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.

Overall a great beer. I love the hop mythos of the field to kettle in 4 hours. It makes a good (true) story. Aroma is sweet with notes of pine and citrus. Front of the pallete is tangy with great hop character. After taste is slightly astringent with fruit characteristics.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - NOV 21, 2008
From a 22oz bottle purchased locally. Aroma is full of hops, resinous citrus and pine. A clear amber with a small off white head. Flavor is hop dominated but not overpowering with more orange, lemon and pine followed by toasty malt in the background. Not overly bitter. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Very drinkable. I’d have a couple of this one. A very balanced, not over the top, fresh hop ale.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2006
Bomber - recommended by three separate dudes in the liquor store - so i was expecting this to be decent. Pours a lovely amber with slight haze. Great lacing all the way down. This beer has a stonking fresh hop aroma - Piney, with touches of sweat and smoke, and some yeasty marmite notes. Flavour is initially sweet with a great lasting hoppy tang which lingers. medium mouthfeel. Good shit Deschutes - the guys in the liquor store were right!

Hop Trip of floral in aroma; has a light amber color; less bitter than other pale ales, tastes more floral as well. My favorite part is the hoppy aftertaste giving this beer the high rating it deserves.

Crash_the_dog (141) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
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

Dr_MedievAle (133) - Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Aroma: grassy hops, tropical fruit, yeasty pizza crust. Appearance: reddish gold body with a very foamy white head. Two fingers of head on this one. Decent carbo bubble action. Taste: Spicy/earthy and bitter flavors battle it out. Little sweetness there somewhere. Finishes hard and bitter. Palate: dry and crisp. Oily mouth feel. Good shit, for the most part. Flavors aren’t too pronounced or associable with any particular foodstuffs, but still a delicious IPA.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Slightly hazy dark orange pour with long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is mostly floral and citrus hops with some bready maltiness present as well. Taste is citrus hops with some fruitiness and bready malts. Mouthfeel is just a tad oily throughout. Overall, a fairly tasty and easy-drinking APA.
