UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Update- Also had on draft: Malty peach flavor upfront with more vibrant mouthfeel. Great clarity. On cask at Toad in the Hole: Piney hop aroma and burnt golden color without head and very few bubbles (cask).Flavor broadens with each sip on a light caramel base accentuated/dominated by prickly ginger mouthfeel. There is pine, peach. earthy grapefruit and bitters echoing throughout. Must be the fresh hops. Not heavy-bodied as expected with a little bit of haze and yeast bits at the bottom of the glass of this welcomed pils.

Draft, Toronado Wet Hop Festival. All of these beers are awesome. In comparison to the others, the Sublimmminal has an apple taste, almost sour, and very smooth on the palate.

a beautiful ESB off the beer engine at the toronado. sweet malt, hint of caramel and orange aroma from the hops. it is velvet in the mouth and oranggey sweet to finish. nice pint!

Cask. I never know what to call these wet hop beers, but this oneís not overly hoppy. Rich amber beer with a nice off-white head. Nice piney, malt aroma. Rich caramel malt flavor with good pine and citrus. Nice balance. Body a little light. Lingering balanced malt, pine, and some fruitiness.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Draft @ The Wet Hop Event at the Hayward Bistro. This beer pours a clear light copper with thin white head. The aroma is light with mild malt sweetness combined with fresh grapefruit hops and some spicy hops. I forgot how Cascade hops have a spicy side to them. The flavor has mild maltiness and both mild grapefruit hop flavor and bitterness. Nothing really stands out. Itís pretty smooth and even.

Draft at OíBrienís. Lots of sweet aromas. Sweet flavors too. Not very bitter at all. The notes I have said there were no Kettle Hops. I guess thatís why thereís no bitter finish? Interesting, and not bad.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Tap @ O’brien’s 1st of Wet Hop Fest. Pours orange with a bright white head Nose is sweet with resin hops. Taste is balanced malted pale ale. simple but good.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Draft @ The Bistro Wet Hop Fest. Clear and bright, dark amber in color. Very little, if any, aroma comes from this beer. Malty and clean flavor. Not IPA-ish to be sure. A great beer but it doesnít showcase hops well (if thatís the point- I donít know).

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap at the Linkery. Deep golden hazy beer with a thick white head. The aroma is pretty nice. Crisp clean crackery malts with a soft floral/herbal hoppy aroma as well. Flavour is quite well-balanced. Clean crackery malts, soft sweetness and a kiss of vienna malts. Minerally but floral hoppiness. Pretty nice beer, really.

I wouldn’t have guessed this was a Pilsener when I had it. On hand-pump, which really made the hop flavors sing. The malt was a bit over powering for the hops (for a fresh hop). A decent beer, although it should have more hops for a wet hop or less of everything for a pilsener. Regardless of description, it was a good brew.
