American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.30% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is our first time brewing with fresh or “wet” Pacific Northwest hops (that were overnight delivered from Hopunion LLC), and since they’re only available once a year, this is an extremely limited, one-time-only batch that will not be widely distributed to bars or restaurants.

12/7/12 on tap at Croxley Ale's in Farmingdale, NY: pours clear blood red color with a foamy 2 finger off white head that faded very slowly, leaving great foamy lacing with rings as it went down.

Smells of juicy citrus hops, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, floral hops, caramel, biscuit, wet bread, piney hops, and fruity sweetness; hoppy, but not overly hoppy with nice malty balance.

Tastes like it smells, with juicy citrus hops that seem like wet hops, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, floral hops, caramel, biscuit, wet bread, toffee, piney hops, herbs, tea leaf, light spices like pepper and coriander, and fruity sweetness like cherry or plum; hoppy, but not overly hoppy with bready notes and herbal notes that allow the hops to steal the show yet still remain on the soft and mellow side.

Mouthfeel is light, creamy and smooth, with very mild carbonation, a medium body, and a semi dry finish with a combo of hops and herbs.

A good solid experiment from Bluepoint, this was very easy to drink and smooth. While this was a good start to the hop expansion, I still like No Apologies much better, but this is worth trying.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a yellowish orange color with a big 2" head that lasts a long time. Nce lace paints the glass.

Smell: wonderful hop aroma with a bunch of citrus tones.

Taste: caramel, orange, lemon zest, a bit of mango, and a hearty earthy and citrus bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp from start to finish with some dryness late. Long lasting aftertaste as the flavors linger in the mouth a while.

Overall: a very enjoyable and easy to drink beer. Very hop-centric but very well balanced. Worthy of a try.

Serving type: bottle
