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.

Lovin' this one. Brilliant clarity, nice head, decent lace. Nose is a fine balance of lightly sweet and bready malt countered by a huge tropical fruit happiness. Taste a is rich malt body balanced by a depth of hops that must be experienced to be appreciated. Chewy breadiness, earthy hops with the tropical flavors from the nose. Feel is medium heavy for a pale ale, gently carbonated with a tingle on the tongue. Great take on a pale ale. The wet hop additions make this a real winner.

Had to pick this baby up, being a homebrewer not having the chance to use wet hops, yet, I wanted to give it a try.

Pours a clear, pale yellow with rocky white head and lasting lacing.

Smell of light grains and not the normal hop aroma you'd expect from a Pale. Much more 'green' and floral on the nose, I'm not familiar with Crystal, but the Centennial and Cascade are pretty easily discernible. Slightly sweet smelling. Citrus, almost clementine-y, and fresh peach. Some vegetal, celery like aromas come through.

Yellow summer beer. Typical light pale you'd expect this time of year, with some big Cascade flavors. Some malt sweetness, pleasant bitterness, and a fresher hop flavor than is typical from dried hops. Slightly spicy, a little citrus, mostly green and floral.

Coats the mouth well, residual sweetness but surprisingly dry. Well carb'd, if slightly under.

I don't know that I'd buy this again, but it's a must try if you've never experienced wet hops. Good-Great show, overall.
