Boulder Freshtracks Wet Hopped Ale

Pours a clear orange color, soapy head and a solid amount of lace. Light aroma of caramel and floral hop notes. In the taste, mild orangey citrus, small bitterness, clean toffee-like maltyness and an even balance. Hops could stand to be more intense or at least noticeable. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, and fairly smooth with delicate carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent ale, but kind of bland.

I had this on draft yesterday at the Boulder Beer Tap House inside Denver International Airport.

Appearance: Orange color. The beer poured a one finger head with some very nice lacing. Clarity is good with lots of tiny bubbles.

Smell: very light citrus and piney notes. All followed by sweet and bready malts.

Taste: Same as above with some spiciness and biscuit too. Very subtle flavors and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: smooth, a little chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: this was a decent wet hopped ale. Looking for more out of the hops, but the wet hops were still nice.

On tap at Old Chicago, I'm always interested in wet hopped beers and had never heard of this so it was an easy choice. Amber color, decent head. Looks like single track. Aroma is slightly hoppy, not bad flavor was nice, wet hop oils, a touch of butter caramel. I liked this and I'd order this again if I saw it.

on tap at hawthornes in philly

Pours a slightly hazed amber color with some lighter golden hues. Tuft of white head rests on top throughout most of the pour, leaving patches and rings of lacing on the glass.

Soft herbal hop bitterness in the nose with a touch of pine. Hint of orange peel with a nice maltiness with bread crust. Faint caramel sweetness too.

Balanced bitterness up front with pine and a light touch of citrus. Bready and caramel malt backbone with some residual sweetness. Few hints of orange peel and fruit sweetness as well. Decent balance between the hop and malt flavors. Finishes a little dry and bitter, but still pretty crisp.

Medium body, decent carbonation, crisp and pretty refreshing. I like the fresh hop take on the amber ale, the malt and hop balance was pretty decent. I'd probably drink this again if I ran into it somewhere.

Burnished copper clad in a light haze. Fluffy white head leaves moderate lace.

Aroma of earthy and citrus fresh hops upfront with light caramel and toasted bread.

Flavor much like Singletrack with a kicked up hop presence. Smooth toasted malt, bread, and biscuit malt flavors with earthy, citrus and light herbal hops.

Lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation and a slight astringency from the fresh hops. Solid session beer.
