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.

pour is a cloudy amber with a tint of orange, nice creamy egg-shell head, good lacing. smell is faint, somewhat hoppy, touch of citrus, and maybe a few roasted nuts thrown in, sorta creamy on the back-end. taste is malty, light grapefruit, tingy on the tip of the tongue, bitter in the end. nice brew.

22 oz. bottle 2007 from LS - Pours a clear amber color with a one and a quarter finger thick off white head. Nice, thick lacing. Aroma is herbal/vegtable hops. Flavor is light sweet esters with a pleasant hop bite. No lingering aftertaste. Medium body. A very nice PA.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle: Pours a murky orange-brown color with no head and minimal lacing. Strong peach and mango aroma with mild floral hop notes. Dry, tart citrus flavor that ends with minimal hops present. Decent.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle. Hazy amber, thin creamy head. Super floral and fruity with a strong peach aroma and notes of apple jolly rancher + CO2. This really tastes like a malty peach nectar. Light bodied and easy drinking. Low bitterness. Very nice, delicate ale.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2007
22oz from Liquid Solutions. Nice copper pour with a fairly lively head. It’s got a nice aroma, but not a face-puncher like some of the fresh hop brews. And in fact, it’s generally more modest and understated than I’d expected. Nicely floral, with a slightly dry finish and a light mouthfeel. Pleasant, but a slight disappointment.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Pours a nice coper color with full tan head. Beautiful beer. Nose is very hoppy with citrus and resin. Flavor is more sweet with caramel malt. Very little hop presence. Nice slight bitter finish. RERATE: after having this last night, bumped up two tenths ’cuz it was that good.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - NOV 20, 2007
22 oz bottle. Lots of hop character on the nose, malt backs up well though. Flavor is quite malty caramel with lots of citrus, pine hops. Nice balance, a good vehicle to showcase the possibilities of brewing with fresh hops, which certainly gives a different set of flavors than with dried. A good beer.

SDalkoholic (2213) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 18, 2007
22 oz bottle from South Bay Drugs. Had a perfume hop aroma with an added musk scent which I thought was peculiar. The appearance was an autumn orange that of a tree leaf but showed very tiny bubble carbonation. The drink was funky and had a perfume hop flavor the same as I found in the aroma. Not a memorable beer or worth trying again.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Delicious!!! This was an awesome beer. One of my favorite of the harvest style beers. Find it and drink it when it is fresh.
