this stuff is all over town right now, and its not my favorite of the wet hop beers by any means, but it does have some unique features. for one, its a little maltier than a lot of them, more balance from the grain, more body, and also more for the hops to cling to, i think this feels fuller, drinks a little slower, and is a bit more old school than what seems to be the standard this year. its a shade or two darker than brass, but has a nice shine, all centennial this year from what i gather, but its not obvious in the aroma or the flavor to me, it seems more like a cascade, as i get quite a bit of that green spiciness to it, and less of the wet lumber and pine i am used to from centennial, although elements of both are certainly present. i also get a bit more fruitiness than i am used to from centennial alone, like grapefruit zest and even lime. its more bitter than a lot of these too which i like, and the texture is oily and feels like a fresh hop beer, but the flavor doesnt jump out at me as obviously we hops, like the dose is low or the timing isnt quite right to fully flatter that newness and botanical element. i like the beer overall though, its balance yet robust, and has a nice smoothness and linger to it, i dont mind the bit of sweetness from the malt through it at all. i havent had a ton of beer from these guys yet, but they seem solid so far...

Bought a 22oz bomber at NS in Portland.
2017 version is Cascade, Simcoe, Warrior.

Pours brassy & clear. Nice creamy head. Layered lacing.
Taste is earthy, smokey, oily to slightly syrupy.
Warrior is really an oddball hop, and an odd fresh hop choice, IMO.

Bottle from Boise Co-op. Big fruity aroma, citrus , some pine. Electric orange golden body. Small bubbly head. Oranges, some floral notes in the taste. Nice oily mouth feel. A bit late in the fresh hop season, but this still sparkles.
