Poured an orange/amber hue with white head. Smelled of citrus and had some notes of bread. Tasted of pine and lemon, but also had a spiciness similar to wasabi.

750ml bottle 2012, poured into my snifter beautifully. Clear, but deep amber colored, red almost. Atop sits a four finger, serious head. Creamy and off white, looks gorgeous. Aroma is off the charts. Fresh, earthy and citrusy hops and toasty, oatmeal-like malted barley. The effort and craftsmanship of this beer are extrodinary. The taste pulls out tons of unique flavors from the wet hopping process, crisp grapefuit rind bitterness, balanced nicely by vanilla earthy sweetness, toasty caramel malts back it up nicely. Smells and tastes hand crafted, hand made, home brewed! The mouthfeel is outstanding, nice full body and great carbonation. This is a fantastic beer, Iím glad I got to try this super fresh IPA even though Iím on the opposite side of the country.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of green hops with light sweet notes and light bitter notes. Taste is a solid mix between some green hops with a solid caramel malt backbone with medium amount of residual sugars. Green hops notes are really pleasant with some good notes of citrus flavours. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Really good wet hop ale and something I would love to have more regular access to.

Pours amber with an extremely thick head. Aroma initially is a beautiful sweet pine scent, but is that a little chocolate malt or carob in the background? Taste is off the charts good! First comes the resinous pine and caramel followed by those chocolate-like malts. This is one of the best IPAís Iíve had and very well balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Pours an orange, amberish color with a two and a half finger off white head. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of grass, earthiness, some floral, a little grapefruit. Some dankness to it. Not an overpowering smell. Taste starts with the earthy qualities and grass, a little fruitiness. Then the hops are neutralized in the middle from the barley and malts. Get lots of breadiness. Like a popcorn flavor. Then finishes with the hops: get some pine, more grass and earthy qualities, some grapefruit and floral notes. Slightly bitter finish, but not as much as I thought it would be. Light medium mouthfeel, but has a nice creaminess to it and the carbonation does clean the palate after every sip which makes for a more refreshing beer. Shows off the wet hops pretty well, but I just think it is lacking something. Could be an older bottle. Not bad.
