    The label says "Fresh Hops." Is it actually a fresh hop IPA, and what devilry did they employ to make a year-round fresh hop beer?

    I was also confused by the label. However the press release for the beer says it is a year round addition, so I doubt it is actually fresh hops, as in first of the season wet hops. The beer is great but they get no points for adding to the neverending fresh hop semantics debate.

    I stopped by the production facility on Halloween and got to try it on draft. Definitely saw that it was in bottles too. Great beer.

    Just cracked one. Lots of grass, pine, an grapefruit. I would buy this one again. Good stuff.

    New year round IPA from Breakside. It is truly a great beer, very floral. Really impressive what these guys are doing with their beers. Their Pale and two IPAs are outstanding. The 3 Bs of Oregon brewing highlight the best we have to offer. Barley Browns, Block 15 and Breakside.

    Might as well make it the 4 Bs and add Boneyard

    I had it last night, good lord that is one fresh hoppy SOB!! ABV? I didnt see it on the bottle, it felt fairly thin in the mouth but certainly left me feeling good by the time I was through it.

    ABV is 6.6%.

    I've had plenty of Breakside's regular IPA, but somehow haven't tried Wanderlust until last night and, wow, I've obviously been missing out. Easily one of the best IPA's I've tasted.
