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.

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.

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

boamr (309) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours an orange color with a slight hop smell to it. Has a citrus hop taste that follows with a slight bitterness. It’s like a light IPA.

Hop_Hedonist (291) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2014
Muted aroma and flavour - expected more of both - harmoniously well balanced - very smooth on the tongue so good quaffing ale - just a bit boring.

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.

Pours a clear amber light Brown with soapy soft head. Aroma is citrucy some light caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma with a light barnyard funk to the hop bill. Wet medium mouth feel. That makes you want to slam it.

AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - MAY 30, 2007
Holy cow! I might have a new favorit beer here. Pours a great copper color with a decent graham cracker color head that leaves nice lacing; clear with decent carbonation. Aroma of that great deschutes ice tea smell and carmeled ginger, honey, etc. Flavors are awesome with decent, very fresh bitterness, light citrus, a bit of pine, fairly sweet, but not cloying since it is so nicely balanced. Extremely easy drinking, extremely nicely balanced and a great example of the style. Bravo!

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2011
All that a fresh hop pale ale should be. Pours a beautiful hickory color with a thin white head. Subtle citrus and resin on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium bodied strong toasty malt, thin and refreshing on the finish. Throughout a subtle and varied hop component is wet, spicy, and rich with lime and grass. A fantastic beer.

Pine malt and hay aroma. Light amber in color with a pillowy off white tan head. Pine and light mint start with a mellow cream finish. Very tasty.
