Brewing with fresh hops is a big endeavor, requiring four to five times the hop volume compared to using pelletized hops. Although the process is complex, it brings impressive results: Fresh Hop is an American-style pale ale with moderate hop bitterness marked by a unique and intensely grassy hop flavor and aroma. Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Thin, reedy grapefruit monstering around as a nicely colored but anorexic beer one might find anywhere. Have I said anything about the body and the flavor? Thin and acidic, but not in a good way. Not infected, just one dimensional! I usually like this dimension too.

Pours with a storm of carbonation. US caramel malt, smooth resinous hops and herbal/vegetative aromas. Craggy firm head. Huge hop flavor that is with citrus and pine. Good malt skeleton with just the perfect amount of sweetness. Clean bitterness and a lingering hop flavor. Very delicately balanced and quite refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 2006 version much better than 2005. Huge, grassy, resiny hop aroma and flavor. An excellent beer.

Sturdy copper beer. Floating, sponge for a head. Rocky. Fantastic. Fruity malt aromas abound. Slightly sticky. No cardboard. Hops strike quickly and are devastating. Thick floral presence. A juggernaut of aromatics this one is. Sweet atfirst on the palate with a distinct biscuity center. Flowers bloom on the edges and then rip into a bitterness on the far edges of the palate into the finish where the adjunct bitter resin sticks for a LONG time. Excellent beer. Nice in the mouth...perhaps a tad too carbonated but that’s really just being nitpicky.

Pours a clear ruby red with a decent head and average lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of fruit. Flavor is dominated by grapefruity hops with a healthy backdrop of malt. A very nice APA.

The taste of mother nature at its finest. FRESH HOPS! Almost like drinking grass. Smooth with earthy freshness dangling to the end. Light in flavor and aroma.

Bottle. Clear brown-amber body. BIG aroma - a spicy hop combo of resinous green vines, grape skins and unsweet orange flesh. The falvor is a nice suprise - well-emphasized lightly roasted brown-to-caramel backing with the same green, resinous bitter hops on top. A differently-hopped pale, it’s nice to have something other than grapefruit hops in an APA

Wow. There should really be a category called double American pale ale. This has a great hop flavor. Fresh citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Also is superbly balanced with a light malt backbone. The best pale ale I have ever enjoyed
