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.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2009
A nice example of the sty;e with the expected dose of bitter hops & citrus, but also with an earthy and malty mix in there to round it out. Well balanced with a lingering bitter finish.

rondphoto (2024) - 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 (11932) - 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 (203) - 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.

Chudwick (2147) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bomber (best by 01/04/14 - a little old but hopefully well worth the 99 cents I paid plus tax) into Le Listermann - nose is caramel and pine. Sip adds citrus and the minty raw hop smell from a freshly opened package of hops. Light body with grapefruit aftertaste. Well worth the 99 cents plus tax. Enjoyable bitterness that is mildly checked by the maltiness.

Nische (714) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2014
It poured a hazy orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was sweet, malty, caramel and somewhat hoppy with pine and citrus. The taste was quite sweet and a little bitter.
