Pours out a mostly orangeish and gold color, nice white laundry soapish white head. Aroma was pretty muted, came off extremely as an English ipa. Lacked dry hop character.
What exactly is fresh hop about this?
Taste, man, this really does not seem like a fresh hop ipa. More like an esb or english ipa at best, and even that is kind of pushing it. Bready, floral malt aspect, hops are bitter, grapefruit at times, but very mellow. Truly one of the "balanced" ipas, or if anything, leaning away from balance to the light malt character sweetness. There are no off flavors, but it seems completely mislabeled style wise. Alcohol remains hidden, kind of surprised that its about 7 and a half.
I guess if you're looking for the lightest, mildest fresh hop ale made, this is your beer. I'm kinda meh on it.
