4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Ginger Man, beer came to the table bright & champagne-bubbly-frothy. Resin-pine-forward, citrus notes in the back on the nose, very fresh. A well-built beer- tasting malt in the middle (with hops to start & end)- enough malt so that the wet hops don’t run away with the show. Nicely bitter, makes your mouth water for the next sip, pleasantly carbonated, clings to your mouth in the best way. Actually was dangerously drinkable (higher ABV)- but no more than 2 in a sitting due to taste-bud overload from the hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to pint glass. Floral, citrus and massive rose petal aroma! Pours a clear copper with full white head that is moderately sustained and patterns nicely with webbing down the glass. Flavor is heavy rose petal with moderate, rich caramel. Moderate high bitterness and a very dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber with a small white head and plenty bubbles, I believe it is unfiltered. Smells like a bouquet of hops, really quite floral almost sweet on the nose. Light bodied with nice amount of carbonation and the head gives it a creamy type of finish. Taste of lightly resinous hops, some grapefruit and grassy, earthy flavors in there. Nice mouth-feel and easy drinking, that’s about it.

A bit average bordering on disappointing. The aroma is lacking and the flavors are understated. Wet hop beers are just not going to be consistent, ever...

Pours a dark amber-orange with a wonderful white head. Aroma is sticky, funky hops. Taste is earthy, piney, woody, citrus, fruity, finish is nice bitter with more acidity. Not as good as the Equinox Hop IPA oh well... Still delicious.

Golden on pour, with a huge head that dissipates slowly. Hoppy, well balanced with malt and fruit aromas. Bitterness at start, then sweet, then finishes bitter. Fairly dry palate, but with a long finish.
