COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop Ale is made from select organic hops grown in the famous Cowiche Canyon of the Yakima Valley. Fresh Hop ales are brewed with hops harvested and placed in our kettle within 24 hours. We use only fresh hops throughout this beer for a unique, once-a-year beer. We brew Cowiche Canyon ale in partnership with legendary hop-growing wizards from the Yakima Valley in a joint effort to launch a large-scale organic hop industry in Washington StateÖBecause Organic Hops Matter. A portion of all sales goes toward the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy.

22 oz. bottle shared by WillRunForBeer. Pours a clear golden color with a one finger white head. Good retention and lace. Lush tropical fruit aroma. You can practically hear the parrots and macaws singing in the background. Flavor is to the sweet side with an almost honey like flavor superimposed over the aforementioned tropical fruit. Medium to full bodied. Very nice.

Can thanks to mystery box trade with prufrockstar! Pours a chill hazed golden orange with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma is big resinous green hops, citrus, pine, floral, all the good stuff. Taste follows, I imagine simcoe this year based on availability, slightly catty, but very nice. Moderate carbonation, easy sipper, very nice.

24/X/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can @ home - canned: IX/30/14 (2014-1243) Thanks to Kai and Alana for the can!

Clear deep blond to orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, citrus, passion fruit, bit piny, some oranges, some almonds. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, bit sour. Aftertaste: bit sweet, fruity, passion fruit, mango, citrus, bitter hops, bit grassy, soft caramel sweetness. Lovely beer. Drank the other can as well.

12 oz can, thanks brenn79. Aroma is grapefruity, piney, SweeTarts, bready. Pours nearly clear deep gold with a thick off-white pillowy head that laces the glass nicely after it recedes. Taste is as impressive as the aroma. Itís bittersweet, but not too sweet or bitter--it hits that perfect balance that I love in the best IPAs, from Pliny to the new Bale Breaker Citra Slicker. Not sure why this is considered an APA on here. Carbonation is fairly soft, body medium. Excellent.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 12 oz can, PDT 9-30-14, about 5 weeks ago- Pours hazy golden with a dense creamy head. Aroma is fresh hops actually, spicy, piney, resinous, nice light mango and grapefruit, definitely all about the hops. The taste is very resinous, piney, intense hop profile, mango and grapefruit, the bitterness is mostly in the finish, long lingering bitter bite. Very good, seems bigger than 6%, tastes more like a DIPA. One minor complaint about the description, 70 IBUís, pale ale, I donít think so. This definitely an IPA, not sure where the cutoff is, but itís definitely lower than 70!

Glowing orange body, medium to large white head and soapy lacing. Tropical fruits including some passionfruit, nice grapefruit and citrus, some pine, and herbal tea. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation, lively bitterness and a clean, semi-dry finish.

Can from Prufrock, who always seems to be on top on the Fremont Brewing rotation.

Relatively light pour, light tan head. Spicy new-school nose, befitting of the Simcoe and Citra that this one is made from. Bit of sour citrus, bit of citra polecat, but so sign of the garlic-and-onion that mars so many newfangled pale ales. Malts are way in the background, and the hops, which packing a big aroma, are at pale ale levels making this an extremely drinkable beer with none of the lingering bitterness on the mouth long after finishing a comparable IPA. Super tasty, good-drinking stuff, just as Iíve come to expect from Fremont.

Can: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, light dank notes, grass, and light herbal notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin ring outlined by a thick soapy ring. It leaves behind a thin sheet of soapy webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and faint tropical fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, light dank notes, hints of lemon, and some faint herbal notes. Itís light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this tastes more like a Session IPA than it does an APA.

Bottle thanks to michaelinwa. Hazy copper pour with a big frothy head that fades very slowly and leaves great lacing. Aromas are fresh cut grass, flowers, orange peel, and light pine. Tastes mostly like fresh grass. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Finish brings in the flowers and pine. Medium body. Slight overcarbonation. Dry finish. Solid APA.
