sloth (2688) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Medium sized, white head with good retention and a lasting, sticky lace.murky, gold colored brew. Nose of oranges, earth, slight bready notes. Body is med/full, tame carbonation, lil tangy. Dry malts are grainy and backed up with nice citrus flavors and some stone fruits. Not over the top but enjoyable. Finish is dry, lightly fruity, hint resiny with a tame bite. Props to 5K for the bomber!

22 oz bottle poured. $6 bomber. Tasty! Pours a glowing orange copper with an uneven bubble head. Very aromatic, this one is. Wonderful hop presence. Flavor is a bready malt base, with a ton of citrus and orange fruit cover. Excellent hop profile. I donít know why Iím surprised, but this beer is awesome. While the fresh hop beers are fading away for the year, Iím glad this one has stuck around. I may grab another.

Prufrockstar (1647) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Draft at Fiddlers. Mets are hurting - sorry beastie, but thereís still a lot of play left in this team. Clear burnt copper pour with creamy white head. Aroma is big on citrus, slightly less big on pine. Lightly sweet; not caramelly; moderately bitter finish. Bright citrus throughout. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: Iím surprised by how much I like this - one of the better fresh hop beers Iíve had this season.

Murky copper with a white head. Aroma is floral and citrus with malt sweetness. Flavor is similarly floral and malty. Lingering strong bitter finish. Not very complex but it is tasty.

WABeerFiend (351) - - JAN 18, 2015
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.
