4.03/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a massive head that sheets the pint glass

Smell: Caramel malt with a vague piney aspect

Taste: Opens with a lot of bready/caramel flavor but by mid-palate, the herbal/piney hops balance out some of the sweetness; after the swallow, the bready malt returns and lingers in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Found this one in the back of the fridge and didn't realize how old it was; I marked up the score a little higher as the hops have faded somewhat but it is still a decent beer, though the name is rather juvenile (but that is Sweetwater for you)

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel malts, big amount of earthiness, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is caramel malts, grass, wood, toffee, grapefruit, and bread. Mouthfeel is medium, dry, and bitter. Good beer.

I had not had a chance to get a hold of some of the older one offs from Sweetwater but thanks to the generosity of a very nice and fine trader I was able to track these all down. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was enjoyed on 04/17/2010.

Dark amber pours with lots of reddish highlights along the sides and the bottom of the glass. Nice head of around two fingers in height then rose up from the bottom of the glass to cap it off quite well. Dripping down the sides the lacing really thickened up the further down you went. Aroma is piney hops, rich with loads of caramel malts thrown in as well. Not as pungent as I would have hoped but it still had a lot of depth and character to it for sure. Nice balance here as it warms some notes of orange mix in. Creamy, very, very full body for the style and this really grabbed my attention. The flavors were able to really just lay across the tongue and really soak up through the palate. Again very well done and I have to admit I am really liking what I am seeing here. Smooth, lightly dry finish is capped by piney hops and a nice touch of caramel flavor.

Overall very solid. Obviously the hops have faded a touch but I really think as a red ale it is working even better now. I would love to see this in six packs, could really work on a fall night.

Thanks to TimmyP for a nice winter-time trade that included this bottle. The look of it freaked my wife out a bit, so it's sat for longer than I intended in the fridge until I snuck it out tonight. Even without the, ah, artwork, she's not digging it much.

Ach, vell. Nice looking amber color, nothing wild, just a touch of haze from the dregs of the bottle. Smells very good, sweet, bready malts tangled in citrus.

Wet Dream isn't quite what it's cracked up to be. There's a seamy, metallic flow in this that distracts & detracts from the other qualities. Very malty, bready, with a cascade of sweetness. The hops show themselves only at the end & with a quick, unfocused slash of bitterness. I suspect the wet-hopping would have been more pronounced three months ago. If it weren't making my fillings sing, I could drink this while someone painted my picture.

Pretty good beer, but as noted, the metallic quality knocks this down a notch or two. Remove that & you'd have a nice amber. As is, just pretty good.

Thanks to gford217 for keeping my sweetwater needs fulfilled.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. A semi soft pour produced a solid 1 inch off white head. Receding to leave a very generous collar of retention and thick sticky lace coverage.
Color is a hazey reddish amber, not exactly red, but not exactly not red.

Aroma is super malty and sweet, bready buttered biscuits, a touch of cotton candy, distant hops in a grassy minty aroma with mild bittering.

Mouthfeel is terrific, full thickness feel with modest carbonation, quite laid back too and very smooth with a sticky finish.

Taste is a bready blasting of malt and grain busting at the seams. Sweet flavors build, but do not overwhelm in a awkward annoying way. Desirable delicious sweet malt.
Hops do not bite here, they have that whole cone, low alpha flavor, providing a freshness that cannot be denied as well as a mild mint and herbal tea flavor.
Finishing with sweet malt and hops that pucker only slightly in a light bittering fashion.

This is a hugely drinkable brew that can be enjoyed by all types of beer drinkers. Very clean and easy going down. Loved that part of it. The color though does not seem completely intact with the style.

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a deep clear copper, with a finger of frothy off-white head. Real sturdy flareup here that spreads a thin layer of creamy foam across the surface, throwing a big foamy cascade of lacing up on the sides of the glass. The aroma is dank and herbal smelling, with a gritty and spicy feel in the nose. Some citrus and roasty caramel malt notes give the hops a bit of an extra backing tang at times.

