I took your year-round favorite, Big Hop IPA and did a little something special to it to celebrate the September hop harvest. There’s a small window where I can get fresh-picked, undried, green, hops to toss into the kettle, and I jumped on it. These “wet hops” provide a truly unique flavor and aroma, almost like the smell of freshly cut grass – if your lawn was completely planted with American hops! Available starting in October and lasting until it’s all gone.

Grassy / hay on the nose with pale malt in the background. Hazy almost orange pour with thin white foam. The hop / malt balance is very good. The wet hops grassy aspect makes it sweeter than it might be. Light to medium body with medium fizz. Slightly funky mouth feel. Pittsburgh Real Ale Festival 2015.

Nice hop flavor with dank woody notes to finish. Malt balance is nice. Good autumn flair.

Growler. Pour is a a nice orange with a decent head and aromas that are light and fruity but understated. Flavor is fairly solid but not overly assertive. A bit of resin and lightly citrusy.

Draft at Bella Notte in Pittsburgh. Fresh and revreshing withjust the right amkunt of hops. As good as the original with just a litle something extra.

Art (3219) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pale yellowy orange color. Aroma of hops but very subdued. Not nearly as hoppy as I was hoping.

Draft at mad mex north hills. Pours orange with a big white head. Not much on the nose. Slight hop note on the nose. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. I was pretty bored by this one.

FH IPA Fest 2012, Malt bomb, no real hops here, just malty bread flavors, perhaps its old or something but why bring this to a beer fest?

LilBeerDoctor (4032) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Growler. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, sharp citrus, grassy hops, a touch of pine, and spicy hops. Flavor of malt up front with spicy and garlicky hops in the finish as well as a touch of citrus and some perfumy hops. Great hoppy harvest ale! A nice blend of malt and spicy hops and it’s great fresh out of the tap! 8/4/8/4/14 [3.8/5]
