Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. At harvest, we rush Goschie Farms’ Cascade hops fresh from vine to kettle. Not any Cascades, mind you, but an heirloom strain, from a single field, restored from the original rhizome. Hope you’re as hopped up as we are.

This is pretty good on the initial taste but settles on the palate in an annoying way. It's like the cascades bitter too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mellow IPA in color and feel, but the flavor and aroma are just so hopaliciosly pleasant. Although 7.4%, it does give the impression of being more pale ale than IPA. Not aggressive in any way, but the late additions of fresh hops make it fruity and grassy without being as bitter as is the norm. Seriously sessionable and very good. The one thing that pissed us off is that we just got this beer in Reno yesterday...half way from the bottling date to the expiration date...and it’s a bleeping fresh hop beer. Would have been great 6 weeks ago."

Not a bad beer. Had this one with a friend at Reds Ale House! A very nice IPA, with a smooth Drinkable finish.

Best by 27DEC12 Pours golden on pilsner straw with a solid sheet of fine whites. Smells fruity with some resin, grass and green grape. Flavor is grainy and nearly like a pilsner with a dry stony bitterness and only a bit of resin character. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slick finish. This would be a great beer if marketed as a bohemian pilsner, but IPA, not a chance. Serving type: bottle 10-17-2012

Draft. Golden pour with white head. Aroma is light crisp hop and into of malt. Flavor is comparable to prima pils or sunshine pils, nice light but not overbearing.

DocLock (10573) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid canary gold with 2-finger white head. Nose is fresh wet hops, pale malt, citrus. Tastes resiny hoppy, with a lot of pineapple and grapefruit flavor, an overall dryness, and some finishing white peppery spice notes. Very good.

Tap. Pours clear gold with a small white head. I found something in the aroma strange. Perhaps a bit grassy ? Finishes hoppy and malty.

stantheman (1015) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A very pale, crisp and refreshing IPA. Not particularly seasonal for late October, but a damn nice easy-drinking IPA anyhow. 3.5

Tap. Clear gold. Little aroma with maybe a little sweetness. Great lacing. Some initial hoppiness, then a bit of a clean malty sweetness. Very crisp. Well done.