The taste is earthy and mellow across the tongue at first, before more aggressive notes of pine, bitter citrus, and spice spreads across the back of the throat. The malt backbone on this is sticky and sweet feeling, with caramel and bread giving a deep roasted burnt edge to the profile at times. Earth and pithy fruit hangs well back the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a slick and oily texture to it that lends this an almost lighter feel in the mouth at times. There is a touch of warmth to this. Not a whole lot but enough to put off a bit of a medicinal character when mixed with all of those herbal hops.

This was pretty decent. The hops came off as a little more earthy and mellow than aggressive but still maintained a fairly fresh pop to it. The only really holding this back was the warmth in the body but even that wasn't too big of a deal. Solid entry here from the Dank Tank series.

22 from GeezLynn ... Awesome trade Geoff!!

Nice pour into my Delirium goblet produced a fantastic long lasting 2 finger lite khaki head... the brew is a polished orange/lite amber.. great lacing.

Nose is surprisingly hoppy for a fresh hop beer.. maybe the most "grassy" hop nose I've ever smelled.. bits of citrus zest with some lite caramel and toasted maltiness... some nice floral notes show with warmth.

Hops still come across as grassy... even minty.. there is a great oily mouthfeel that is normally there in the uberhopped double and triple IPA's.. in this glass, the hop flavors are abundant while still retaining a nice "fresh" expectation.. the malts are much more integrated than the nose.. here the sweetness helps with the hops.. herbal finish is long and lingering... great medium body with a smooth yet very present carbonation..

as I finish my 2nd glass, a real earthy component permeates all aspects of this beer... adds a bunch of complexity to an already well made beer.

Thanks again Geoff for the proper trade... you are a welcome addition to the addiction.

Poured a nice, hazy light amber color, good carbonation with a nice off-white head. Nose is malty, slight hop note, with lots of caramel. Taste is sweet, malty, slightly hoppy, bitter, with some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, but is this really an amber or a big pale ale??

22oz poured into a pint glass.

Thanks to gford217 for this Secret Santa gift.

A - Clear copper with an inch and a half of foamy off-white head that lingers for a long time. Lots of lacing.

S - Piney hops with a little bit of slightly sour orange zest. Some toasted malt and caramel as well. Hint of something almost soapy though that brings it down from a 4.

T - Nice juicy piney hops with a hint of sweetness. Reasonably malty backbone with some biscuits and a hint of toffee. Pretty good, but not amazing.

M - Full-bodied with moderate carbonation, but with a little slick oiliness to it that's not entirely pleasant.

D - Started out high, but after I got through most of a pint, I wasn't ready to chug the rest of the bottle.

Had a lot of potential going for it but there was just enough of something slightly off to it that kept me from giving it much above average.

22oz. bomber on 1/4/10.

A - Emerged from the bottle a hazy deep amber/bronzed copper-colored body with a bubbly patchy of beige head that flared back up into a creamy cap with each swirl of the glass, yielding spotty lace around the sides.

S - Pretty fresh, dank earthy hop aroma with citrus and spicy notes, but pretty tame overall. Malt base is comprised of slightly burnt sweet caramel and sugar.

T - Spicy initial flavor with an earthy hop flair and plenty of sweet caramel malt. Finishes with a toasted grainy character and a hint of alcohol warmth amidst a mild grassy and herbal hop bite.

M - Medium bodied with a syrupy texture and very soft carbonation. Finish is bittersweet with a touch of alcohol warmth on the palate.

D - Good but not too terribly exciting in the grand scheme of things. While Wet Dream does have a decent amount of fresh hop flavor, nothing really leaps out either, resulting in a pretty tame yet tasty brew.

