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 lagery-pilsner medium yellow. Light head. Light lace. Aroma is kinda belgian golden like,sweet malt aroma. Kinda grassy and like pilsner aroma . Bready,lemon citrus notes. Nobel hop like. Taste is light grainy/bready malty sweet pilsner like,grassy,lemon,spicey,nobel hop like-I swear im drinking a strong pilsner here. Sweetness comes off a bit cloying almost. Decent beer not my thing,and I think Ive had better pilsners.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, grapefruit, lemon zest, grassiness, light orange zest and a hint of pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest, grapefruit, light pine and a hint of orange zest with a crisp dry bitter lingering citrus finish.

Bomber from the Davis Co-Op (CA). Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is citrus zest, almost, with earthiness. Full bodied til the carb leaves. It’s very hoppy. Very zesty. Orange. So strong that burnt rubber comes to mind. Why? Don’t know. It’s not all that bitter compared to the hugest NW IPAs, but it does not lack flavor and bitterness. I cannot recall a fresh hop beer that is so striking as this. It just bowls me over. Brilliant effing ale.

Homer321 (5270) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Strong aroma of pils and urine. Literally like a skunky miller. Taste is better but very light malt. Almost adjunct. Not pleasant. Moderate hop flavor but not pleasant.

blutt59 (6646) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2013

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours clear golden color with one finger of white lacy head. Smells of grapefruit and piney hops with grassy notes as well. Not overly strong hop flavor. Earthy/grassy notes as well. Decent fresh hop beer. Nothing great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a surprisingly light gold with a white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is bold and interesting: hay, floral, grass, and grapefruit. Taste is good but weighted towards sour. Finish is quick with lingering bitters. It’s good. Wouldn’t necessarily seek it out but would drink again.

evanlarkin (315) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a golden straw color with a puffy white head. Smell is pretty bad actually, kind of like a litter box... but sweaty. I’m not a fan of that. Taste is lightly sweet, fairly malt forward with earthy, spicy hops rounding out the middle. Surprisingly light body, and a pleasantly crisp finish.
