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.

I don't get it. others rate this beer pretty high. initial aroma is savory but off putting - almost like hamburger. i keep smelling it to see if i'm missing something but it's not like other wet hopped beers that i like. i really don't like the aroma. the flavor is not as off putting as the aroma but isn't great. again, i don't get the high marks. overall, i think it's an odd beer. not so good.

Adendum: talked it over with one of belmont MA finest beer geeks at CBCB. He said its like onions. If i were to cook with it, it might be fantastic. At the price point however, its not likely to happen.

Nose reminds of durian (the weaponizable fruit).
Love it, hate it, or love to hate it.
Unique smell average+ taste. Moderate to low head. Nice warm color. Wouldn't drink it on it's own, but works to wash down a spicy dish. Something like buffalo chicken works good.

3.7/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Poured with a standard pint from a 64oz growler filled at Beery City in Deer Park, NY. Colour is a clear amber brown. Half-inch head is puffy and fades to a thin film leaving a nice lacing. No visible carbonation.

Smell: A strong balance of citric-bitter hops and sweet, bready malts.

Taste: The hops are crisp and brilliant. The malts are sweet and mild. The aftertaste is clean, bitter, and reminiscent.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with a modest carbonated bite. Finishes a little dry.

Overall: This tastes just like a west coast A/IPA, mission accomplished! It is nothing spectacular but it isn't a bad beer either. Solid, tasty, and enjoyable.
