look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

poured 22oz bottle into Teku.

A - A bright honey orange color with a 2 finger white head. Fades to a thin ring and leaves behind some lacing.

S - A pleasant tropical and hoppy aroma with some fresh sweet floral, grass like notes.

T - Tangerine, mango, kiwi, and pineapple all play into the sweet tropical hoppiness. Some floral, grass like notes with a touch of light malt and honey sweetness. A moderately bitter finish.

M - A light to medium feel with a good amount of carbonation. More slick that sticky.

O - As good as every year. If it weren't $9 a bomber I would enjoy more of it.

A- Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color. Small to medium head; about 1.5 fingers. Retention and lacing are both very good, especially for my glass which is not completely clean.

S- Juicy and hoppy. My first wet hop experience doesn't disappoint in the scent category. Hops have more depth and are more floral than pine like in flavor. Actually reminds me of the scent of a flower garden just blooming in spring.

T- For as forward as the hops are in the scent, they are fairly balanced and not overpowering. Pretty good blend of malt and hops. Bitterness is present and strong, but not overpowering. Hop bitterness is more piney on the tongue than the nose. Drink ends with the bang on hops bitterness that leaves a slight aftertaste.

M- Thick creamy, but still with a fairly high level of carbonation. No alcohol heat detectable. A very sessionable beer that doesn't destroy your palate, but gives it something to think about.

Overall, a solid wet hop ale to start with. Not being a hop head, I think I prefer traditional dry-hopped IPA's. That being said, the wet-hopping provides a juiciness in the scent that I haven't encountered before.

The beer pours a clear amber with a fluffy white head that laces. The nose is potent and citrusy (as expected) and semi-sweet. The taste doesn't disappoint with big juicy hops, an equally big and rich body, and distinct freshness. The mouthfeel is fresh tasting and bitter with a bite from the alcohol and lingering sweetness. A little less of a presence from the alcohol would have made this beer perfect. Also, a little separation from FFF's other potent IPAs would have made this beer a definite highlight. However, it's a quality beer that's worth trying and should be consumed ASAP!

I am reviewing off of the last pour from the bottle and it is more opaque than the first pours i believe. Nice oily appearance with bubbles of foam around the glass and some lacing left.

Smell of sweet candied hops and some malt. Sweetness being predominant.

Sweet candied fruits and hop bitterness leading into some sweet maltss. There is a lingering bitterness that is different from the initial flavor that im not loving. There is a ton of hop flavor but it doesn't seem as distinctly "fresh-hopped" as others do.

Smooth and slick mouthfeel.

Overall, not as good as i was hoping. As i said above, this seems more like a regular ipa than a fresh hop beer. Also the aftertaste is a bit off putting. The beer starts off with nice fruity hop flavors but turns into an odd sweet/malty bitterness that overpowers the initial pleasant flavors. I would probably try again on-tap but will look elsewhere for my fresh hop fix in the future.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a small mug.

Orange peel liquid with a rocky yet active crown of shock white foam. Dense funnel-webs of lacing coat the sides. Good retention.

Pure fresh hops in the nose - floral, fruity, herbaceous, and dank. A tiny bit of cotton candy or caramel malt adds contrast.

Starburst, Jolly Ranchers, bubble gum, and candied flowers in the palate entry suggest a wide melange of fruit and perfume. An almost sour citrus note suggest kumquat skins backed by a full bitterness from grapefruit pith. The flavor evolves into a grassy catty finish. Rosewater and faint pine in the aftertaste which continues to shape-shift for quite some time.

Medium-light bodied, well carbonated yet soft and vaguely oily.

A uniquely floral wet-hop ale, this is memorable, though I prefer some West Coast alternatives...

A: Pours a cloudy golden honey color, very small head that fades fast, very light lacing

S: Strong notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, guava, and sweet rock candy. Just loads of sweet tropical fruit with a nice little hint of jasmine/rose in the back of the nose

T: Bitter grassy hops up front, slight tinge of citrus in the back, light bitterness that lingers

M: Medium viscosity, light carbonation, no booze

O: This was a very good fresh hop IPA, definitely something I would buy if it was available in my area
