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.

22oz. A disappointment from Deschutes. Pale gold body, thin head. Bland body with not much happening. faint malt aroma. Not too bad,but not good either.

Sweet floral and bready aroma. Pours somewhat opaque with a thick white head. Love the flavor, very well balanced with sweetness and bitterness in equal measure.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with light fluffy off-white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney and citrusy hops. Flavor is malty up front and hoppy in the finish. Pretty light and refreshing. Good, but not super complex.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange amber color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is full of fresh hops, grapefruit, citrus, caramel malt, and cookie malt. It smells like a fresh hop pale ale should. Flavor is mostly fresh hops with a nice sweet citrus taste coming in afterwards. The beer also has a nice sweet malt profile with caramel mostly coming in. Not much of a bitterness except at the very beginning which is pretty mild. A nice refreshing American Pale Ale. Doesnít come with as much of a bite as a typical IPA does.

Was first expecting like a light pale. Came out with an amber color smooth overall beer with a Carmel taste. Great beer

Pours an orange color with a slight hop smell to it. Has a citrus hop taste that follows with a slight bitterness. Itís like a light IPA.

Muted aroma and flavour - expected more of both - harmoniously well balanced - very smooth on the tongue so good quaffing ale - just a bit boring.

12.28.14 best by. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 11.15.14. A: Candied strawberry with a little green vegetable. Very juicy smelling. A: 1/2 finger head. See through light amber body. T: Strawberry and orange dominate. Green vegetable, slight pine, honey malt, and some funk are subtle. P: It feels flat even though there are bubbles on the back end. Itís a bit watery also. O: This was disappointingly too subtle for a fresh hop ale. It was a rare miss from Deschutes.

Pours an amber color, frothy white head. Aroma is sweet malts and grassy hops. Taste is the same, surprisingly very sweet! Great brew, not surprising from Deschutes.

HOPPY. Very hoppy. Tons of just delicious fresh citrusy bright hopes. Incredible. Is it a Pale Ale or an IPA? Doesnít even matter here. Itís just a brilliantly hoppy beer. The hops are all that matters and they are just in your face. The taste is just juicy citrusy fresh hops. Exactly what they say it is. Definitely my favorite among these fresh hop beers that come out around this time. Definitely try this one. Cheers!
