Rare, fresh flavors is right, but just not the rare tastes I was looking for. The hops are very bitter, but doesnt leave a horrible after taste. Good up front, but not very desirable much after the initial taste. The aroma is not very good either.

[4127-20111113] 12floz bottle. Grainy peat malt aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a quick creamy white head. More bitter grainy resin malt in the flavour. Medium body. Lots of bitter, not a lot of flavour. (6/3/6/3/14) 3.2

Bottled. Poured fiery reddish-brown with a short-lived off-white head.. nice color, but the head/lacing looked messy in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and honey with juicy earth and pine hoppage around.. not exciting by any means, but it was aiight. The flavor found the same sweet sugars at the core, and added some medium-skinned fruits.. resiny bitterness surrounded, mostly citrus and pine.. residual sugars and nondescript bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a syrupy feel from the malts.. moderate, persistent bitterness throughout.. dried out and fell off the palate fast on the finish.. OK overall feel and flow.

First off, I love the color. A clear and sparkling light ruby. Not much in the way of head, but those hops flavors are there immediately. Grapefruit, pine, then grass and herbs at the end. With enough sweet malt to balance things out. At 55 IBU, there is some kick, but not so much that youll pucker. And thats the beauty of the wet hopped IPA. I think its very tasty. Ill need to find more wet hopped IPAs to compare it to, but so far, Im a fan.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of green hops, citrus, and some caramel malts. Flavor is maltier then I expected. Pretty strong of the caramel malts and a hint of the green hops. I was hoping for something better.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from Canals in Lawrenceville, NJ. Mildly hazy amber with a thin khaki head. Earthy, rustic hop aroma. Some citrus and pine but more toasty, caramel malt in the flavor. A bit thin. Crisp, dry finish.

Arayaga2 (2188) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Copper red with a cm of white head. Aroma is dull metallic hops, and taste is unexpectedly munich malty with the same metallic hops in more pleasing, and herbal quantities. $2/12oz

adnielsen (10594) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle @ home, courtesy of bnielsen13. Thanks again Brad! Clear, reddish copper appearance with a light brown head. Piney, rich herbal hoppy, somewhat toasty malty aroma. Toasty light caramel/pale malty, dull herbal hoppy flavor with some light grapefruit. Not sure if this would be better fresher but this is pretty bland.

Simple beer. Not bad for a session beer. The look is dark or amber. The smell is minimal if any the taste is malty with little hop.

2011-11-13. Mild flavour, sweet caramel focused malt with green leafy hops over a nice malty base. 6+ Green leafy hops aroma, muted malt. 6+ Average bodied palate. Decent, but needs a bit more going on to take it up a notch. Bottle from Cloverleaf, Royal Oak
