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

3.8
wlajwl (7121) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Aroma is strong grassy hops, pine and a strong hint of bitterness. The flavor is citrus, strong grassy hops, juice notes, fruit, grapefruit, malts in the background and a very tangy/mildly dry finish.

3.6
ACHops (1665) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2013
22 oz bomber poured into a shaker pint. Pours dark yellow with thick fluffy white head. Aroma is fresh citrusy hops with a decided buttery flavor. Taste is light pale malt with big earthy fresh hops on the finish. Grassy, citrus, earthy notes. The malt bill seems a bit lacking for a 7.4% IPA. Fresh hops are nice and light, without the heavy bitterness of Inversion. Almost more of a fresh hopped pale.

3.9
IrishBoy (4237) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is citrus with a little grapefruit and a hint of bubblegum in the far background. Lightly hazy yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is bitter with a bit of a malt background.

3.7
EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a clear light yellow color with a greenish tint and a large white head, and the aroma is a nice blend of floral and citrus hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the palate combines a sticky texture, long hoppy finish, average carbonation, and a medium body.

3.3
joet (2672) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Beautiful golden, lightly green hued with a nice pillow of fine white foam. It’s a looker. A little too much sugar and sweetness remaining. Melons, honey, citrus sweet and light caramels are the most prominent element of the profile. A bit of cattiness, then pine resins, light diesel, berry. Lots of hop volatiles which is nice. Low bitterness which is nice but too much sweetness, which affects both mouthfeel and detracts from the hop flavors.

3.7
ABUSEDGOAT (2871) - California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Clear amber colored, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is mowed grass, grapefruit, pine, light caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, very drinkable and tasty.

3.6
GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is nice Amarillo hops. Nice tasty hop flavor balanced by the malt. Hops are present but not over powering. They leave a pleasant aftertaste. Great tasting.

3.9

On draft at 83 degrees. Great sweet hop taste with a tweak of bitterness. A very enjoyable and different IPA.

3.9
beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours pale gold color with small head. Oily hop nose of grass and citrus. Almost like noble hops. Nice balance of malts with the flavors and bitterness. Floral and some orange taste. A little burn in the finish. Very tasty!

3.2
BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle and served in my GI IPA Tulip: Very pale straw hue that reminds you of Bud Light and not a craft beer but does have nice head retention and lace. The aroma and palate is juicy, moderately dank and oniony, biscuity and grainy malts with a bit of mineral and metallic esters. The mouth feel is sprite and but sort of watery and dull. If this was a "session" IPA of 4.5% or lower I could easily forgive the lack of depth but alas it is not and therefore despite the freshness it is underwhelming.
