Intense hop aroma and flavor that almost tingled the nose and mouth. Not hop bitter but flavor and aroma hops kill! INtense citrus and light pine flavors dominate with a dry to semi sweet malt sweetness that is just right. On tap the beer has more to of the hop mouth zest but the but the bottle is almost equal in hop intesity. A bit a a metallic aftertaste that kept this one from scoring higher.
It's not normal harvest ale. Dark golden color - just passed fresh hop season but this was overly malty and old - definitely not expected from the makers of world class IIPAs and pales. Earth, toffee, some pine and citrus peel. Not a huge fan. tmoreau (4645) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2017
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a clear, golden hue, with a fluffy layer of soft white froth, and wavy spray as lacing. The nose started slightly dank & resinous, then expressive fruity pit variety & citrusy perfume, with a bit of tropical scent, and some mellowing malt. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste was similar notes, adding decent citrusy & rind-like bitterness. Clean and smooth to the bottom of the glass. A well made IPA, but nothing 3F extraordinary. Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Backlog entry. Good flavors, close to style, as expected without too many surprises. LinusStick (3514) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Nice wet hop beer. Aroma was fresh hops. Grassy and green with notes of grapefruit rind. Pour was a nice hazy medium gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was bitter, hoppy and delicious. One of the few wet hop beers that I’ve had that you can actually tell it’s wet hopped. Nice green and bitter hoppiness with all the grapefruit rind and grassiness from the aroma. A hint of light malt for good measure but thankfully, not enough to balance the beer out. Very hop forward and delicious. Medium carbonation and strong wet bitter finish. andrewje41 (4265) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2017
22 oz bottle poured. Fresh Hop month continues, and in quite the fine style. Much thanks to Tcon (and Jon) for the share! Bottle date smudged off, unfortunately. Adds some mystery. Didn't think I'd ever enjoy a fresh hop 3F anywhere but the source. Mostly clean golden orange pour. A piney first, orange and citrus second, flavor profile. Cool, resinous hops. Delicious. Refreshing IPA. Standout, lingering hop presence. Memorable IPA for sure.

Tap at brewery. Amber with medium white lacing. Apricot, powder sugar, resiny and tangerine aromas. Light sweetness with citrusey bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a fizzy feel. phranq (250) - - JUL 2, 2017
Harsh in the nise bit my bottle wasnt fresh. Still taste is well ballanced sweetness and hops. Finish is smooth. DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2017
Shared bottle at Craft. Poured hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was resiny hops, pine, grapefruit, pineapple. Rich, complex flavor, a lot dancing around on the tongue, great hop bitterness coupled with tropical citrus. Outstanding. AndyW68 (1602) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Light haze to the otange pour with lasting white head. Aroma is funky citrus. Taste is funky citrus and malt. Very pleasant.
