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.

Charlie's redondo beach in tap. Pours nice, foamy head, stays with it. Dark golden color, caramel. Not much to aroma, a bit of pine. Easy drinking, nice on the palate. A good but not great beer. Would order it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Orange-brown with a nice white head. Underwhelming aroma and flavor. You get some fresh hop action here but not a ton. Seems a bit reserved. What’s there is nice, but I want more of it. Enjoyable but not memorable.

Pours a hazy gold copper color with a nice head. Smells of hops, pine, grass, orange and grapefruit. Tastes of piney hops, grass, citrus and grapefruit not overly bitter and balanced out by a toffee malt flavor. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Tap at Pizza Luce. Orange with thick white lacing trailing. Grassy, lemony hops and light malts. Taste is bitter, but reserved. Medium to lighter body. Good pale ale, hoppiness less than expected though.

Pours a medium orange-amber with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, sweet malts, and caramel. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a very nice APA.

650 ml bottle from Picadilly. Best by 12-29-13. Pours a translucent copper color with a medium white head that has ample sticky lacing and fair retention. The aroma is somewhat mild with musty citrus and chlorophyll . The taste, unlike the nose, is very robust with grapefruit, grass, melons and limes. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Overall: Loved it, but at 8.99 per bottle I consider it a poor value for the money. Surely there must be a way to get fresh hop ales to my table without gouging my wallet.
