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.

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.

Roommate brought these home so not sure of cost or where he got them, but so far everything we've tried from Deschutes has been good, so hoping for another godd one here. 22oz brown bottle with a freshness date of 12/18/13, so it needs to e drunk now.

The beer poured a pale yellow color which tuned clear bright yellow when held to the light. The 1½-finger white hrad lasted a few minutes and left some nice lacing.

This smells citrusy - like oranges and lemons.

Lots of hop flavor, but not a lot of hop bitterness. Orange, lemon, and tangerine flavors with a touch of pine underneath. The malt is bready and miuldly sweet and blends well with all the hop flavors.

Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Carbonation is higher than normal but works well with this.

I liked it. Another winner from Deschutes.
