2014 Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop IPA. Packaged 9/24/14
Pours beautiful mahogany w/off white head. Head lingers and laces nicely.
Earthy, faintly vegetal nose, hints of citrus and crystal malts.
Medium to full bodied.
Nice round citrus, spice hops up front, finishes with a beautiful balanced malt finish.
Overall, not as hoppy as previous vintages, however wet hop beers tend to be a little subtle compared to normal 100ibu hop bombs. A beautiful example of the Wet Hop IPA. I would buy it again.

Golden on pour, with a huge head that dissipates slowly. Hoppy, well balanced with malt and fruit aromas. Bitterness at start, then sweet, then finishes bitter. Fairly dry palate, but with a long finish.