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Amber orange with a decent head, stays a thick film all the way through the glass

S: Good dose of malt, citrusy hops too, but not huge grapefruit

T: Mild grapefruit with a strong bready taste, balances very well, the malt provides some good flavors instead of just providing a backbone for all hop flavor

M: Really smooth, lighter side of medium

D: High, nice flavors, not too strong though, smoothness helps

Notes: I really like this beer. If you like your IPA's bready than this beer is for you. It has both flavor and balance.

Pours an appetizing clear coppery amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, cream-white head. Aroma is strongly fruity, somewhat hoppy, and a little sweet. Flavor is a little malty and strongly hoppy, but only a tiny bit bitter and a little fruity-sweet. Texture is silky smooth, a little thick, and quite tingly and fizzy - it literally dances on the tongue and on the way down. Another winner from Sweetwater!

Had this brought up by a friend living in Atlanta. Thanks Ben!
22oz bomber

Pours a hazy amber with orange highlights. Thick and creamy light tan head. My mouth was watering at first glance.

Sweet smells of caramel with a bold punch of citrus, pine and hints of apricot.

The taste is bold with a strong bready malt bakbone and heavy handfuls of chinook. Lots of grapefruit and pine in the finish. This is a sweet and tasty amber ale to say the least. Finishes fairly dry with a strong aftertaste of pine.

This is a delicious amber ale and a great representation from the east coast.

Hand delivered by my father from Atlanta... Doesn't know much about beer, but a great delivery system of some great brews from Atlanta. Hats off to Bhalter8 for providing this as a recommendation.

Pours with a nice creamy white head that shows excellent retention. Not much in the way of lacing later. Bright brownish/amber color. Excellent clarity and no visible carbonation.

Aroma was more sweet than anticipated. Slight fruit aromas and a touch of floral, but really in the background.

The flavor was nice, well balanced and showed what I think are some characteristics of the yeast. Tasted a little like a Rouge product. Somewhat nutty, slight toffee, lots of fruity esters and a slight touch of citrus. Again, there was a sense of the yeast throughout.

Medium bodied, mild carbonation, smooth on the tongue.

Very drinkable. While I don't think this is epic, I certainly am happy that I had a chance to dip my toes into the Dank Tanks.

It's time for fresh hops, thanks to gford217. On to the beer:

Into my Spaten Oktoberfest mug, the beer features a deep reddish color with the head on top being very thick and creamy on top. It leaves some patchy lacing in the mug. In the aroma, fresh metallic hops hit the nose. A touch of citrus fruit and a smack of burnt sugar make things more interesting.

At 7.5% ABV, it sure tastes and seems a lot lighter than that. A delicate, flowery hoppiness for most of flavor. It consists mostly of mangoes and tangerine. Very light dry biscuit malt and a undertone of fruit punch add a little to this hop dominate beer. Ok, now I'm getting the kick, but it doesn't come until the end of the sip. The extra kick creates a dull bitterness towards the back of the palate. Medium bodied, little carbonation, and is a solid drinker.

My first beer from Sweetwater is a solid one. Good enough balance, soft hops, and a kick to put you to sleep faster (...presumbably).

Poured into a tulip. Dark red/amber color with a big frothy white head that quickly recedes into white clumps.

Big chinook hop aroma as expected. Very grassy and to a lesser degree resinous pine. Little biscuit malt in there also.

Caramel and biscuit malts step out first, followed by plenty of citrus hops. Flavor passes through the mouth clean, dry, and quickly without much in the way of aftertaste.

Fine carbonation leaves the mouthfeel silky, yet on the thin side.

Overall, a thinner body of flavor than you anticipate from a fresh-hopped ale. With the big wet-hopped smell, you're expecting more than a light flavor. Those wonderful, enticing fresh hop flavors reeled me in, but in the end the lack of body left me hanging. Tasty enough, but it's too bad those hops weren't coupled with a more worthy body of malt.

Recieved from Oobawa in the Twisted 666's BIF. Thanks for the extra!

Poured into my La Fin Du Monde tulip. Pours a deep copper/burnished red color with a very nice, creamy white head. Lacing clings very heavily to the upward turn of the glass.

