Reviewing the 2014 version.
Pours a lovely, pale, clear copper with a pure white head that quickly fades to some spotty lacing.
The aroma is loaded with citrus, pine, pineapple, a little dankness and a hint of malty sweetness in the background.
The taste is loaded with fresh hop flavor. Still, it's not overpowering. Piney and dank hop flavor with a hint of citrus in the taste and plenty of malty sweetness to back it up.
Mouthfeel is medium and well carbonated.
Overall, a tasty brew.

15/22S/167/14/2222 date code, tasted on November 5, 2014. Your guess is as good as mine as to how old this beer was. My tasting leads me to think this one may have had some age on it.

Dark amber color, moderate carbonation, small off-white head that fades quickly, but has good lacing. Aroma is citrus hops with bready malt.

Initial taste almost a British malt followed by hops piney bitterness, with the bitterness lingering into the aftertaste. The mouth feel is thicker than expected for the style, with the maltiness dominating the initial taste.

Due to the initial maltiness, which does hold up throughout, this beer is better balanced that a typical American IPA, but it is still dominated by the hops in the end. The hops taste is more resin than citrus, despite the aroma.

I really have no idea how this “fresh hops” IPA compares with what is expected from a “fresh hops” ale. Whatever the fresh hops are supposed to bring, this seems more like a standard IPA, except that the British-style malts are more present that with a west coast style IPA. In other words, I got nothing but a normal IPA with better malt balance.

I really like the almost British bitter-style malt presence. Even so, given the price demanded for this six pack, it will be difficult to justify buying more.

This is a good beer. It poured a copper clear with thick white head that is leaving a lace. The has fresh hop that is leaning toward bitter. The taste carries fresh hop and alcohol with a bread malt base. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this beer is sessionable and worth a try.
