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.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Bomber to snifter. Orangish copper,no head on first pour.Mild aroma of fruit/floral,particularly melon,some complexity,some potent spice pokes in,some resin/dankness.Some sweet carmel malt.Aroma seems to become more noticable and complex .Hop aroma really envelopes and becomes less mild. Prettty nice taste,some carmel malt backbone with toffee notes,spicey hops budge in with some mild fruit/floral and more of pine.Smooth,mildly slick, hoppy,clean but malty with some sweetness but not too dry. Spicey/pine bittering doesnt linger too long,pretty smooth not too sharp.

Pours a deep ruby red color, with an off white head that dissipates over time to a nice ring around the tulip glass. Aroma is bright citrus flavors, with grass pine notes as well. A sweet malt backbone is present. Taste is similar to the nose, with tons of citrus and resiny pine. I’ll be buying another one. Medium body, dry finish. I’ll be buying another!

dlovell2 (836) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours a rich copper color with a off white head. Caramel malt aroma with citrus and pine. Sweet caramel malt start with some toffee ,fruitiness, and grass. Finishing with a fresh resiny pine. Not very bitter and no lingering bitterness. Possibly the best wet hopped beer I’ve had. The pine flavor in this one is really nice.

Bomber. Sweet caramel malt aroma with light hoppy notes. Pours amber colored with about one finger of white head with good retention and lacing. Taste starts with sweet caramel malt with a very light bodied mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and just a touch dry with slight piney hop notes. Good, refreshing ipa.

rondphoto (2088) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 23, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Appealing clear medium amber, bubbly rim head, no lace. Taste is caramel malt that becomes rich toffee in the palate before adding assertive, but not overpowering, hops in a medium length finish that also sees a strong dose of effervescence. Good to drink, but hardly enough hops to qualify as an IPA.

Travlr (12351) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle at first DC tasting of 2010. Orange with a white head that settles quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma of gun metal, grass and licorice. Strange combo. Bitter and dry hoppy flavor throughout. Mediocre.

minihame2 (207) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 5, 2014
Hazy brown body, tan head. Faint aroma, mostly hops and some citrus. Soft mouthfeel, carbonation is not very strong. Soft taste with some bitterness. Quite an easy IPA. Not that interesting but alright nevertheless.
