Fresh Hop IPA. It's harvest time! Sodbuster Farms in the Willamette Valley graced us with some beautiful Centennial and Simcoe hops straight from the vine.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle, bottled on 9/22/15. Pours a light copper color with some cloudiness and a mostly white head. Minty pine aromas with some breadiness. Taste starts off malty with mint and pine flavors flowing in behind. Very fresh tasting. Some caramel notes with a mild, lingering bitterness on the end. Feel is moderately heavy with light carbonation. Overall very solid and fresh.

500ml bottle - not sure that this is a DIPA at 7.6% ABV, especially as the label (and thus brewery) don't claim it as such.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat chunky beige head, which leaves some decent splattered snow rime lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of gritty pale and caramel malt, sugary mint, muddled citrus zest, and mixed herbal, leafy, and pine hop astringencies. The taste is more grainy, kind of bready caramel malt, orange and white grapefruit rind, a further subtle tropical fruitiness, still active herbal mint notes, and some level earthy, weedy, floral, and piney hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly understated in their generic and kind of pandering frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and mostly smooth, just a touch of burbling alcohol starting to tug away at things. It finishes off-dry, the base caramel gaining a mild meaty character, while that leafy mint thing trundles on, and the other 'fresh' hop players put 'er in neutral.

More fresh-hopped beer, more unusual taste and aroma profiles, ok, so be it. Interesting enough, I suppose, what with the herbal/mint essence pushing to the forefront, but, like with pumpkin beers this time of year, I'm starting to yen for the 'regular' version of the styles I've come to know and love. Enter, over the top holiday brews.

Poured on draft at Crafted Tap House. Look and smell were okay, and the front end of the taste was just fine. But the swallow was disgusting. I can only compare the flavor to that of gasoline. To be sure my taste buds were not shot, I had each of the three others at the table take a sip without telling them my impression - all three made the same face and found it to be undrinkable. Maybe it's the tap line, but I cannot recommend nor would I venture beyond an exploratory taste of this one again.

Very unique IPA. Lemon grassy aroma and very pronounced. Smell is reproduced in the front and end taste. Great head retention. Nice beer

Poured from tap in pint glass at Slow Burger in PDX. Very hoppy but still smooth and drinkable. The wet hops give more hop flavor than bitterness, one of the best fresh hopped beers I have had.

Clear reddish gold with a huge long lasting white head and copious lace.
Smell is floral hops with a touch of bread malt.
Taste is fruity citrus hops with a large amount of bread crust malts making this easy drinking. The green or fresh hop aspect is very tasty but the bitterness is much less than the 96 IBU's on the bottle would suggest.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and a slightly wet and mildly bitter finish.
Overall a very tasty and interesting beer but lacks the Wow factor. This is the 2015 version which is 7.6% abv and 96 IBUs. Bottled on 9/22/15. About three weeks old.
