Appearance - 4/5
A very clear copper-red-orange. At least one finger of head, which lasts for a while. Can see a lot of carbonation rising up through the beer. Some small particles floating around the beer.

Smell - 3.7/5
Pine-citrus hops, a little bit of smooth caramel malts.

Taste - 4/5
Mellow pine-citrus hops, with a bit of sweet malts along with a tiny bit of alcohol taste. When I say 'mellow' I think I mean smooth and slightly toned-down, rather than bitter and intense. I don't know a lot about what wet-hopping is, but if this is the result, I like it. The hops do feel more smooth and fresh.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
This beer is very smooth and creamy, something that's rather unique for a Pale Ale from my experience. The carbonation is light. The beer is medium to full bodied. Overall an excellent feel.

Overall - 4/5
This was a very refreshing beer. The hops were no overpowering, but rather were much more mellow, and combined with the smoothness/creaminess of the beer and its full-body, this was a great PA. For someone who doesn't really love hops, but still enjoys them from time to time, or when done in the right way, this beer is great. The hops don't overpower, but the taste is still present, and there is little bitterness. This is a nice brew.

Pours a hazy golden amber. Small frothy head that disciples quickly. Nice carbonation.
Sweet fruit, malts, hops, pepper aroma.
Fresh hop, grapes, pepper,grant Smith apple taste. Carmel back.
Slick, sweet and semi dry mouth feel. There's a nice bitterness in the back.
Sorry, I'm not site what a wet hop is supposed to taste like, wish I did, but this isn't a bad Farmhouse Ale.

an all wet hopped pale, i expected a lot more from this, although being lat january now, the wet hop beers still around have all likely faded a bit, if not quite a bit. bright sunny colored beer with a frothing white head that dies pretty fast. the nose is vegetal hops, fresh enough, but not all that distinct, and certainly lacking that fruity sappy oil complexion i look for from the wet ones. the flavor too, really subtle on the hop front, taste for sure, its good beer, but the hops are not front and center and immediately identifiable as of the wet variety, which was a major let down in this one. all hops from michigan apparently too, i would have liked to taste more of them as i did not know it was much of a hop region. i liked the beer as a pale ale, light and refreshing with a good bitter back end, but as a wet hop beer it really under performed for me. still, glad new holland is in our market now, they make some really solid beers.
