This was the first fresh-hop beer of the season for me, and it was quite green with a very lively feel...but it really isn't all that tasty in other respects. After having tasted a number of them, though, I'm looking back and appreciating it a little more. It still isn't one of the better ones, but I'll give it props for being extremely fresh tasting...and I've got such fond memories of cascade-centric beers that I'm happy to have this one around.

good not great as the minnesota wet hops go, in my experience anyway, which is majorly limited. i liked their hop dish a little better i think. this just doesnt have much more to make it identifiable as a wet hop other than the aroma, which is easily my favorite part of this one. its got a great nose, more traditional hop varietals it seems, but plenty of them, and bushy and piney in the nose. the flavor though is just sort of a regular ipa, out dueled a little bit by the coppery malt base, and seemingly too balanced for a beer that is supposed to showcase the hops. i dont really get it. it tastes great though honestly, just doesnt show off as a fresh hopped beer. i thought the feel was lacking too, not having any of that vegetal sweet oil so many of these have, and seeming a little watery and bland on the palate as a result. carbonation is fine though, and the finish is great, more juicy hops left on the very back end after the grain sugar dissipates. i would drink a hop dish before i drank another one of these, but its worth trying, i suppose they all are...
