COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment kind of thing. This year we’ve chased down Virgil Gamache farms, famed amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy big white head. Good lacing. Nose is citrus zest/ Full in body with a resinous mouth feel. Flavor is very strong citrus hops with a long bitter dry finish. Great beer.

corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with sheets of soapy lacing on the way down. Slightly earthy aroma with a really strong pilsner malt presence. Dank floral hops with subtle citrus, fresh cut grass and pine needle countered by strong pilsner malt backbone with straw, bread, biscuit and light, especially apple and pear. Kind of tame for the style. Full body than expected with a crisp hop bite that lingers over the bready yeast sweet pilsner malts into a nice dry finish. Dank and earthy with strong hints of grass, resinous oil and pine sap. Nice bitterness lingering throughout. This is countered by tropical and citrus fruit sweetness with some tart grapefruit, sweet pineapple and lemon peel. Pale biscuit malt backbone with light fruit esters. Well balanced and deceptively drinkable.

Going off memory - had it almost a year ago but thought it was a very good beer. Anything with amarillo hops is usually a good beer.

badpuppy69 (322) - orange, California, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a clear amber Brown color with creamy soapy head. Aroma is citrus light caramel malt and some barnyard hop funk. Taste follows the aroma well with a nice barnyard hop funk bill. Wet medium mouth feel that makes you want to slam it.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours. Dark golden with a thick beige head snd a floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. Refreshing.

had fresher than last years. a ton of floral and citric hops both in the nose and flavor without all the bitterness. Very easy going, yet delicious.
