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.

From the tap at the brewery in Longmont. All around complete IPA and very enjoyable. The hoppiness was attenuated, I suppose. Good aroma, great taste from the tap. I’ll drink more in the future.

Malty hoppy flavor to start with a nice bitter finish. Tastes very fresh and us crushable. Pours deep orange red in color. Smelks malty. Had at home from a bomber ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 9, 2014
Tap at AQ Bevolution 2nd Anniversary event at Yellow Ape Craft. Sweet malty nose. Reddish/orange color. Malty initial, hoppping buzzes up and cuts through the caramel, balances in late mid and final. Interesting IPA variant with the color and thick malt. Very nice mid-palate jumps of bitterness.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear amber with a gray head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy pine with a hint of resin and earthy grain backing. Flavor has lots of earthy pine with touches of grains and grass underlying.

Has a 1 finger head. Very clear mild body ale. The aroma is piney, like walking in an evergreen forests. Tastes pine, resin, with a nice bitterness. Little drying but very palatable. Love the fresh cascade.
