Picked up a bunch of these along with a couple Estates Thursday night. Cracked a bottle of the Northern Hemisphere Wet Hop Ale
last night - simply magic in a bottle - tons of pungent citrusy, resiny hop aromatics. Nice and bitter, and layered with an edgy, complex hop flavor.
I've been really disappointed with the last 2 years versions, after the first year I had it ('07? '08?) when it was one of the best beers I had ever had, but 2011 seems to have recaptured all that was lost.
At $4.99 a bottle or less (i had a coupon) its a steal - highly recommended!
PS - The highlighting is for you, Tom
