Bottle. Hazy light gold pour with a white head. Carmel, hops are a little stale - I think this bottle has a little age on it, it seems. MNAle (226) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Dark red-amber color, white 1.5 inch head. Recedes fairly quickly, leaving thick lacing that slips down the glass. Moderately carbonated. Inviting citrusy aroma. Medium mouth feel. Citrus in the initial flavor, with a good malt balance. Moderate bitterness in the middle and in the aftertaste. Aftertaste does not linger. A pleasant enough beer, easy drinking, But it does not have the extra aroma or all the fresh-hop flavor you would expect. Enjoyable and recommended, but as a fresh hop it is ordinary.

Approximately 2 oz. pour at the 2015 Harvest Beer Festival, consumed on 10-17-15. Pours a dark gold with beige head. Good aroma. Fresh, vegetal smell: Garden and celery scents. Subtle but good flavor is consistent with but not as impressive as the aroma. Soft and frothy in the palate. Pretty good beer overall, better than I expected. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Clear golden-Amber color with thick foamy head. Fragrant piney and grassy hop aroma. Taste- pine resin dominates the flavor profile balanced with caramel malt. Oily mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone portableparty (2382) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear golden Amber with a large white pillow head that settles to a film and tons of lacing. Aroma is fairly bright with citrus pine soft mellow malt. Taste is bitter pine resin soft citrus pine and malty finish. Palate is thin oily and slightly dry with a little spice that lingers.

Piney aroma with citrus undertones. Body is medium. good clarity with clean finish. Overall, pretty good fresh hop. Aroma is not very strong, but the flavor is good. mnmike (1091) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2013
On tap at the Town Hall Lanes fresh hop event. Foto is the base here and the fresh hops are dank and resiny. Maltser85 (363) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with a two finger slightly off white head. Aroma is a nice pine with a bit of citrus cutting through. Definitely a grapefruit citrus. Right in there though is a nice sweet malty smell to it. Balanced aroma. Medium carbonation, tremendous mouthfeel on this beer. Nice citrus in the front, rolls through the caramel flavors and finishes with a slightly dry pine. Nice stickiness on the lips. Not tremendous lacing, but good. Mouthfeel is the real gold star on this beer. Excellent Wet Hop Ale for the price. 6pk $9.99 TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle from Us Wine. Packaged in Foto bottles but the box says "FRESH" and the caps are green. Pour is a nice copper with tons of khaki, creamy head. Aroma is resiny hops, citrus hops. Flavor matches aroma, solid mouthfeel. Creamy. Better than Foto.
