Had this earlier.  Pretty good!  The beer almost was as orange as the can and very much tasted like orange juice

Should we take a cab home, Jesus?
Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...
But can you walk on this much beer?

UPDATE?? :popcorn:
thought I was gonna get my first of the season on my visit to Asheville last weekend, but I was a day late, Burial sold out before I got there...

Damn. Slim pickins around here too, going to hit up a farm brewery later that has one. Likely their first attempt so no expectations.

Update: no good. Almost zero hop character, weird yeast notes.

My friends say I'm like doing the laundry and forgetting the bleach: I'm not as bright as I could be.

UPDATE?? :popcorn:

It's on 100% out here now.  Had Breakside's fresh hop pils and a 4 pack of their fresh hop Wanderlust...it's all just so fucking good.

I think Breakside is going to have 15 different fresh hop beers on tap or canned this season.  Crazy.

Need to get a cornhole out here next year during this time.   :unsure:
i'm not good at putting this stuff in words but i can't see myself with anyone else except maybe urbanhack.

DIY wet-hop season is done for me. Picked the last of them last night. :(

Sounds like this isn't a thing in the midwest anymore. :cry:
Best one I ever had was from Scratch, and the hops were from a farm down there.
Of course i've never been to the PNW during harvest season...yet.

Maybe the midwest skipped it this year because of how fucked up the entire shipping industry currently is :shrug:

That would be more of a gamble. It seemed like express services weren't affected, just standard USPS. I didn't know UPS/Fedex were also experiencing delays, but it makes sense due to the higher volume.

I just figured there's no demand anymore for beer that's not ice cream or orange juice flavored.

I can tell you paying for a two person driving team with a temp-controlled trailer to drive straight from Yakima Valley is not cheap.  Then you have to pay to return all of the bins they ship the hops in.

No but Fresh Crush was pretty solid. Fruity grapefruit & pine, old school IPA minus the caramel malt.

This is meh to me, but fresh hop has never been my thing

https://www.laaleworks.com/shop/hop-season/


Hop Season is our first ‘Wet Hop’ beer, with 60 pounds of field-fresh El Dorado hops. The pale ale style showcases how special these fresh hops, in a beer that is light, effervescent, and resin forward with a balanced bitterness. Both aroma and flavor are delicate. Hop Season is the perfect beer to finish out the summer and welcome LA’s fall weather.

Fresh hop season is here. It’s now my favorite time of year out here.  First on the list is Fresh Hop Elliot from Ex Novo.  Canned three days ago.  Woooooooo!

Sadly it's a pretty rare occurrence here. The few local ones that were good I can count on one hand... Scratch, Middle Brow, Marz. Rev and Lake Effect make pretty bad ones with "community sourced" hops.

I tend to just wet hop light lagers myself now... :rockzo:

This Friday, we are releasing our freshest catch. You heard that right. It's Fresh Catch!

After harvesting fresh Amarillo hops from @crosbyhops we then dumped them into our custom "hop back" tank to capture the fresh hops' aroma oils. The result is a bold, resinous trophy catch bursting with hop notes of ripe orange and tangerine.

Dammit, that sounds really tasty
Quote from: J-Rod
I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Scored a new wet hop IPA from Marz today, Zewski’s Brewskis. Fresh Mackinac hops from Landlocked Hops in Lodi, IL plus Columbus and Centennial.
