3.53/5 rDev -6.1%
Had this at the Rackhouse Pub in Denver for the Colorado Rare Beer Tasting on 9/28.
Listed as "It's a Secret" on the beer list. Turned out to be a wet hop pale. Not as rare/interesting as I was hoping the secret to be, but a fun beer to sample nonetheless.
Pours a clear straw color.
Smells very pungent and herbal. Mild notes of grass and hemp along with some pine and earthy must.
Tastes of fresh oily hops. Very nice clean bitterness, but also bold and green.
Overall a nice beer, but as far as fresh hop brews go, this isn't as complex and I'd have hoped.

4.13/5 rDev +9.8%
On-tap at Churchkey in DC for an Avery Tap Takeover. $3 for a 4oz taster, 4.7% ABV
The beer pours a clear yellow with a huge white head. Lacing is above average and the retention is very good. The aroma almost is that of a pilsner, very grassy and malty. The taste reverts to that of a Pale Ale. Slight hop bitterness is balanced well with the maltiness, but the we hopping is all the discernable. Crisp and clean with a very dry finish. The body is where I get the hops the most. This was tasty, but I wanted more hops. Just tasted like your everyday APA.

From 12/1/11 notes. Had on tap at Churchkey at their Avery event.
a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange color with two inches of white head and light carbonation evident.
s - Smells of citrus hops, lightly sour bread, and some floral hops. Hops are there but not very strong.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, sweet fruits, floral hops, and earthy notes. Tastes a bit like a pilsener.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall not a bad beer at all, but a bit underwhelming. Isn't too hoppy but I guess that's expected given the ABV, and a little too earthy/floral for me. A pretty average APA, probably wouldn't seek it out again.
