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.

Pours Amber. Aroma is muddled sweet candy and pears. Taste is quite different , malt in front with some lemon and goes to a faint citrus. Nice meld with the hops. Enjoyable to drink and easy to drink too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maltser85 (292) - 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.
