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.

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.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Hazy gold with a thin white head, and plenty of visible carbonation.

S: Grassy and juicy melon hops, with less tropical fruit aroma, and a light cracker malt.

T: Big flavors of melon, mango and pineapple tropical fruits, some citrus, and a lighter spicy, touch of resin and dank hops over a very lightly toasted cracker malt. Lightly bitter in the hang.

M: Light body, almost no alcohol presence, and the carbonation towards the low side - though certainly not flat.

O: Very tasty, and quite the pleasant surprise. It's quite fruity, and not as grassy as most fresh hop beers. Really quite enjoyable. Recommended.

Pours a clear honey color with a dense white head that left some webby lacing.

The aroma is of a perfumey hop. Floral notes with some citrus and grass. Enjoyable aroma but not very strong.

Nice fresh hop flavor. Floral and buddy with light fresh grass notes. Slight pepper. Slightly bready malt which is clean and let's the hops shine. Good bright hop flavor.

The feel is moderate with semi soft carbonation. Slightly bitter on the palate. Nice balance and drinks well.

A good wet hop pale ale. Nice hop flavor and drinks quite well. I hope Blue Point keeps making this.

Pours a clear amber with a thick white head. Good retention and good lacing. Aromas of citrus, floral hops, with faint spice notes. Taste follows nose - lots of citrus, faint floral, some pine notes, faint catty notes. Not a hop bomb, but nicely bitter. It's very nicely balanced by a solid malt bill. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking, smooth, and well crafted pale.
