Notes / Commercial Description:
It's fresh hop time! 200 lbs of fresh wet hops, one day off the vine, straight from Yakima Valley! This year, the fourth year in a row, our friend Darren suggested a curveball and sent us fresh Styrian Goldings. They are floral, slightly spicy hops normally used for styles like Saisons.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottled on 7-15-11

A: Pours a clear copper with barely a finger of off-white head that quickly recedes into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: Sweet caramel malts along with some light spice notes and bubblegum and candy sugar. There are some sweet citrus notes as well. Smells more like a Belgian style than an IPA.

T: Again, caramel malts along with some light spice notes. . The bubblegum isn't as apparent here in the flavor, but it's still sweet. There are some light pine hop flavors along with a slight bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is a little watery.

O: This beer tastes more like a watered-down barleywine or old ale than an IPA. Maybe it was hoppier fresh, but at 3 weeks the hops are very subdued and it's too sweet for an IPA. Glad I only bought a single bottle of this one.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Bottle Sept. 15th, a whole 5 days ago. From the Yazoo blog. "It's fresh hop time! 200 lbs of fresh wet hops, one day off the vine, straight from Yakima Valley! This year, the fourth year in a row, our friend Darren suggested a curveball and sent us fresh Styrian Goldings. They are floral, slightly spicy hops normally used for styles like Saisons. "

A- Dark orange with come copper notes. A finger and half of light head. Some lacing.

S- Very tame for a fresh hop IPA. Hoppy, but more of in a pilsener type way than what you'd expect from an IPA. Slightly peppery. Slightly piney.

T- Pretty interesting. Again, not particularly IPA-like. I guess that is because I've never had a Styrian Goldings IPA. Some spiciness. Some pepper and pine like the nose. Not easy to put a finger on this one.

M- Medium bodied. Hop Projects are pretty consistent here.

O- This is a very interesting beer. Last years Fresh Hop HP with Sorachi Ace hops missed the mark big time, IMO. I wouldn't say that's the case here, as the beer is pretty good, but it isn't what one would expect based on the other beers in the series.
