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.

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.

My first "fresh hopped" beer. Not a hop fanatic but tis the season. Good as far as APAs go. Nothing mind-blowing.

Amber with tall foamy head. Fresh grassy-floral hop aroma. Taste- caramel bready malts with delicate floral hops. Also some lemon and pine resin. Rather mellow IPA, moderately bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (13879) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Hazy orangey-amber colour. The aroma is woody, orangey (mandarins) with a minty, almost bubblegummy sweetness. Those orangey hop notes continue in the palate. Fresh, maybe a bit green, with hints of pine. Malt balance is soft, slightly juicy and very even. Clean, hoppy finish. Fairly full body for the style. Civilized APA, very refined, elegant.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a nice off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with sweet malt. Very dtrong hop aroma. Sweet malt and citrus flavor, but not enough to match the aroma. Lighter bodied than expected. Low bitterness, but some hop flavor.

On tap at the Latona Pub in Seattle. Pours an orangery ambery hue with golden tints to it when light touches the brew. A good sized, leaning towards foamy off white head sites atop the beer. The aroma has a citrusy hop note combined with a bit of grapefruits. The flavor has a very straight forward hit on the bitter hops when first touching the palate. This moves gently into a nicely balanced piney hop note with a sweeter malt backing to it. You can definitely taste the fresh hop near the finish. Overall, enjoyable, nothing out of the ordinary though. Decent pale.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget on Covell Blvd in Davis, CA. Sampled after Reaper Deathly Pale Ale. Nose is rather estery with some banana notes along with some ethanol presence as well. SLight sweet nose, but lots of booze. Aroma is somewhat disappointing from this brewer. Transparent oragey-copper body with a small off-white head and below-average lacing. Tingly, carbonated start, which turns rather grainy with lots of malts present. Lots of cereal and biscuity, and grainy malts in the middle. Light caramel. Finishes less hoppy than the Reaper Deathly Pale. FInishing hops are a bit floral, sweet, and citric. This is quite drinkable and rather flavorful and balanced. Too bad the aroma is mediocre.
