phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2010
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place, shared by Matt at The Royale Tuesday night beer showcase. Hops harvested in 2009, brewed and bottled in April 2010. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a small white head. Aroma of minerals, straw, pale malts, light grassy hops, wood, earth, and dust. Flavor is mostly the same as the nose, with some overripe apples and sweeter malts. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation and an earthy, malty mouthfeel. Dry finish. Interesting beer.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Thanks after4ever! Green wet hoppy aroma, some chewy biscuit. Slightly hazy yellow gold, bubbly white head. Sweet lavender, almost directly herbal, specific hop bitterness is young and subtle.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The aromatics express spicy clove, fuzzy fruits, fallen apples and earthy, woody hops. Full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor is spicy and fruity. Nice bitterness; clean sweetness. Fruity, bittersweet finish. More sweet than bitter.

Tampa Weekly Gathering @BT Brandon-thanks Ibrew2or3-500ml bottle–pours a rich white head with trailing lace and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is lemon/spice hops, some light malt. Taste is lemon/spice hops bite, secondary light malt/some yeast. Good effervescence. Drying.

Not much of a nose on it, nice head retention, great hazy yellowish orange color, nice balance of hops and leaves a great hoppy floral character in the aftertaste. Solid hoppy beer from the UK!

rubbishystuff (1963) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2010
This was the Green Hopped 2009 Harvest. Very tasty. Strong hop flavors. One of the more floral hop tasting IPAs I’ve had. Cloudy and a touch sweet. Well done. Serving: Bottle

Ibrew2or3 (7312) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Half liter pours hazy deep gold with bright white head. The aroma is grapefruit, citrus cotton candy, spicy yeast, mild sweet ripe apple and faint berry-ness. The taste is smooth rolling up gently into citrus hop flavor, apple notes, spicy yeast and a mild level of floral hops. It picks up citrus and spicy hop bitterness to midway and into the finish. Nice easy drinkin’ brew, nearly dangerously drinkable.

Strykzone (5342) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
A nice looking beer, this is cloudy golden, well carbonated, and a soapy white head. Nice retention. Aroma is very floral with some yeast. Flavor is also floral with that yeast. Sweet and gentle fruit, light spice, pine, and moderate bitterness. Extra credit for being unique. The hops did taste cask which was cool in a bottle.

downender (6718) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Portcullis Hopfest, Bristol 10/10/10. Golden in colour with a slight white head. Yeasty, sweet, fruity aroma with some grassy hop. Flavour of sweet malts, with slightly herbal, citrus hops and dry finish. The alcohol was well hidden.
