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.

Poured from the bottle a beautiful amber with an off-white head. The aroma is citrus and floral. Nice flavor, slight malty sweetness with a hoppiness that is very nice. This seems to be the little brother of the Hop Henge. Nice brew.

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.

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.

Had it on tap. Pours a deep copper clear hue with a thick white head (reminds me of Nipsy Russell). Light aroma with hints of citrus and it has a taste to match the smells, smooth, light , and not to bitter.

Niksko (567) - 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.

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

CacheManyHose (531) - 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.

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.

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. It’s alright!
