Very very drinkable. Full of citrusy and pine scents, a bit of melon. Thick lacing and a solid sized off white head. Taste is just splendid, follows the aroma to a tee.

Overall a fantastic brew that I would highly recommend.

As good as it gets for wet hops. Like drinking hop juice with a nice balance of citrusy pine goodness.

Had this many many times, but somehow no previous review.
12oz, bottled on 09.20.17
Deep golden hued body capped with a frothy ivory head. Citrusy nose with earthy piney hops and a bit of light caramel and pale malt. Big and bold grapefruit zest, plenty of pine resin, light caramel and grain. Medium sticky mouthfeel with pleasant carbonation. A perennial pick up for me. It's always a great wet hop harvest IPA.

I had a 12oz pour of this on 31OCT17 at The Nashua Garden. Cost was $4.00 during happy hour.

The small snifter was filled with a clear, medium-golden colored brew, which had minimal carbo. Head was sparse and scant, mostly some fine, white, rim-job foam, with light lacing. Had a citrusy nose with some sweetness, though mild. No probs for the feel; fairly smooth and medium bodied.

Taste had some sweetness and biscuit malts. There was a little melon and mild apricot. It was resiny, rindy and a touch piney, with grapefruit and pineapple rounding things out. Not spectacular, but still solid! Zum Wohl!!

Tastes strikingly similar to Toppling Goliath's Pseudo Sue.
