COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2009 marked the first year of this remarkable beer. We brewed two batches of this beer using hops that were harvested only a few hours before we used them. In addition to the Fresh Hops we used Amarillo, Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade.

Deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thick, six or seven centimetre tall tan head - ridiculous! Aroma of light earthy and slightly floral hops, some light caramel and toffee and a hint of maltiness - fairly light. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops up front with hints of pine, earth, flowers and a bit of toffee sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows well with a hint of alcohol, a nice hoppy flavour that isnít overly powerful and a good sweetness. Overall, a nice beer to try that probably was a bit hoppier when it first arrived here in Alaska! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage, Alaska (Northern Lights Blvd) yesterday on 22-May-2013 for US$6.95 sampled in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013.

swoopjones (5927) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle, golden orange pour. Caramel malt heavy IPA, lighter notes of pine. Probably not imbibed as fresh as brewers intended but decent flavor but hops were dominated by caramel maltiness. Ok

Bottle from Chuckís.

Straightforward Pac NW IPA. Tasty but unexceptional; Amarillo and Simcoe donít do as much here as I would have hoped.

22. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Mild fresh pine nose, very forest-like aroma. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, iced tea, and a heavy resiny finish. Not bad but the dryness and crystal malt compound each other and make the finish a little harsh.

Bomber. Pungent and bitter. Resiny pine, citrus and caramel. A bit flat. Solid IPA bitter finish. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light amber, with big frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops and caramel malts. Flavor is incredibly well balanced between the sweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops. You really can taste the freshness of the hops. This is one of the best balanced beers Iíve ever had. Well done!
