Notes/Commercial Description:
Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down Virgil Gamache Farms' famed Amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

3.6/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours crystal clear and golden with a frothy pure white head. Nose is orange, grassy, slightly sweet and some other light citrus, almost like lime. The taste is pretty mellow. There is light citrus, some pine, mellow caramel and a sweetness like honey. This is a great fresh hop ale but its more like a pale ale to me than an IPA. Damn good though, especially for the $5.99 price tag. Everything was just too mellow and to "meh" for what I've come to expect from a fresh hop ale.
