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.

fiulijn (14397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver; 5.4% ABV
Hazy amber color, with medium sized head. Very nice aroma of malt and hops; the hops are creamy, a bit fruity, delicately resiny. Some toffee too. Solid malt and caramel backbone, with toffee character, and a bold hopping, very resiny and with accent of fresh yellow fruits. Long final.
Another great beer from Deschutes.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Hazy orangey-amber colour. The aroma is woody, orangey (mandarins) with a minty, almost bubblegummy sweetness. Those orangey hop notes continue in the palate. Fresh, maybe a bit green, with hints of pine. Malt balance is soft, slightly juicy and very even. Clean, hoppy finish. Fairly full body for the style. Civilized APA, very refined, elegant.

Travlr (11305) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. I like Deshutes a lot, but I wasn’t a big fan of this one. Not much aroma, and the flavor was a bit of citrus with an oily mouthfeel.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2009
22oz bottle-pours a rich to rocky light tan head that laces and hazy amber/copper color. Aroma is citrus-grapefruit/tangerine, pine, secondary medium malt-caramel. Taste is citrus-grapefruit/tangerine, pine, some sweet herbal, secondary medium malt-caramel. Nothing outrageous and outside the box, just outrageous inside the box good. Very drinkable. OK/mild carbonation. Thanks to skourtis & piclee & bitterbill for trades with jwc215 and me.

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Aroma of flowers. Beautiful coppery color with a white head that laces a slight bit. A light version of Lagunitas Lucky #13? Starts with full mouthfeel, floral and citrus flavors/aromas. This is not super hoppy, it’s just hard to find malty sweetness. Good stuff. Really. Beautiful appearance, wonderful flavors.
