COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Bond Street Series. This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 270 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers' farm outside Salem, Oregon will be added to the 50 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel brewed.

12.28.14 best by. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 11.15.14. A: Candied strawberry with a little green vegetable. Very juicy smelling. A: 1/2 finger head. See through light amber body. T: Strawberry and orange dominate. Green vegetable, slight pine, honey malt, and some funk are subtle. P: It feels flat even though there are bubbles on the back end. It’s a bit watery also. O: This was disappointingly too subtle for a fresh hop ale. It was a rare miss from Deschutes.

unclemike (2546) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Rich amber beer with a nice off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with sweet malt. Very dtrong hop aroma. Sweet malt and citrus flavor, but not enough to match the aroma. Lighter bodied than expected. Low bitterness, but some hop flavor.

Bottle from a friend. Copper color, with white head. Malt and fresh hops on the nose. Taste caramel malt and fresh grassy hops. Well balanced, and classic.

badwhale (396) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a cloudy copper / yellow with an off white head that laces well, but dissapates quickly. Decent nose of hops, and some malt. Flavors reflect the same. Good mouthfeel, and pretty nice.

Hop_Hedonist (323) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2014
Muted aroma and flavour - expected more of both - harmoniously well balanced - very smooth on the tongue so good quaffing ale - just a bit boring.

Pours dark orange/brown color with a nice head that gradually dissipated. Fresh hoppy aroma. Nice malty taste and crisp hoppy finish. A well balanced delicious beer.

mkel07 (4299) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Liquor Collection 261114. Pours a very deep orange colour with a scattering of foam across the top. The first thing that hits you is a burst of piney hop aromas. Big bodied bug not overly hoppy which I like in a beer.

backdaft (275) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Poura deep amber color. Medium off white head ends in thin film with nice rings of lacing. Aroma is pretty mild with hops and pine. Tastes of earthy hops & caramel malt sweetness. A nice amount of bitterness lingers. Medium body and carbonation. A pretty solid APA ... that seems to be an IPA.
