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.

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
I tried this from a 22 oz. bomber. A- orange color with a 3 finger thick head that left a nice lace patter. Highly carbonated S-Very fresh with a floral hop smell of citrus and grass T- fresh well balanced floral orange flavor with a moderate degree of fresh hops that did not leave a long lingering aftertaste. Very smooth. M-Smooth and slightly bitter carbonated brew D-Very smooth and enjoyable. This beer could be consumed in very large quantities in a short period of time if given the chance. Great floral IPA.

TaktikMTL (6919) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Bouteille de 22 oz achetée chez Bark’s Beer Cave (Plattsburgh, NY) au coût de 7,00$. Arôme: Odeur de pamplemousse avec une pointe de pin. Apparence: La couleur est orangée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de pamplemousse avec une pointe de pin et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’amertume d’houblon en arrière goût. (Rating #6835)

tillmac62 (640) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2016
BBD 1/13/16. Clear amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of orange and light pine over biscuit coupled with a bit of earthy spice. Light body with a texture similar to that of water but coupled with an outstanding oily slickness. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is very good. This is a hop flavor focused beer with moderate bitterness that is balanced with toasty biscuit and caramel. Like the nose, orange dominates with pine and spicy elements in the background. Along with moderate bitterness in the middle, caramel makes a strong appearance. The finish is semi-dry and a hint of alcohol astringency arrives over a lingering slightly sweet rind/pine bitterness.

StefanSD (2307) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber. Pours copper with a big fluffy off-white head that has good retention. Aroma of wet pine needles and a trace of fresh grapefruit. The taste, likewise, is more piney that citrusy and set in a light caramel malt base that is slightly sweet. The palate is medium, finishes sweet. Overall: Very easy drinking IPA, good stuff.

vandc01 (309) - North Branch, USA - JAN 6, 2016
22oz bottle pour from home with a best by date of 1/13/16 (one week from review). Pours a light reddish color with nice fluffy head. A solid beer...not bad...but not mind blowing either.

trapped (2025) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 28, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Clear dark orange with small frothy off-white head, very faint malt aroma, low carbonation, bitter lemon peel taste, long bitter finish. Very much citrus dominated.

Listigovers (744) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
650ml fresh hop. Huge fresh hop smell, gorgeous red amber pour. Really amazingly beautiful beer. Tastes well balanced, rich hop flavor builds and rolls on your tongue. Really exceptional.

Ron (3422) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a transparent light orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; fresh Warrior hops with a pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel.

snoworsummer (4303) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bomber from the brewery. Pours almost clear bright copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit hops, caramel malt, some resin, nutty, toasted. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like caramel malt, grapefruit hops, toasted nuts, and some resin.

sonnycheeba (4817) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear gold. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, floral notes, citrus, and faint toasted color. Flavor is dry and deliciously hoppy with a sharp citrus and piney bite and faint caramel malt sweetness. Medium body.

TattooJack (443) - Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Poured from a coupla bombers (@5.99 each), looks reddish with a one finger white collar. This has got a little bit of a lot of things but nothing jumps up and takes the lead. Some sticky resin, pine, average to good alcohol content, metallic, dry, and a bit creamy. Was just looking for more from the hops.
