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.

Bottle - I was highly impressed with the deep orange pour, nice head and good lacing. Has a faint orange hop aroma and a dry hop taste. Thin mouthfeel. Good beer.

Fatehunter (2214) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a hazy medium straw colored body. The aroma has some tropical fruit: mango and pineapple, along with lemon and pine. Nice. The taste has a moderate bitterness throughout, with caramel sweetness layered in nicely. Great balance and profile. The texture is a little fizzy. Quite enjoyable.

Niksko (593) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a fine off white head. Nose is subdued but nice. I get some mango, grapefruit zest, a little dank caramel. Flavor is similarly restrained, but shows impeccable balance. I get some really juicy mango and guava flavors on the attack, followed by some lime and grapefruit on the mid palate, along with some candy orange. The finish is long and evolves. It starts bitter with a grapefruit peel flavor, but then mellows into a slightly toasty, slightly spicy biscuity flavor. The aroma though nice, isn’t really a smack in the face. However the flavor is really wonderful, nuanced, balanced and complex. Slightly syrupy body which I wouldn’t have expected for a 5.5% beer. Really worth drinking.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep golden with a firm white head. Nose has grapefruit and mango with some zest as well. Taste is zesty grapefruit and that flows. Hint of toffee sweetness. Pretty balanced. Pretty decent pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty solid all rounder this. Nothing extraordinary but it goes down easy. Nice fresh citrus and juicy sweet fruit focus throughout. Nice stuff

Decent pale ale. Golden orange with foamy, semi-creamy head. Citrus hops with offsetting malt backbone.

A winner for me. Full of hops just the way I like it. Great aroma. Full body but not too heavy. A good session beer.

Been drinking this a few years, as it comes around, but neverr reviewed. New label & colors don’t quite work for me. Swampy smell, but not offensively so, green, caramel, a perkiness. In flavor, there’s a bitter shimmer around the edge and within the malt & green-ness hang there, mildly vegetative.
