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.

Sixer from anthem az hops and tannins. Pours and rates as advertised. Piney citrus floral. Fresh excellent hops. One of the best apa's ever made. Some slight dryness. Strong nice bitters for 5.5 abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a dark copper color with a patchy lasting head to it. Mostly hops on the aroma. A lot of bitter hop flavor, with an equal amount of sweet malt character. I donít know, I guess I was pretty bored with this beer. Nice hop flavor, but overall I wasnít too impressed with this one. Maybe my expectation was high. I still enjoyed it.

Bottle from whole foods. Pours clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma makes me think falconer flight hops. A bit earthy, a bit sweet, a bit resinous. The taste has a light bitterness, sweet grapefruit, a bit of orange.

I really like this pale. Itís easy to drink and the hop character for both the aroma and taste are nice. The aroma is a little subtle but you can tell there is a nice combination of hops and malt. Taste is great with plenty of sweet faintly caramel malts that is accented by a citrusy--but balanced hop note. Finish is nice and refreshing. I like a little more aroma in my beers but this is really good all around.

Hazy orange with a 1 finger foamy head, mild carbonation and good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, grassiness, lemon zest and toffee. Flavor of piney & citrus hops, lemon zest, toffee and a resiny aftertaste. Heavy body and heavy carbonation. Itís alright!

A hazy red-orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is piney hops and citrus. The flavor is citrus, pine, and a good amount of sweet maltiness.

12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy copper with orange hues. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine. Flavor of pine, citrus, resin, hay. A hoppy APA that skews to the piney, bitter hops side.

Nice amber color when poured from a bottle into a spiegelau IPA glass. Thick persistent head with rich lacing. Nose is hoppy but not overly so. Flavor has very clear citrus notes with a slight pine. Very nice all in all, but unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
