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.

A: Orange brown with a little sediment, 3 finger orange brown tinged head, moderate carbonation.

S: Caramel with orange, hops, citrus, pine, slight barnyard. Fruity and floral.

T: Follows nose with caramel, orange, hops citrus, pine and some fruity and floral, only getting the barnyard when siphoned over the top of my tongue.

M: Syrupy, medium thick body, medium low carbonation.

O: Great IPA. Balanced, the barnyard is not overwhelming and acceptable, but does bring it down slightly in my opinion. Love the idea of it all harvested fresh in one day, love the bottle, love the taste. Should be tried.
