Quite a surprise for me really, having not been entirely impressed with previous years offerings. A deep amber pour, resiny smell of hops, all very well structered... This tastes like a very fresh, high quality, top shelf ingredient, no expense spared beverage... which it is. I loved it, its a great beer, just dont expect it to be like losing your virginity all over again... its just a REALLY WELL MADE BEER.

Excellent beer! Pours a full copper color with a full body hop aroma filled with grapefruit and citrus. The taste is lightly malty with a moderately bitter finish.

Hazy orange with off white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus rind. Taste follows nose. A litter over balanced to the bitter side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pale copper in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, wet grain and wet grass. Vague citrus, sprouted grains, toasted sesame seeds and earth in the mouth. Moderate bitterness. The whole sprouted grain and earthy notes seemed to interfere too much with any hop goodness. Only average.

Shared a bomber with Jennifer. In a word, delicious. Pours beautifully- rich orange with red hue, generous, fluffy white head and lacing for days. Clings to the glass for dear life. Really easy to drink and a subtle and classy way. Hop notes come through but don’t overpower- think pine, orange, earth, floral and just the right malt bill for sweet caramel, bready notes. Finish is crisp and somewhat bitter, but pleasant. Love the fact that everything is grown on site- pretty special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle-Friday Night Flights @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, ivory head cover, dots and spots of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that grows and becomes sweeter in the palate, adding clear floral hops early in a lingering finish. A big, satisfying brew, palate cleansing and refreshing. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish clear color with a good thick head. Aroma is hoppy, earthy, pine, citrus, resin, grapefruit, caramel, and a thick biscuit note to finish. Taste is clean, crisp, hoppy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, followed by the biscuit and malt. Average beer, not quite worth the price I feel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a 750ml bottle.
Pours a clear dark copper with a thick foamy off-white head. Outstanding head retention with equally good lacing.
Aroma is understate but full of dank hops with plenty of piney notes. Just a touch of grapefruit stuck in there.
The flavor is nearly all hops up front with plenty of spiciness along with resiny pine. There are some touches of tropical fruit but they are more understated. A good malt base with a little bit of roast and biscuit. Bitterness is quite high and lingers long after a slightly sticky finish.
Overall, a very good beer but it stops short of being outstanding. I love the fact that it is a wet hop ale and all the ingredients were grown on site.