Not a huge aroma but what is there, is very nicely balanced. Grassy, sweet maltiness, slightly piney with a bit of lemon and herbs on the backside. Fresh hoppy bite and resiny grassiness on the tongue, but also a nice malty caramel flavor comes through. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The 7.5% never makes itself know. I feel myself having to slow down my sips or the beer would have been gone 20 minutes ago.

Very drinkable red/amber ale. Paired nicely with curried rice and stir fried veggies with ham and curry sauce. A simple, not overly spicy or strong curry went well with the medium hoppy/malty ale. Nice offering from Sweetwater

This beer pours a solid ruby orange with two fingers of off white head that fades slowly and in a creamy way. The carbonation looks slow and steady. The smell is a very concise hop smell that's reminiscent of a great IPA, but without any other hops. The malt smells sweet and full and like slightly toasted caramel I suppose. I like how I now know exactly what Chinook hops smell like. It's awesome.

Glug glug glug

The flavor is very heavy hop bitterness that kind of drops in on your tongue followed by a rich piney taste, with the malt under it. The hop kick on this smacked me around a little with just how concentrated it was. Overall this is pretty good, but I can see why using mixed hops is as amazing as it is. The malt is also essential for rounding out the flavor of this with its complex sweetness. Mouth feel is good to go on this one.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice slightly hazy amber color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy/creamy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, slight hop note, with lots of caramel. The taste is sweet, malty, slightly hoppy, bitter, with some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, another pretty tasty brew from SW.

Another wonderful sexual reference in a Sweetwater title. Gotta love it. I just wish their "blue" was titled "blue balls."
Anyway, poured this one out of the bomber into a Sweetwater pint glass.

Mostly clear, but slightly hazy copper/brown with orange. Ginormously huge, foamy off-white head that reluctantly calms down after a minute or two.

Nose is fantastic fresh hop juice. Very west coasty.

Nose carries over into the taste. Dominated by simple, well done strong hop flavors. Some biscuity malts try to sneak through. Very gentle ethanol at the end.
Decent mouthfeel, but a bit watery. Good drinkability. Nice entry in the series.

22 oz bottle I picked up from Hop City in Atlanta a few weeks ago. I was a bit bummed that I wasn't able to make it out closer to the release to grab a bottle, and I was afraid I missed the boat on being able to try this one. The good news is that I walked in to see that Hop City got a huge shipment in and still had a bunch sitting around. Served up in my Dogfish Head shaped pint.

A: Pours a reddish hued amber in body. Held to the light, getting more of an orange hue coming out as well. The body is pretty clear . . . sad. For some reason I was expecting a good amount of cloud in here but alas. There is a very lazy carbonation activity in here as well. I got about a finger and a half of white head on the pour. The head is a bit thin, not being thick or fluffy at all. Sadly, there is no retention here at all. This fell to a very thin white ring. No lace here at all. Ah well, can't win em all I suppose.

S: Very nice and large hops aroma here. Very floral and has a good pine presence as well. Its very abundant and it does take over the aroma but it isn't insanely huge or in your face. It really does show how the wet hopping helps the aroma in such a huge way. There is a little bit of malt peeking through but it won't get through that hop aroma. Very nice. Dig this for sure.

T: Flavor is much different than what I was expecting . . . in a good way. The flavor is very hop forward but it isn't aggressive at all. Just a great amount of hop flavor but it doesn't kill you or wreck the palate. Very floral and pine going on here. It really showcases the hops but doesn't go over the top and think that is thanks to the malts in here. We have a lightly sweet malt presence with a light tinge of caramel that really cuts all these hops. Just a great balance that tilts towards the hops.

M: This beer has a good a good sized medium body but it doesn't weigh heavy on the palate. Carbonation is much lighter than expected, but still remains refreshing and drinkable. Alcohol is not really noticeable at all. I really had to take a double take when I saw this was over 7%. Just doesn't come across at all. Aftertaste is all hops with just a touch of sugar.

