Poured from bomber into Duvel tulip. Two separate pours, one out of fridge and one after sitting out for about a half hour. No real difference between the two in my eyes and palette.
A: Dark orange with a small white halo of head. Decent amount of particles in the pour. Not offputting, but nothing extraordinary here either.
S: For a wet hop, where are the hops? Trying really hard to find it, but I'm smelling a lot of earth and malt. No citrus, no pine. Disappointing based on expectations.
T: Same as smell. This may be a solid pale ale, but I'm picking up really nothing from the hops. I really had hoped for more, but it's certainly not a bad beer by any means.
M: May be the most solid part of the beer. Very easy drinking and palatable. If this wasn't in bomber form, I could see putting a number of these back without thinking twice about it.
O: I need to stop going into new beers with high expectations. No other way of putting it...I'm let down with this one.

despite what the folks here say, this beer is wonderful. label must have changed this year, and maybe with it the recipe, because the critiques i read here do not seem at all valid to me. maybe i just got a really fresh one, i dont know, but i liked it a lot. pours clear golden color with a lacey and sticky white head with perfect retention. the smell is fresh hops, floral and oily, very little bitterness presents itelf. malt bill is light, pale and crystal malts, barely a crutch for the hops to lean on. flavor lines up with the nose, hoppy all the way through, but more it a light grassy to fruity way, rather than bitter at all. clean and bright in the finish, sessionable forever. this may be a little light for some american pale drinkers, but i found its fresh pep and light malt complex just right for a sunday afternoon of football. light light body, but big on flavor. strong but not overkill on the carbonation, and overall an impressive introduction to central waters brewing for me. wish i had more than one of these.
