Poured into a tulip from a bomber.

A. Pours an amber color with a thick foamy head. As the head subsides there is nice lacing around the glass.

S. The nose is piney, floral and perfumy. Just a little dank. Not a ton of noticeable malt aroma here.

T. I'm getting mostly piney notes here followed by herbal with an everlasting grassy aftertaste. Just a bit of bitterness.

M. Medium to light body with a decent amount of carbonation that chases the swallow and lingers in the mouth with the grassyness.

O. Not the best fresh hop i've had although it was 5 weeks old. Still I don't think that's too long for an IPA. The appearance left me hopeful followed by nice aroma but the taste just didn't measure up. Not very balanced or delicious. But not bad by any means. Just not a rebuy with the other fresh hop options i've come across.

Beautiful looking hazy orange amber pour with a fluffy head, solid lacing on the drink down.

Initial aroma more malt than hops: butterscotch with grapefruit zest and herbs.

Taste balances out a touch more than the aroma, though it does start off malty on the first few sips until the bitterness sets in for some counterbalance.

Medium bodied with a good dose of carbonation,sticky,oily mouthfeel.

Not a bad fresh hop ale, but I think Rock Art's new Humble Harvester was head and shoulders in the style,which is decidedly more hop forward both in aroma and in flavor. Worth a try, this is a beautiful looking beer that delivers quite a bit of bitterness,but lacks some finesse that other fresh hop ales offer.

Not a huge fan of fresh hop ipas but this one is a standout. High marks for a standout of the style. As always port brings the fluffy head. Great hoppiness.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is bright pine, a little dank lemon.
The taste is a building dry bitterness beginning to end. Wonderful.
The texture is crisp.
Great taste.
