4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a bomber into a satan glass (wide flute). Beautiful amber color, semi-transparent and a thick white head.
Wow. It smells like a handful of green hops. Exactly what I was expecting for a wet hop ale. Citrus and a little malt scent getting in there too.
I was expecting more bitterness... but this is still great. Subtly bitter with the malty sweet coming through more. Though not really sweet, just more than bitter.
Soft and medium body. Light carbonation. Very nice.
Very drinkable. The mouthfeel is wonderful. A great looking beer with a nice smell to it. The taste was the only part not bring it strong, but it was still very nice.

Red, with a loose white head. Smells like fresh, grassy hops. Tastes is fresh hops, as well. Not a whole lot of extra dimensions to this, but I really like it. Tap, Flying Saucer, Nashville.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
from Dec 2010, Little darker than I expected. Aroma falls flat for me on this one actually with some alcohol in the nose. With the wet hop variety i don’t necessarily expect overpowering hops in the face. Little bit of sweetness would be a good base were there more hops here. There are some pleasant green notes behind this. Mouthfeel is full and could drink a bunch of these but I probably would find something else.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. First reviewed 1/5/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Filtered and mostly transparent, the color is transparently amber, with a touch of ruby in the middle. A fizzy off-white head forms initially but quickly fades to a ring and a few spots on top. Not really any lace.
A little bit of bready malt and then a long, full pine aroma. Not incredibly strong, but it seems like the wet hops have a more robust aroma.
There is some biscuity malt up front in the flavor, but the focus is on the robust pine hops. A full and bitter flavor, the wet hop flavor really comes through. I like that the taste really lets the flavor of the wet hops come through, the problems is just that that flavor either isn’t amazing or that aspect of the beer is not executed that well. Bitterness builds and sticks around through the finish.
The mouthfeel starts crisp on the tongue, with a creaminess coming into play as the sip progresses. A ton of oily hop residue left on the tongue, sort of a paint-peeling effect on the tongue.
This is all right. The search continues for great wet hop beers.

22 ounce bottle that pours a rust orange color, with aromas of caramel, grass, pine resin, and citrus. Flavor is much the same, balancing out the hoppiness with caramel, not to much of a bitter bite, decent beer overall.

Tap at Flying saucer Yes! This beer is as good as its hilarious name! Pours a beautiful dark Amber color surprisingly dark for an 6.6 ipa. Taste is an awesome sweet hop with a candy finish. Sweetness really hides the higher abv. This is a solid ipa! Could use a bit less sweetness and a little more hop bite. Other than that yes please to another!!
