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.

Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, not much of a hop presence. Taste is malty and peppery, not hoppy. This is fairly fresh and either the hops have faded quick or they were never there at all. Not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

medium body, copper-ish in color and slightly hazy; definitely taste the citrus, not as "grassy" as expected/advertised; this is a great beer when you want something in between a pale ale and an IPA in normal bitterness

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Just a good pale ale with a lot of hops.

It poured a deep amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was grassy, sweet, malty, some caramel, spice, pine and soap. The taste was similar to the aroma, very pleasant and awesome on the palate. It finished malty, grassy and a little bitter. Very good.

Bomber poured into snifter glass. Copper color with thin white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy, piney and bready malt. Taste hits with the fresh hop bitterness balanced with malt sweetness. More oily and resin then expected, coats the mouth. Light body overall and very drinkable. Nice bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.
