This special, once a year beer is produced with 400 pounds of freshly picked, "wet" Glacier hops from Goschie Farms in Silverton, OR. The hops were only 4 hours old when they went into the kettle. The mash tun was also used as a hop back, holding 280 pounds of hops!!! This beer features a huge grassy, floral, herbal and melon hop aroma and a firm malt background.

Tap at Rose and Raindrop. Deep, clear copper colored brew with a fair sized off-white head. great lacing is left behind. Superbly floral hop aroma. Medium to full bodied. Nice balance with a fresh wet hop bitterness that can be a bit vegetal but pleasant. Well done!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap this pours amber, very clear, with a small white head. Very big green hop aroma with just a touch of caramel sweetness. This beer had a bit more normal hop character than the deschutes fresh hop, while still retaining the massive fresh green hop taste. The green hops kinda give it an almost tea like character.
