Bomber style while watching Iowa St. dismantle Notre Dame in March Madness 2013.

The appearance intrigues. Copper colouration with a majestically thick, lacy head. I see this beer. I want this beer. Furthermore, not only do carbon bubbles ascend, but some sorts of fragments descend. Hops? Unsure. The mouthfeel also intrigues. Initial carbonation gives way quickly to smooth silkiness, even when gulped rather than sipped. The nose is much as the taste: bright, nutty malt matched with subtle hop over/unders. Complexity abounds. No. Hemis. Wet Hop demands digestion of both the mind and stomach. All-important aftertaste leaves one satisfied, but desiring a bit more. Intriguing.

This is a truly wonderful brew. I look forward to drinking the NH and the SH Wet Hop Ales seasonally.

It's very drinkable and is more balanced and has more flavor and character than say their Torpedo.

It looks great, a nice dark copper with a fabulous hopyy smell.

It can be a session beer despite it's high abv.
