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.

Maltser85 (229) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with an off white two finger head. The aroma started off very citrusy. Big orange and some nice grapefruit that rolls into more grapefruit and soft lemon with mild pine and some nice malty sweetness. A bit of dankness to this one. Mild carbonation that opens up with a bit more pine and some soft grapefruit. Rolls nicely into some caramel sweetness with some herbal notes and then back to a nice mild pine citrus finish. A delectable pale ale.

Draft at a sampling event. From notes. Citrus and pine domininate with a decent caramel malt backbone. Pretty good.

Light amber pour, full finger of off white head. Nose is malt and floral hops. Nicely bittersweet. Middle is sweet malt with pine cones peaking around the side. Finish tastes like hoppy caramel. Balanced and delicious

I don't mean to seem hyperbolic with my score, but this one is special to me. I grew up in the backwoods of Alabama. I spent a lot of time in the woods. For the sake of brevity, this smells and tastes like the woods of my youth. Heavy pine and floral aroma. Same on the palette with a nice caramel malty flavor, as well. Beautifully balanced. I absolutely LOVE this beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe. Amber and clear with a sticky white head and active carbonation. Fresh aroma of citrus hops, tropical fruit, pine, black pepper, toasted malts and crackers. Similar flavor with a medium body and a lingering finish. Tasty and refreshing, a nice pale ale.

Soft piney aroma greets you on the pour. Amber body with small silky beige head. Medium weight with mellow malt and bitter hop finish. Very smooth.
