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.

This is a great fresh-hop beer. Have had this on tap at Victory twice in the past month and the second time around was better than the first. This beer has a wonderful, hoppy aroma and goes down really smooth. Both times I have had this on-tap, in a 22oz Willi Becher glass.

The previous reviewer nailed this beer perfectly. Pungent cut grass, pine, and light citrus, burst forward in the nose, and follow down the hatch. This is the only beer I've had in recent memory that is in the same league as Elevated IPA, one of the best hop experiences you can have...

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. ENJOY BY: 10 MAR 2015.

Appearance: Bright clear light amber to reddish orange body with a thinner white head. Lots of carbonation.

Smell: Tremendous aroma of floral hops, sweet malt backbone plays the lightest complimentary role.

Taste: One of the juiciest ales I have had the pleasure of tasting. Dank floral goodness coats the tongue, top to bottom back to front. A hint of spiciness in the aftertaste. A touch of caramel malt sweetness for just the slightest balance. The wet Citra hops really shine here, reminding me why they are one of my favorite varieties.

Mouthfeel: Astringent is the only word I can put here.

Overall: I had this on tap at the Roasthouse Pub in Urbana (near Frederick) after a long day of hiking (which included my first stint on the Appalachian Trail!) I fell in love with this on tap, but was afraid the bottle would let me down...it did not! My father, who tried a sip and is not fond of hoppy beers, asked if there were peaches in this. I told him that flavor just came from using juicy wet hops in the right combination. Almost a perfect 5 for me!
