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.

Decent pale ale. Nothing to rant and rave about, but very drinkable. Light hop bite....wish there was a bit more. Overall, solid offering, but remember that this is not an IPA, so don’t expect a hop slap on your hop trip.

On tap @ Hamiltons and in bomber up in Nevada City. Super fresh tasting. Pretty hoppy but not overboard. Delicious and easy the best I’ve had from Deschutes.

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.

Pours a dark amber in color with a nice quarter inch head. Smell is mostly malts with some piney hops to go with it. Taste is much the same with a nice hop kick in finish. This strikes me more as a subtly hopped red than anything else. Different, but I like it. Decent mouthfeel. I still think there are not enough hops to balance all the malt that was used. Good beer overall.

Draft in CdA Idaho. Nothing really wrong with this, it’s just a pretty bland, run of the mill, slightly boring brew. Not that I expected anything more. Light, bready, clean taste with just a touch of hops, which do nothing but compliment the heavy barley malted backbone. Drinkability is its best quality....this is a very clean crisp brew that could compliment the right occasion, however I usually prefer something bolder.

Niksko (601) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a fine off white head. Nose is subdued but nice. I get some mango, grapefruit zest, a little dank caramel. Flavor is similarly restrained, but shows impeccable balance. I get some really juicy mango and guava flavors on the attack, followed by some lime and grapefruit on the mid palate, along with some candy orange. The finish is long and evolves. It starts bitter with a grapefruit peel flavor, but then mellows into a slightly toasty, slightly spicy biscuity flavor. The aroma though nice, isn’t really a smack in the face. However the flavor is really wonderful, nuanced, balanced and complex. Slightly syrupy body which I wouldn’t have expected for a 5.5% beer. Really worth drinking.

CacheManyHose (600) - HONG KONG - JAN 19, 2016
Bought by Matt back from Malaysia. Amber-brown cloudy pour. White sudsy head with huge bubbles. Smells of crystalline malt, floral dusty hop. Slightly sweet and slightly dusty. Taste is moderately bitter, resin, faint pepper, lightly sweet malty finish. Body is medium, quite slick, smooth, long, moderate bitterness, lemony finish. Plenty of malt and decent amount of hop for a pale ale.

This poured a light copper in color with a nose of fresh herbal hops and light citrus. In the mouth it was medium-bodied with a bit of carmal malt richness to balance the wealth of hops.

A dark, almost ruby golden color with half finger off white head. Smells of fresh cut grass, honey biscuit, tea. Taste is light on the grassy hops, small bit of sweetness, ends with a light cracker taste and small amount of bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a light amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a slight floral, citrus & some caramel scents to it. The taste has a nice bitter upfront taste with a medium bitter finish. A nice clean taste to it. Overall a very good Pale Ale.
