From 750 mL bottle to nonic pint glass

A: Copper-tan in color, opaque, a gentle pour forms a small sudsy head that never fully recedes.

S: Floral, sweet bouquet. Wet-hopping yields a dank, grassy aspect and the malt-backbone seems large.

T: Strangely malt-forward, sweet, but grainy and grassy. Hops are definitely floral, with subtle citrus notes amongst the earthy profile. Strong notes of tea pop up toward the finish, and the 7.5% alcohol isn't masked. Flavors are kind of a mess, not harmonizing at all. The hops are strictly bitter at the long finish.

M: Medium-heavy bodied, oily and well carbonated.

Flavor profile is disjointed, and I'm not a big fan of IPA's whose distinctive note is green tea. So far I'm liking their sours, but not jumping up and down for their other styles.

A - Like the rest of the fresh hop series from Almanac, this is a great looking beer. Bright gold body. Nice white head with nice lace and retention.

S - Musky rose water, green leaves, melon, honey, and biscuitty malt.

T - Bright green plant bitters, honeydew melon, lemons, and citrus pith.

M - Medium-light frame with bright carbonation.

O - Maybe the most sessionable brew of the Alamanac fresh hop series.

Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal. From notes. Reviewed 24 September 2013.

A: Pale gold. Clear. Creamy head. Heavy lace.

S: Super faint. No smell.

T/M: Delicious! Pine, bitter-clean hops, very full, effervescent mouthfeel. Very aggressive American hops with a very bitter aftertaste that lasts forever.

O: Great IPA. Very classic.
