Beer review from BA Mag Dec 2007.

Everyone has been talking about the hop shortage and how it will affect the beer industry on a global scale. Will fresh hop beers be an endangered style in 2008? Left Hand's Warrior IPA uses fresh hops from Longmont, CO and fresh Warrior hops from Yakima, WA.

Wow, what an amazing froth after a hard pour. Dense and rocky with an excellent retention as the lacing leaves a trail down the glass. Tarnished brassy color with a perfect clarity. Thick and slightly pungent spicy and citric tone in the nose from the hops with a quick splash of toasted malt in the aroma. Medium-bodied with a slick and smooth mouthfeel. The hop flavor is broad and complex with a deep yet soft herbal flavor, then a little citric with a spicy bitterness that does not reach too high. Oily hops all over. A bit of malt pops out here and there with toasted grain and a hint of caramel sweetness. The finish is almost all hops--a quick flash of grape nut grain flavor.

The hops are so deeply embedded in this beer that you can barely tell if it ends up sweet or dry. It simply ends hoppy with such a complex hop flavor that does not go too bitter. We really hope the hop shortages will not affect beers like this, an American style of brewing that is not worth sacrificing when it is this good.
