Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: akorsak on 10-01-2006

Highly aromatic and sensual, this novel pale ale delivers a fresh hop flavor like no other brew. Its secret? Fresh hops piled into our boiling kettle just hours after their harvest. With many more of their essential oils intact, these ‘wet’ hops add glorious middle notes of juicy, fruit and tea-like bite to play off of its lightly toasted malt character deliciously.

Pours a light golden color with moderate head that disputes quickly.

Smells of very strong hops of every kind. Fruity hops, floral hops, piney hops, grassy hops, and with a hint of citrus. And did I mention it smells like hops?

Tastes much like it smells, but with some noticeable bready malts and maybe a hint of caramel. Also, do I taste a hint of tea?

Goes down rather smoothly, with medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall, this is an exceptional brew. It seems to have an identity crisis, as it's a pale ale, but has the hops of a double IPA.
