COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This listing is for 2010 and later releases.

This yearís Hop Harvest features fresh Centennial hops from third-generation, family-owned Goschie Farms in Silverton, Ore. Newly named brewmaster Jeff Edgerton and family recently drove to the farm with a utility trailer and burlap bags, and brought back 400 pounds of fresh Centennial hops. Within an hour, crews cut open the sacks and hops were blended with the base beer that had been prepared in advance and cooled to prevent cooking off the natural citrus and floral notes of the hops. Almost two weeks later, brewers lightly filtered the beer and filled kegs and 22-oz bottles with this farm-fresh brew.

amber. off-white head. average retention. doughy fresh-cut grass nose, oily, green, dank and sharp up front. medium body. quickly diminishing and drying finish buzzing acidity on the tongue afterward. resinous and sticky but mostly dry. much better than the atrocious 2009 batch, and may be their best yet.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2011 22oz from Fred Meyer. N.Salem. $5.49 Fairly typical slighly hazy burnt orange IPA-esque coloured beer with a very nice thick off white head. Aroma leafy/lemony hops what else? This one smells slightly less than fresh..but still nice enough. Taste is way more intense in hopping than the aroma suggested..very strong with hints of pine/spruce along with the citric character. Malt seems on the weak side though. OK on the palate,Maybe a little thin. Average Overall a nicely drinkable but not stellar IPA..it might have been better very fresh rather than a couple of months old now. this is a RERATE 2011 22 oz from the N.Salem Freddys. $5.25 typical orange coloured IPA,slightly hazy..large thick creamy white heid Strange chemical/alc aromas..candied sugar and some spice..strange and not good Taste is also bad..semi sour sweet barely any hop..this is awful Mouthfeel i suppose is OK but this is disasterous Terrible terrible stuff from Bridgeport. I hope this was a bad bottle but it really didnt seems so..just an awful beer terrible terrible stuff

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Tap at the Eugene Fresh Hop Festival. Golden orange pour with a thick grip of white foam and some very nice sticky lacing. Smells of floral and grapefruit hops with some bready malt notes as well. Flavor is basically oranges baked into bread, very smooth and easy to drink and bursting with hop flavor. I donít remember enjoying any previous vintages nearly as much, I hope they maintain this recipe.

22 oz. from Kim. Hop harvest this, wet hop that, farm-fresh over there. I donít know if I simply lack the refined palate to be able to tell the difference, but I donít think there is much to be said regarding the use of fresh hops over dried. The beer tastes OK, even if it smells a little funny, but ultimately disappoints as it tastes no different than a session IPA.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Orange pour, thick white head. Aroma of citrus, floral, herbal hops on a lightly bready, sweet malt backdrop, flavor hits pretty much the same notes with a little more "green" leafy character. A very, accessible nice beer for hop lovers.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Fresh bomber. The pour gives a hazy, deep, golden-orange amber body with a moderate head of quickly fading, yellowish-khaki foam. Thin flares, splotches, and spots of lacing mark the glass. The aroma is very grainy, featuring dry cereal prominently. Buttery toffee lies underneath, followed by dry floral hops and mild resinous pine. It really doesnít smell like a fresh hop, to be honest. It actually smells kind of stale. Flavors follow suit, very buttery and clearly laden with diacetyl. Dry cereal grain, wheat, and minerals are obtrusive, even astringent, and the hops are faded and weak. Dusty, peppery, wildflower hops arenít exactly what Iím looking for in a harvest ale. Where is the sticky, dripping, resinous bitterness? Iím getting more cardboard here. The palate is on the thin side of medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, scratchy, papery finish. Bleh, this one doesnít impress me one bit.

MarinaMarket (211) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Floral, citrus, alcohol, and hops aroma. Solid frothy head that lays down after a bit. Well balanced IPA with a bit of a viscuos mouthfeel. Not creamy but perhaps a bit oily/sticky. I was expecting huge bitter hops taste, and am pleasantly surprised by a nice very drinkable IPA. Pretty damn good, although I donít really see much difference in the "hop harvest" aspect. Tasted from the 22 oz bottle @ 60įF.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Smells of fresh grassy and floral hops with a bit of citrus and resin. Just a hint of caramel and toasty malt to suggest some balance. Light copper golden color, a tad hazy...probably chill haze..., quickly receding head with no retention. Medium+ bitterness and barely middle of the road toasty caramel malt to balance. Medium body, decent carbonation. BIG fresh hop attack with some astringency, malt support in the middle and a very long and dry finish with hops prevailing for sure. Ahhh fresh hops! Itís the most wonderful time of the year!

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tap @ The Spar. Hazy orange pour with a stiff, off-white head leaving a coarse lace. Fruity, citrus nose with some lemon zest. Carbonation makes the body seem light and obscures the middle. Bitter, tea, orange citrus finish with a very late orange juice sweetness. Prefer BridgePortís bottle-conditioned IPA: itís more complex, balanced like an IPA, and has a better mouth feel.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 22, 2010
22 oz bottle. Hazy orange with a dense, creamy off white head. Aroma of citrus, honey, pine, flowers and some hay. The flavor has some bitterness up front then the sweetness from the malt comes in, there is a zesty lemony finish. Medium body with average carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Overall a very good IPA, Iím starting to think that the whole wet hop thing is a gimmick though.
