Is there a difference between this and wet hop beers, which already has a tag? https://www.ratebeer.com/tag/wet-hop/

Washington state lifts w.r.t. wet hop beer quality.

This search tag only has its right to exist if there is a description explaining to the already existing search tag "wet hop". Usually, both terms are used interchangeably even if wet hops are always undried and can therefore a subtype of fresh hops which can be dried (but then have to be used within a very short time after harvesting).

Either way, it would also be helpful if people wouldn't just add the suggested search tags to a beer (as in the case of Fuller's Vintage Ale 2000 and the Achel Drie Wijzen which I just deleted from the list) but actually think of it before doing it. "Fresh hop bitterness" doesn't mean it's been made with fresh hops in the aforementioned meaning.

This. I had to delete another one that just said something about "fresh hop aroma"...not the same thing.

I hate mcberko. He's able to drink so many good Imperial / Double IPA's and I'm stuck with the usually crappy European ones. Lucky bastard! ;)
