BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Deschutes Brewery
Oregon, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down Virgil Gamache Farms' famed Amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

Pale golden color. Pine terpene. Slightly metallic up front. More malt than expected. Fruit is mild, apricot come through predominantly. Good lacing. Very little head. Slightly spicy/ dry finish with muted copper. Not as juicy as some other fresh hops, drier finish. Worth a taste. Ex date 1/11/ 15

2014 edition (mosaic hops). Great balance of resiny, tropical hop notes with malt backbone. Best IPA I've had recently and definitely the best bottled wet hop ale I've tried this year.
