COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recently, some fresh picked, skunky, funky smelling green hops showed up at the brewery. It was HARVEST TIME. Each year, right around the time that the weather starts to cool, fresh sticky hops are picked off of the vine and sent to us overnight so we can use them in a "Fresh Hop" or "Harvest" ale. This is done quickly so we can use these little guys before they lose a single bit of their intensely dank aromas and flavors.

Bottle from scotchzi at Proof. Pours an amber/caramel color with almost no head and very thin collar. Aroma is mostly medium malt sweetness. Taste has some slight tropical hop notes; otherwise, just the medium maltiness. Medium body and light carbonation.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Astringency really brings this one down. The flavor is lightly citrusy hops on a sticky and too sweet malt body, but what really hampers the beer is a lasting bitter/astringent character that lingers for minutes after the last gulp is done. Blahhh.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is large citrus notes and bready malt. Flavor is sweet malt, some bread, and a good citrus bitter. Very nice beer

UDBeernut (1843) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle split with wife. Pours hazy brown, off white head. Pines and dank nose. Taste has ample bitterness, toasted malt. Light pine in the finish that lingers. Excellent.

GreatDane1632 (581) - North Dakota, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 27 Jun 2014 -- Poured from the bottle, not usually a wet hopped fan, but this was really good. The mix of malt, hop, and wet-hop grassiness/vegetable flavors was really well done. Subtle and tasty.

burg326 (3877) - Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured a light golden color with aromas of caramel, fresh hops and some peppery pine. Flavors are the same however some fresh green hops come out in the flavor. A nice little fresh IPA that is best fresh

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared at the 8th Richmond Industry Gathering, 12/1/13. Pours a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of peppery, herbal, pine hops, caramel malts. The taste is green, resin and pine hops, caramel malts. Medium bodied.

suprchunk (2342) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Deep amber colored pour. Big off-white head that quickly falls. Plenty of lacing. A initial aroma of citrusy hops. Taste is malty with some hops. Not as hoppy as I would have, and do, expect. Not a bad beer though. More of an English IPA.

smith4498 (3066) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours hazy amber color with off white head. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits and some caramel. Similar flavors, but more malty and less hoppy than I prefer. Medium body with average carbonation.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Yellow pour, white head. Sweeter than I would like, hops are a bit lost and not cohesive in this one. Grainy and needs some work IMO.
