Our first-ever seasonal can release arrives today, and it is brewed as a true celebration of this special moment in time. We made a trip out to Yakima Valley to the oldest continually operating hop farms in the country, and met with Patrick Smith, a 3rd generation hop grower. We selected and harvested 800 pounds of fresh “wet hops”

Leighton (14705) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Can at JFK a few years back, picked up from New Beer Distributors. Pours clear copper with a fine, white head. Herbal and piney hops dominate, with lightly sweet, toasty and bready malts, faint tangy citrus fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with bitter earth and leaves, some crackers, toasted malts. Not pleasurable. Perhaps not in optimal condition.

Drake (10841) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention. Big spicy, peppery hop aroma with faint bits of pumpkin. The taste is huge herbal and peppery hop notes with a mild pumpkin and spice finish. Medium bodied. Doesn’t come across much like a pumpkin ale.

adnielsen (10145) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of some generous trader. Another unfortunate brew that got lost in the back of my parent’s refrigerator. Oh yeah, here goes. Cloudy, reddish orange appearance with a big, bubbly, tan head. Quite spicy, ginger, somewhat piney, toasty malty aroma. Caramel, pumpkin, ginger, richly piney hoppy, toasty malty flavor. Not bad.

Sammy (9823) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
Can from NY state. Hoppy aroma, light orange coloured body with 3/8" of retained head. Firt I taste the hops, and then the spice in the finish led by ginger and pumpkin. Hoppy pumpkin beer, in a word. Decent drinkability, but not something I will seek out again. Average mouthfeel, above average carbonation.
