Viridis Lupulus is an outsider in the land of smooth, citrus-forward West Coast single IPAs that are becoming increasingly popular. This is a bitter, resinous pine and herb monster full and full - a classic East Coast style IPA amped up to crazy bitter degrees, and with the trademark balancing caramel malts completely absent. One for the true hop-head, the extremely dry mouthfeel akin to chewing on a hop pellet will turn off all but the most devoted. I really enjoyed it, something different in the crowded IPA arena.

750ml bottle corked and caged. Opens with a vigorous pop. Pours a dirty copper color, certainly an unfiltered brew. Cloudy, with an equally soft pillowy foam that retains quite well and laces the glass expertly. In the past, clarity in a brew was a sign of its quality; now the exact opposite is true. Dank hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, leaves, lemon, peppercon, dried papaya. Very bright and semi tropical aroma with some plant like elements. In the taste, very bitter and earthy, with some intense unripe citrus rind flavors. Resinous hops are definitely in 3D here, seriously another dimension of hops. Bitter as all hell, perhaps even beyond; I must have been a bad, bad boy. This beer is a bad boy. Bad meaning delicious and worthy; a rare kind of bad. Leafy, oily hop resins coat the palate. Medium bodied, with a prickly mouthfeel and delicate smoothness. Carbonation is at a soft medium. Overall, this is a fantastic example of American IPA. Delicious, smooth, hoppy, strong, brilliant in every sense of the word. Have yourself a pat on the back Weyerbacher team, this is a resounding success.

750 ml bottle of hops released this year let's see how it held up, looks great deep copper amber with a big head flowing forth light beige thicket of head forms nicely. Aroma has pine, citric notes with orange zest it's a great grassy floral quality of big hop layers in the nose, I'm liking it!!! Flavor is bitter with citrus zest and crushed aspirin, goes down exquisitely nice big beer with big hops and ample malts to balance out the show. Mouthfeel is big oily and accentuates all hop flavors fully I'm in love with this beer, it's a big hoppy badass beer that we need more of, the unfiltered aspect just adds to hop chunks floating in your glass who doesn't love that? Crushing waves of bitterness I'm not embarrassed to enjoy this onslaught of hops it's seems so fresh because of the big unfiltered raw hops in a 7.5% IPA I'm looking for more of this stuff and I know where to find it at retail get ready for a resinous hop mouthfeel with ample natural smooth carbonation all day. Great overall experience there's nothing like this on the market go and try some if you catch it soon, I hope they re release this stuff this coming summer!!!

22 oz into 2 pint glasses, shared with friend. Great complement to our meeting.

Appearance: pours a hazed, light apricot, golden color with a large 2" head that very slowly falls to a thick surface foam. Thick lace all the way down. Great looking, sturdy brew.

Smell: Aggressive hops, but balanced. Nice spice, grass, citrus, and floral tones with a wave of hop bitterness. Very pleasant, very aromatic.

Taste: Many sensations, great beer! Waves of orange, grapefruit, pine, flowers flow on top of a sturdy malt base and finishes long and clean with hop bite. Aggressive, big hops beer akin to Ruination.

Mouthfeel: medium to sturdy bodied beer. Crisp to start, good tingle, dry late.

Overall: Left me happy, and happy to have more. A slow drinker, a meditation beer, a conversation beer. Perfect for a meeting!
