COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap sample. Clear copper color with a small head. Fruity hop aroma with earthy notes, caramel malt and marshmallow. Juicy hop flavor, some funky earthy mushrooms, pine, baked apples and sweet malt. Medium bodied, long bitter finish - nice.

Kroney (154) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bomber bottled on 10/5, consumed 3/29. Would love to try one fresh. Aroma was grass, lemon, grapefruit and bread. Flavor was very similar but completely muted because of the age. Almost no carbonation. I’ll rate this again if/when I get a fresher example

Cory (312) - , California, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of light hops and cardboard, taste is bread like and mildly bitter. There is a sour rough feeling across the palate. The appearance was an amber color that left oil on the glass. I’m guessing this one was oxidized a little or something. An overall muted and off putting experience. Unfortunately it’s the only one I have.

Bottle bought at Dade City Brass Tap, pours a golden color with aromas of tropical fruit, pine, hops, and some citrus. Flavors follow the aroma with some light caramel backbone.

Very good hop aroma and taste apparently because they use wet hops. Great pale ale. Had a bomber with Vince while at Cloudland Canyon Grill.
