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.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Lots o' recommendations for this from my local, so how could I say "No"? It pours a clear sunrise golden-amber topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light caramel-laden biscuit, mild pine resin, and a touch of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, the grapefruit a touch stronger, and some cilantro peeking through the haze. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sticky, drying finish. Overall, a nice enough IPA, especially for a fresh hop deal, but nothing all that special, really.
