COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

Tap at d. b. a. Clear golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly malty and sweet, some earthy/dusty malts with a bit of sulfurous yeasty character as well. Flavour is decent but quite sweet. Bready malts, some toast and sweet honey flavour. Slightly oxidized flavour and I really donít know where the hops are in thisÖ Iíd take the harvest pils over this any day of the week.

Orangy coppery pour with medium head. Malty aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity smell. This one reminds me a lot of the Manayunk wet hopped brew, with the caramel malty flavor backed up by an earthy, sort of fruity yet peaty hop, as such. Complex and well balanced, I had several pints of this.

Overall fresh hop aroma and flavor. As stated in previous ratings, easy drinking APA that leaves a wet hop flavor linger with you.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2006
I am surprised to see this one is an APA. Sampled on draft at Rivertowne Inn in North Huntingdon PA this beer poured a bright bronze color with a small yellow-white head. The aroma is crisp floral hops. The body is a bit thin and watery. The flavor is moderately strong bitter and floral hops with tangy sour malts and a bitter finish.

Draft. Clear gold/copper with creamy white head. Great mild hop/malty aroma. The flavor was mildly sweet with creamy toffe malt and refreashing hop finish. Medium body. Itís about time Victory made a beer thatís worthy.

On tap at the Blue Dog Pub in Lansdale. Man they need to clean their lines. Despite the nasty stuff that the Blue Dog lines may have brought to the beer I felt that I still got enough out of it to provide an honest rating. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, some citrus, toffee, pine and grass. Flavors were a mix of the same. Nice touch of hop bitterness and I liked how the wet hops came across in the flavor on this one.

KSBF 2006. Clear pale metallic-orange body with a frothy white head. Fresh kettle hop smell and a warm worty underbelly with notes of lightly toasted bread. Aroma evokes brew day. Fresh and bright hoppy flavor with good pale malt balance. A nice harvest pale ale at peak freshness.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2006
KSBF. I believe they were pouring this out of 750ml bottles. Poured a medium to deeper golden / amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of fresh hops - pine & grass with some caramel. Tastes of lighter hops (didnít have that fresh, green hoppiness) - grass and pine with caramel. Lighter bitter finish.

On tap at Kennett. Golden amber in color with a little white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma. Floral and piney hops. Smooth and grassy hoppy flavor. Not too much of a bitter flavor though. Caramel notes. This beer is wet hopped. Medium bodied. Finish is hoppy. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 Draught @ Victory. Very appetizing look with golden-amber color and light head. Aroma is sweet and lightly hopped-up. Taste is smooth, not as bitter as most dry-hopped beers, but a very nice change of pace. Will have to try this one again after sampling some other wet-hop beers to get a better feel.
