COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whoa! I guess itís pretty obvious we arenít able to hide our excitement about this Dank Tank offering. Our Wet Dream makes its mark with a full 420 pound load of dripping wet Chinook hops that were hand picked FRESH from the fields at Vinny Van Hornís family farm in Washington State. We overnighted these bad boys to our bat cave in Georgia, and within 24 hours of those juicy little suckers dangling on the vine, we brewed dem up, defining this beautiful 7.5% alc/vol red ale with explosive crazy FRESH hop flavors never seen in these parts before! Wake Up! Cause the Wet Dream in your hand is best enjoyed as FRESH from the brewery as possible. So good itís embarrassing!

Iím glad that they made a Wet Dream to follow their Blue Balls. Bottle at DCís first tasting of 2010. Thin copper colored with no head and no lacing. Caramel aroma (only). Hops are only evident as it warms. Simple flavor, lacks freshness. Average.

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
From DC Local tasting. Courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma is piney, nutty, resiny hops. Taste gives you that sort of old strawberry cheesecake body that takes over less than extremely fresh DIPAs and Fresh Hop IPAs. Hard to really get a good sense of whether this wouldíve kicked ass had it been fresher or was always sort of mediocre.

crossovert (7302) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Limited release form Sweetwater. Pours an orangeish/reddish amber with a large off-white head that quickly dissipates. Leaves some lacing. The smell is very floral and earthy, along with hints of lemon and spice. The first thing I notice with this beer is the watery mouthfeel. It is pretty hoppy with a lot of bitterness and some lemon zest flavor in there. The malt profile of this one is totally bland, this isnít what I would expect from a limited release brew. Overall this is an average brew, just tastes like a hoppier version of this typically over-pedestrian style. The mouthfeel is terrible. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-10-2009 02:47:02 --

CaptainCougar (7130) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle thanks to kp, sampled on 1/10/10: Transparent orange amber pour has a small ring of clingy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of pretty fresh grapefruity hops and some lightly sweet pale malt. Starts with decent fullness and sweet butterscotchy caramel with a pretty good balance of grapefruity hops before a drier, slightly oxidized bittersweet finish. A decent IPA, but could be a little more assertive.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Amber, moderate frothy off-white head, patchy lacing.   Sweet hoppy nose, soft citrus.   A little maple syrup like sweetness.   Some dank basement.   Similar tongue, mild sweet hopiness, a bit of sweetness, some honeycomb.   Its like a sweet IPA, but has some wet sock and general dankness.   A bit musty, some damp basement aspects.   Tiz okay, but could be a bit bigger, sweeter, and hoppier.   Tiz okay tho.   Thanks Rob!

On tap. Had to change my pants when I heard this one was coming out. Clear red with a 2-finger foamy head. Aroma is fresh hop, mainly citrus and pine, and earth. The flavor is big sour citrus hops followed by a bitter earthiness with hints of roasted malts, caramel, and nuttiness. Honestly my favorite part was my burp, it tasted just like fresh hops.
