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.

I really like this pale. It’s 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.

Bottle. Pours a rusty amber with a sticky beige head. Aroma gives you malt sweetness plus a nice blast of the piney citrus you want from a fresh hop. Taste is a bit on the sweet side but showcases the hops quite well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a long finish. Very good for a 5.4% shelfie, at $10 a sixer I am quite pleased with this.

EyeAmBaldman (460) - Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is slightly metallic with hints of malt and bitter hops. Leaves good lacing in the glass. Medium carbonation in the mouth with notes of malt, caramel and earthiness. Has a fair amount of hoppy bitterness on the back end. This is a pretty good APA.

Bottle from a friend. Copper color, with white head. Malt and fresh hops on the nose. Taste caramel malt and fresh grassy hops. Well balanced, and classic.

burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Not really the level of hop I was expecting. However, the beer is very clean and crisp and that I do appreciate! The hop profile in this is short and sweet, very little bitter.

This hop story is a bit hopped up. Not much on the nose, pours out true-to-style PA color, palate is smooth, malty, refreshing finish, but not for hop heads to push each out of the way to drink.

Bottle. Pours hazy brownish gold, with thick head. Aroma of citrus, candy. Flavor is sharp pleasing hoppiness, sugary finish. Dry mouthfeel. Really good, sessionable beer.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Hmm. Im editing this. Something strange is going on. Tasting this beer again a couple weeks later and its totally different. Thinks my palate is jacked.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Slightly sweet florals and orange citrus dominate the aroma and palate... Pretty, perfumed florals of fresh roses and such.. Hints of sweet, ripe citrus and orange remain in the background.. A slight touch of floral bitterness in the finish.. Overall, fresh, mildly sweet citrus and perfumed florals dominate this years beer.. Medium-light bodied... Average finish.. Friendly.. Simply ok. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
