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.

Fresh bottle poured into a pub glass. The beer is a mostly clear burnt orange amber with a fingers worth of white head that shrinks down and leaves ok lacing. Aroma is candied tropical fruits. Lots of tropical and citrus fruit but there is also a sweet, sugar like smell. It reminds me of pixie sticks. It’s also slightly musty near the end. First sip is very juicy with the same citrus/tropical theme and a lot do pine. It’s a little bready but kind of like stale hard bread. Mouthfeel is quenching and refreshing. Overall a good fresh hop 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.

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...

Pours a hazy honey color with a substantial head. Lacing is pedestrian. This is a tricky ale to rate - the hops are subdued but blend very nicely with the malt. The low alcohol content also serves to keep this in balance. Silky mouthfeel. Aftertaste is dusty - but in a good way.

Beautiful clear reddish amber color with a decent sized ivory colored head. Piney hop nose. Soft and easy to drink with a gentle touch of sweet caramel that’s nicely balanced by piney hop flavors. The hops aren’t as mighty as I expected but still a quality nicely balanced beer.

22oz bottle (thanks to kyzr) poured a hazy dark copper color with a small off white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops with a rich malt backing. The flavor had a strong bitterness that was unexpected. The finish had a strong, almost musty hop profile from the use of the fresh hops.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a cloudy copper / yellow with an off white head that laces well, but dissapates quickly. Decent nose of hops, and some malt. Flavors reflect the same. Good mouthfeel, and pretty nice.
