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.

22oz bomber with a date

look is yellow with some darker orange highlights, TONS OF SEDIMENT. smell is skunky and grassy but muted. there's also an odd musky scent that is off-putting. taste is heavy citrus/flowers/grass with a sweet malty but peppery finish.

good stuff

A: Pours a translucent golden with a white ring of head.

S: Pineapple, apple and orange in the nose. Interesting.

T: Apple, orange, pine. A bit odd, but good.

M: Medium bodied, feels like a smooth IPA.

O: This is probably the worst of the Bond Street series of ales, but it's still pretty good. I'd recommend it to IPA lovers.
