Beautiful golden, nearly transparent ale, topped by an easy two fingers of snow white foam. Retention and lacing are excellent.

Aroma is light biscuit and wildflower honey. Something about .... hops? Is that hops?

Dear lord, yes, that's a ton of hops on the nose. Grapefruit, mango, lemon, mandarin orange, green leaf, grass, pineapple. Some minor sharp herbs - oregano - and pepper, but the main thrust is tropical and citrus juice backed by leafy vegetal tones.

Flavor follows: this really is a hop-forward brew, featuring fresh but familiar hop tones floating on a pale cracker malt base with touches of honey and caramel grains. Hops are bitter, bright, biting, and aggressive; it's a very old-school, nearly West Coast representation of hoppy goodness. Leafy greens, grapefruit pith and peel, lemon, orange, pine, and just a touch of dankness.

Lively and crisp on the palate, although it's a touch syrupy on the second half - a little surprising for a 7% ABV single IPA.

A really excellent brew that really showcases the hops without reinventing the IPA.

First had poured from 22-oz. bomber, stamped (apparently) “BOTTLED ON 10-2-17,” into tulip. Typically wet hop oil-saturated harvest ale, balanced nicely by the distinctive glazed nut and toffee malt body.

From tasting notes 10/13/17
Had on-tap at 3 Floyds Brewing in Munster, IN

Appearance - Served up in a 10oz nonic, crystal clear and brilliant golden orange in color with a thin layer of suds sitting atop. A good amount of lacing patterns the glass in broken sheeting and lesser spotting.

Smell - The aroma is citrusy with fresh orange peel and a touch of tropical fragrance. A bit of leafy green character ties it together.

Taste - Follows the nose, though a bit more tame than expected. Moderate citrusy bite with a solid backing of leafy character. Orange essence becomes the dominant force by mid-taste, driving that flavor strong into the finish and leaving an orange impression that coats the taste buds well into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in bowy with fair carbonation. Smooth drinker but the finish is rather watery.

Overall - A pretty darn tasty Wet Hop IPA that unfortunately suffers from a limp, watery body. A shame.

Fresh hop perfection on the nose and mouthfeel. Taste is typical, very refreshing and juicy. Fruity, light pine and sweet malt. Bitter at the end and medium dryness. Very good beer, have always had it in the Fall.
