look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- golden color with a small head that disappeared after a short time, a little hazy

S- mostly the hops come through on the smell, maybe some citrus but nothing overpowering

T- strong hop taste with citrus mingled in, and at the end I get hit with a strong hop flavor that lingers

M- mild nothing over powering, not as smooth as I would have figured from looking at it

O- not bad one of my first wet hopped beers in awhile, mine sat in the fridge a little longer than probably is ideal, so I weighed that in but a beer that a hop lover should try at least once

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Nice amount of heavy lacing.

S - Not much going on here. Some faint pine and sweet citrus.

T - Lots of piney hops with some sweet citrus in the nose. Lots of bitterness in the finish. Hops really dominate the flavor.

M - Thin body with medium carbonation. Dry sticky mouthfeel.

O - A nice harvest ale. Very easy drinking and quite enjoyable. Would definetly drink again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a orangish yellow color. good clarity. a finger of white head that leaves a nice lacing

Smell: juicy hops. mango, lots of citrus. lighter on the bitter hop aspect.

Taste: starts off with a lemon-bread taste, partially from hops and partially from malts. transitions more towards a juicy hops taste. ends with a huge hop resin bitterness

Mouthfeel: huge lingering business. too much that takes from the drinkability.

Overall: good taste but overly bitter. a good beer for the wet hop lover but nothing that blew me away
