Tap @ Green Dragon... Poured amber with an off-white head. Strong hops on the nose. Nice dry hops with a caramel presence. Delicious hops through out the whole drink and sort of a woodsy finish that was a bit earthy.

Draft. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt as well as light notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and the body is thin.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pouring at the Oregon Fresh Hops Festival--Poured a light orange-golden-amber color with a thin, wispy white head. Nose of grassy, fruity hops and mildly sweet grains. Taste was a peculiar hoppiness with sweet maltiness in the finish. Overall, however, the finish was thin and somewhat watery. Skunky and funky as can be. Not one of my favorite fresh hop brews, but okay.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lucky Lab and fresh hop sounded great, but I found myself not enjoying this beer and wondering why. I haven’t found many beers from the LL in the past that I haven’t liked. This beer was so light and watery, I know the subtleness was to amplify the fresh hop flavor, but the hop profile of this tasted funky, touch of cat pee. Overall the wateriness of this was overwhelming, no body, very mild wet hop sweetness. Just not what the wet hop beers are about.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: Pours a cloudy orange-bronze with a thin white head. Nice fresh hop aroma with some sweet malts in there. Flavor is lightly malty and semi-bitter with a nice big floral hop finish with a hint of those oily finish as it dries crisply on the tongue. Easy drinking and good but could have used even more fresh hops.

[Tastival 2006 SNOB Event – Tap]
A nice fresh hopped brew. This had a ton of different added hops. The beer was refreshing and had a malt balance with the hops that was very unique. I liked this beer a lot and loved the hops that added to the flavor. It was said it had 4 different hops used. Good stuff.
