Aroma- Really great hoppy aroma, Grass and pine really stick out.
Appearance- Pale Golden color with lots of head.
Taste- Mild bitterness not a lot lot of strong flavor at all, just a very drinkable beer.
Palate- I’d say light to medium bodied, and very refreshing.
Overall- A very good beer the taste isn’t as big as the nose which was a little disappointing but if you take it for what it is, a refreshing hoppy pale ale, it’s a damn good beer.

Pretty sturdy malt backbone makes a great canvas for the soft, melon and pear brought by the fresh hops. Really well balanced stuff.

Incredible pour, very rarely do you get this much flavor from a pale ale, must be one of the best I have had, and the hops are awesome!

Pours a fairly clear golden copper with a thick khaki head that settles to a larger bubbled ring of foam and leaves plenty of clingy, intricate lace. Nose involves a fresh hop bouquet of floral notes, pine, some spice, some tropical fruit, all with a lighter honey malt backdrop. Fairly sweet, quite bitter. Fair action, oily, creamy, medium bodied, with a long green hop bitter finish. A nice fresh hop pale, lots to showcase, and very drinkable.

On tap @ Great Divide. Orange pour with a white head. Lots of pine, orange, and floral hop notes. Sweet dough and biscuit malt. Flavor is orange, pine, and floral hops. Decent citrus character, sweet dough, and some biscuit. A moderate bitterness on the finish.

Tap @ FreshCraft, Denver. Pours a clear golden beer with medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is fresh hops obviously, light citrus, grassy and hay, some lemon in there as well. Flavour is bitter, hoppy with a watery aftertaste. Flavour starts off very nice though, but falls into a watery finish. Decent brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer poured great with a nice mildly hazy golden straw color, a nice foamy white head and great lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a light malt, citrus hoppiness, and corn blended together nicely. The taste is outstanding with a solid mildly bitter orange citrus hoppiness and a subtle malty finish, somewhat bready and yeasty. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is well carbonated, medium bodied, and leaves you somewhat dry but doesn’t burn you out. Overall, Fresh Hop...need I say more.
