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.

Poured into DFH IPA glass
Could not find a date on the bottle

L-Golden amber 1/2 inch white head mild to thick lacing that runs down the side of glass

S-Floral hops with some sweet tropical fruits (mango, papaya, pineapple) spicy herbal notes (sage, thyme) sweet bready malts

T-first impression is the spicy herbal hops that give way to the sweetness of the malts.......lingering taste of sweet tropical fruits and some orange or lemon peel that provides some bitterness in the finish.........this is a pale ale that meets a spicy, peppery saison........plenty of hops, malts, but has that spicy dry peppery notes of a saison.......great combination citrus, fruity hops, sweet bready malts, and dry herbal tea leaf notes

F-Medium body, mild carbonation with a crisp dry feel

O-Provides a variety of flavors in each sip as waves of hops, malts, and spices push through.........well done
