COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed only once a year with fresh hops hand-picked in Longmont, CO and Warrior hops straight off the vine from Yakima, WA.
Warrior is brewed using a unique style called Wet Hopping, which requires only hops that are no more than a day from the vine. Wet Hopping imparts only a mild aroma, but an exceptionally fresh unfiltered hop flavor.

snowtiger (107) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Clear deep golden/amber with big lacey white head. Lots of citrisy hop aroma and not much else. Starts out bitter and grassy/piney/tangerine and finishes the same way. Just enough malt to balance. Has a lingering bitter finish. I get more tangerine there as well. Some alcohol too. I like this.

balloonbuffoon (148) - - APR 3, 2017
22floz bottle BBD 01.21.2017 (paid $4 because its a little old). Consumed 04.03.2017. A copper colored IPA with a large head that falls to create a plateau. Orange zest and lavender combine to create a soap-like aroma. Body is full, and leathery taste has a harsh bitterness. Brewed to be drunk fresh, so it could be marginally better. I prefer a greater hop to malt balance, this beer lacked malt character.

DocJitsu (1928) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2016
Pours a dark golden with an ample eggshell colored head. Grassy and very spicy nose. Spicy, rye, cinnamon, clove, grass, and berry(?) flavors. Weird IPA. Not in a good way. I was waiting for a while on trying this one and Im disappointed.

On tap. Pours a dark copper color with a nice head and good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, bit of pine and grain. taste of grapefruit bit of malt sweetness and grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp clean with a nice subtle hop feel. Enjoyable beer.

OminouSC2 (595) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Hazy, orange color, medium white head. Sweet fruit aromas, grapefruit and oranges. Pine and citrus hops. Taste is very mellow. Sweet flavors that are poorly balanced by the hops. Slight hop flavor of pine and grass. Short, light bitter finish. Maybe you should drink it fresh too.

tillmac62 (714) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2016
BBD 1/13/16. Clear amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of orange and light pine over biscuit coupled with a bit of earthy spice. Light body with a texture similar to that of water but coupled with an outstanding oily slickness. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is very good. This is a hop flavor focused beer with moderate bitterness that is balanced with toasty biscuit and caramel. Like the nose, orange dominates with pine and spicy elements in the background. Along with moderate bitterness in the middle, caramel makes a strong appearance. The finish is semi-dry and a hint of alcohol astringency arrives over a lingering slightly sweet rind/pine bitterness.

StefanSD (2439) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber. Pours copper with a big fluffy off-white head that has good retention. Aroma of wet pine needles and a trace of fresh grapefruit. The taste, likewise, is more piney that citrusy and set in a light caramel malt base that is slightly sweet. The palate is medium, finishes sweet. Overall: Very easy drinking IPA, good stuff.

22oz bottle pour from home with a best by date of 1/13/16 (one week from review). Pours a light reddish color with nice fluffy head. A solid beer...not bad...but not mind blowing either.

Draught @ Albion. Clear dark orange with small frothy off-white head, very faint malt aroma, low carbonation, bitter lemon peel taste, long bitter finish. Very much citrus dominated.

650ml fresh hop. Huge fresh hop smell, gorgeous red amber pour. Really amazingly beautiful beer. Tastes well balanced, rich hop flavor builds and rolls on your tongue. Really exceptional.
