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.

Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle. This brew is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that has decent retention. Stringy lacing. Hops and fruit in the nose, with a touch of pine. Medium-bodied with a soft hops character. Floral and grassy notes as well, plus malt and spice in the background. The finish is moderately hoppy and lingering. Overall this is a tasty and refreshing APA.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2007
On tap at Hamiltons. Pours with a red body topped by a thin to medium thick off-white head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet hoppy and bitter with a nice fresh, green hoppiness full of subtle pine notes and a little grassiness. The aroma has a slight grainy note to it. Light to medium bodied, crisp and smooth.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle from Bottleoworks. Coppery orange, very little head. Killer aroma of big, fresh, floral hops. Floral and fruity, earthy and woodsy the aroma pretty much runs the gamut of hop aromas. Flavor is even better, with hop fresh hop flavors dominating. A little on the thin side, which I like in this type of beer. Dry, surprisingly clean finish. I really enjoyed this and wish I had more.

jrob21 (3433) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Bottle from Samurai Artist. This starts out like any great ipa with a clear copper color and a lasting white head. Grapefruit, straw, and a little bit o’ funk in the aroma. Flavor is hop forward with a bit of body and bitterness on the backside. I am a big fan of these beers right now so I’m a little biased. Even though it’s a bit one dimensional with the hops, it’s a fabulous dimension.

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.
