aroma with a strong grapefruit presence. Strong bitter hop flavor from start to finish with strong citrusy grapefruit notes. Not exactly complex but deliciously hoppy. One dimensional in a good way.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Pours with a full head, good lacing. Body is clear golden, no bubbles. Aroma is sticky, pungent, strong and resinous hops. Balanced sweet malts with a tangy, zesty hops presence. Slightly buttery with a balanced, smooth mouthfeel. Finish is toasted with a hint of alcohol burn. Fun stuff.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2005
pours a rich amber with an off white head that fades down rather quickly. Somewhat sweet malts, but mostly hop bitterness. One dimensional, but a one dimension I like. HOPS!! It’s ok but not my first choice.

FlagstoneHill (214) - Erie, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2005 Cask conditioned, at the brewery. Hazy, dark copper with classic cask pour. Citusry, Floral, hoppy aroma. Up-front hoppiness that is well balanced with the malt. Lingering bitterness. light-medium body. A brew for hop-heads that is well worth seeking. Very tasty and drinkable - especially when cask conditioned. Update on bottle tasting: Carbonation mmore evident, elevates the hoppiness. If you can, try it when cask conditioned. very tasty in the bottle, but more malty (and balanced) when it’s cask conditioned

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Poured a deep amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and grassy hops, not much malt presence. Taste is dry bitter hops with smoky toffee... not very hoppy or drinkable for an IPA. Average body, a little fizzy.
