COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that celebrates the hop! You can’t get fresher or greener than this. Made with freshly picked, whole leaf, “wet hops” these off-the-vine beauties will encourage you to DRINK FRESH, DRINK LOCAL, and DRINK NOW!

The hops varietal changes each year. 2012 is Citra

So, I’ve actually drank this several times without realizing it was a separate rate. Can you imagine? Drinking a rateable beer with out rating it? Who would do such a crazy, irresponsible thing? Anyway, It’s good. Light malts and a fresh, citrusy hop bite. Seems lower than 6.6% abv, actually. Dangerously drinkable...

Lemongrass, apricot, and raw earthiness. Some pineapple maybe? Pours a deep amber with quickly fading head. The Citra hops are a fun change of pace from the ’C’ family.

Bottle. Orange caramel malt and spicy orange peel aroma. Hazy amber with minimal head. Sweet orange/mango malt and lightly bitter citrus peel flavor. Nice.

queenholly (2860) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Suttree. Floral earthy hops, apricot, light piney aroma. Amber with a moderate ivory head. Fruity floral hops flavor backed up nicely by lightly sweet malt. Medium body and carbonation. Hops are smooth and fresh tasting, and the malt isn’t too sweet or cloying. I’m really diggin’ these fresh hoppy brews that manage to be bitter without being bitter. I don’t know how else to explain it.

22 ounce thanks to James. Hoppy in aroma and a bit in taste, but body overall doesn’t maintain the harvest fresh hop as much as I’d like. Still, tasty.

2012 bottle almost red amber pour. dank hop aroma. Lots of grass and pine. Resiny. Good carb. Very drinkable. Maybe a bit light for an IPA.

So Fresh & So Green is one tasty IPA with the Citra hops prominent in the aroma, taste and aftertaste. It is surprisingly not bitter for an IPA with the Citra hops imparting a flavor of fresh cut grass mixed with citrus. The right amount of carbonation makes the hop flavors last filling every cranny of your nasal passages. Get So Fresh & So Green while you can - 2012 is almost over.

Draft at Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tropical hops, lemongrass and pale malts. The taste is pale malts, lemongrass, tropical and earthy hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle poured into a willie. Nice amber color, with a small white head that fades into a ring. very little lacing. Floral, and citrus hop aroma. Medium body, good balance of sweet malts with and pineapple, and peach hop flavors finishes slightly bitter. Overall a great beer that highlights one of my favorite hops.