D: This beer was a big suprise. From reading about this beer coming out, I thought this was going to more like a West Coast style IPA. Although the smell is big hops, but the flavor really is subtle and enjoyable. This beer really is a fantastic crafting of the hops flavor. You get all the flavor without it being over the top or aggressive. I am really impressed with this beer. My only wish is that I picked up more bottles because I thought this was going to be one of those beers I would only want to have once. I screwed up, this is great. Damned good job by Sweetwater.

I picked up this bomber at Hop City in Atlanta, glad to find some still on shelves. This particular batch from the dank tank sounds just my style. A reading from the bottle: "Our Wet Dream makes its mark with a full 420 pound load of dripping wet chinook hops that were hand plucked fresh from the fields at Vinny Van Horn's family farm in Washington state ... within 24 hours of those juicy little suckers dangling on the vine, we brewed em up, defining this beautiful 7.5% ABV red ale with explosive crazy fresh hop flavors". Well, mostly down my alley, I'd prefer a pale malt base over the caramel malts of a red ale.

The beer is clear, dark orange-copper colored, and with my aggressive pour I got almost no head. The 1/10 finger of foam that did exist was off white and wet looking. The aroma is chinooks hops (I guess), but the malt base threatens to be equal to it. The battle is just as even in the taste, the flavor of smooth caramel more than matches the spicy hops (and that's too bad). But Sweetwater wanted an amber ale and they achieved a delicious one. One is enough for me, next time they have these fresh hops I hope they make an aggressive IPA.

This 22oz bottle courtesy of bhalter8. Thanks Ben!

It pours a clear amber with over one finger's worth of foam with some nice lacing.

It smells hoppy *and* malty and is very nice. Citrus and other fruitiness for the hops, caramel sweetness and some earth from the malt. I like.

Taking some sips, I find the balance from the nose is in the taste as well. Earthy malt flavour starts things off with some caramel sweetness and a touch of some roastiness. The hops bring some citrus and a good dose of pine bitterness which dominates in the finish. Again, I like.

Light bodied for me, though it is near medium, it has medium carbonation and has an overall smooth feel to it.

Drinkability? The 7.5%abv is unabtrusive and it's just plain fun and easy to drink. A fine and solid offering from Sweetwater.

22oz bomber sent to me from user Yesac, drank from my sierra nevada hop tulip glass.

A- this one pours a clear dark amber/copper colored body with a tightly knit beige head. the head is very sticky and leaves behind solid walls of lacing.

S- sweet caramel and toffee malts upfront. theres a pungent blast of hops at the end. lots of resiny pine. a bit of grapefruit like citrus as well.

T- theres some of the caramel malts i could detect. the resiny pine flavored hops are also there. theres also fruity notes. orange and lemon more than grapefruit.

M- a little thinner than i was expecting. almost watery. creamy from the carbonation.

D- an interesting idea for a fresh hop beer. id check this one out again next year, but its nothing im dying to have all the time.

Pour - Dark amber with some red highlights. Wow, this looks great. The head is thick and off-white and resembles waffle batter.

Aroma - Awesome. Super fresh hops, wow. Its tough to bottle that smell and I give props to any brewery that can do it and do it well. The piney, grapefruity aroma that you crave is there with this one.

Taste - Sweetness right off the bat followed by some oily, resiny hop flavors. Its got some piney tastes along with some oranges and tangerines but is not super bitter or sharp and drying on the tongue. Its actually quite juicy and refreshing.

Overall - I like it a lot. Its quite easy to drink and doesn't have a super sharp finish to it that dries the tongue. Wet hopped ales are not easy to produce if you live in the Southeast so I commend Sweetwater for the work they put into this one. I was going to share this bottle with a friend but I guess that isn't happening now...

Would I buy more of it? - I might if I was in Georgia and I saw this one on tap. Its a pretty solid beer and Sweetwater, along with Terrapin, seem to rule the good beer scene in Georgia.
