Straw in color with a subtle citrus aroma, Flying Dog’s limited-edition Fresh Hop Ale has a solid malt backbone that balances perfectly with intense hop bitterness. The fresh Cascade hops used were grown a mere 20 miles away from the brewery and used within 12 hours of the harvest. With a nice, clean finish, it’s the perfect beer to sip after a long day working on the farm (or a long day dreaming about owning one).

Draft. Sampled at MN Autumn Brew Review. Poured a clear amber golden color with a slight white head. The nose was surprisingly non existant to be honest. Only a slight hop presence. The taste was more like a very subdued pale ale in that I expected a strong hop presence but there is none. The taste is just slightly sweet up front with a tiny little hop bite. Where’s the hops?! I had my sample but was not going back for another round of this one. Medium/light mouthfeel.

Travlr (17644) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Draft at Mahaffey’s, shared with steptin. Golden color, thick white head. Aroma of wet grass and citrus. Taste has bright lemon lime and grass. Refreshing, straightforward and mellow.

Holy (835) - GERMANY - SEP 5, 2010
Shared with Travlr in Mahaffey’s. On tap. Golden color with thin-to-no head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Nice easy citrus and hops in the nose. Smells fresh. The taste is more ofthe same with added bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue. A mild alcohol flavor finds it’s way into the aftertaste.
