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.

Subtle citrus and bitterness that finishes clean. Very filling. A new favorite of mine.

Serving glass: Poured from bomber into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Clear orangish-amber with nice off-white head and great lacing. Aroma: Sweet, fragrant orange, with touches of grapefruit, pine and toasted malts. Taste: Great mix of tangerine-like orange, grapefruit, toasted malt and some spiciness. The orange seems to intensify into the finish when pine and some bitterness come into play as well. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body that is very oily and smooth. Nice dry finish. Overall: This is a very fresh beer that I really could continuously drink all day - too bad I only have the single bomber. Other Wet Hop Ales I have had have been more IPA-like, but since this is more akin to an APA, this is probably the best APA I have ever had. Just fantastic.

Had on tap at brew pub in Bend. Not super clear, reddish orange. Some aftertaste, but takes a while & it’s not strong/biting.

I wish I could rate beers like some of uou folks, but it does not come easily to me. This beer is unreal if you like hopped-up ales. Thanks to Piscator for sharing the sample with me.

Reviewed on: 11-12-2006 Serving type: bottle When I opened this bottle I was surprised that I got such a beautiful smell of fresh hops. Nice lacing and a nice orange-amber color. The first taste reminds me of hops, grass and peaches. The mouthfeel is thick and pleasant. I preferred this over Great Divide Fresh Hop by far. The low ABV adds to the drinkability.My first thought was to go back to the store and buy the remaining bottles, so I did. This is one of the best Pale Ales I’ve had in a long time. At 3.49 for a 220z. it was a really good deal. If you get the chance, try this one!

Dry n crisp. Hop flavor grows during the sip minimal bitterness great flavor. Great red color. A great brewery doing a fresh hop is a recipe for success.

A nice hoppy aroma. This is good stuff. Hoppy and bitter, but not lasting, so it stays more like a pale ale than an IPA. Great stuff.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 22 ounce bottle in pint glass. Orange copper with lasting head and full lace. Fresh citrus and earthy hop aroma. Fruity malt sweetness with mild toast and fresh hop flavor floral and citrus and fresh pine. Medium body and carbo. Awesome fresh soft mouth feel. Great complexity and flavor in a sessionable strength. Excellent.

An excellent fresh hop. With the amount of pepper in the nose and on the tongue, its seems almost like a rye. Pale golden and hazy appearance with a fast disappearing head. Medium bodied with some caramel, bread, citrus and more spice. Got this one from Nick in 2012.
