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.

A fresh bottle of this is just great stuff. Some slight grassiness on the nose from the fresh hops, but that’s forgivable, ’cause there’s also a whole lot of fresh citrus hops coming through too. The hops are really nicely balanced in the mouth with a great grapefruit flavour and sweet malty flavour present in moderation. Eminently drinkable!

A little lacking. Very mild hop aroma. Decent color and weight. Hop flavors were there and lingered toward the citrus side but a little harsh and unbalanced. There are better fresh pale ales out there.

This is a brew I could love all day n night. Super citrus pine aroma. Medium bitterness but oh so quaffable. Muffin like malts and very light toffee. Hop bitterness and finish make this beer fantastic.

Pours a hazy copper with a large frothy white head. Hoppy aroma of fruity, floral and grassy with caramel malt and some bread and toffee notes. Taste is similar. Medium body.

cheap (4568) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2015
From a bottle, this stuff has a volatile metallic aroma. Cloudy lighter iced tea look about it. Surprisingly has pretty good co2, got to hand it to ya. First taste tho is that big large kick in the palate. Bitter waxy mouth coating resin fer sure. Good example of a DIPA. Wrenchingly on style, wew. YIP YIP. Reverse numbers if you like this style.

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.

Davros (2323) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows soft citrus and pine along with rich caramel and sweet malt. More sweet malt as a flavour, with a little spicy and piny hops behind.

snoworsummer (3237) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours hazy copper with a foamy off white head. Tastes like sweet biscuit and toasted malt, resin, caramel, woody, and citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like fresh hops, malty, citrusy.

355mL bottle from Beer Cartel Brewed Oct 2014 Pours an attractive pale copper body with a good sized, dense rocky hit sitting atop. Aroma is rather nice; leafy, resiny hops, bit of citrus rind, stonefruit & melon to it, nice underlying biscuity malt. Palate is smooth, good weight, soft carbonation. Good biscuity/toasty malt backbone plays host to a generous measure of woody, resiny, bitter citrus hops. Reasonably strong bitterness lingers on a lengthy finish. Rather tasty, rather drinkable!
