Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 09.16.14. A: Strong grapefruit and orange. Very citrusy. A: 1 finger head that recedes to a ring of bubbles with nice lacing. Cloudy orange body. T: Grapefruit, orange, and hop resin dominate. Pineapple is subtle. P: Creamy with a crisp back end. O: The hop resin is super strong as it should be. This is my first fresh hop beer and it was very interesting to compare against. It has a green plant-like flavor. It was very enjoyable.

22oz bottle, received as an extra in trade, thanks Ben. Pours a clear, deep Amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, orange, some pine, medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, some cereal, some caramel, pine hops, grapefruit, tangerine, with a light, citrus, bitter hop finish. Very tasty. Wish this was in my distribution.

Pours a golden hue. Lots of hops on the nose and transfers well to the taste. With slight resin and vegetable notes. Really great fresh hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The huge hoppy aroma and gigantic head are the first things that stand out. A delightful mix of pine, citrus, and grass. This carries over to the flavor with a blend of fresh Simcoe, Amarillo, Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade hops. Thankfully, they didnít ignore the malt as the backbone stands up to the hops. Biting and bitter, as an IPA should be, this celebrates hops without being heavy handed. Although it does pack 70 IBUs and 6.2% ABV. Itís really, really good.
