Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

2014 edition (mosaic hops). Great balance of resiny, tropical hop notes with malt backbone. Best IPA I've had recently and definitely the best bottled wet hop ale I've tried this year.

On cask at Portland public house. It's the beer I remember with lower carbonation. Solid. Too many beers to try to write a meaningful review.
