4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A hazy, slightly orange beer with a blond, slightly clouding, and big head. Pretty. Aroma has mangos, pineapples, generic tropical fruits, some papaiyas, nice fructose and grapefruits. Enjoyable, tropical fruits sallad without anything more but that’s not bothering. Taste has mangos and some papaiyas, more grapefruits than in the aroma, pine needles. The bitterness is nice and strong, aromatic, piney with some resin in the end. Long lasting and piney bitterness. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. Tropical fruity but also strongly bitter IPA. Great beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 11.04.14.
A: Lots of green vegetable, almost like pot. Candied tropical fruit is there too.
A: 2 finger head that is retained. Hazy straw yellow body.
T: Green vegetable dominates. Candied tropical fruit, grass, orange, and spiciness are subtle.
P: Crisp and bubbly on the back end. Kind of watery.
O: This was the mildest fresh hop of the season. It was a little too watery. There was some major skunkage going on that really smelled and tasted like pot. It was rough, but good.

Insanely hopped. Expect from that, there is a nice orange color with sediments in it and lots of foam. In the taste is some sweetness in the end, but mainly and almost exclusively hops in smell and taste. Some herbs are also included in the mixture. Rather dry aftertaste.

Bottle. Hazy dark yellow with a big fluffy head. Pineapple, candied oranges, and sweet tarts dominate the flavor. Smooth but, resinous mouthfeel with average carb, high bitterness. Very good

Might be my favorite fresh hop ale. Cloudy orange pour, salty bitter with pine and grassy sharpness. Smells of pine. There’s a soapiness that coats the mouth and hangs around. There’s a touch of bitter soda.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is bright pine, a little dank lemon.
The taste is a building dry bitterness beginning to end. Wonderful.
The texture is crisp.
