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.

Not bad. Aroma is straw, grass, citrus and some light caramel. Big fluffy head with sticky lacing. Bronze colored body. Flavor is similar with straw and hay notes, some citrus, bitter pine and orange peel, light malt.

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. Iíll rate this again if/when I get a fresher example

Cory (340) - , 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. Iím guessing this one was oxidized a little or something. An overall muted and off putting experience. Unfortunately itís 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.

Grassy flavor. I got this is in February so it was probably a little past peak consumption time. A little flat on flavor, not as hoppy as I would expect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastmaster (327) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Unfortunately I have to drink this from a solo cup so my appearance rating may be off. Bottle, heavy head pour. Drinking on feb 17 2013 (bottled on oct 4 2012) so I hope its still "fresh". Grassy and flat :(. Tastes like it would have been excellent if I got to it earlier. Citrus aroma. Medium body/medium bitter. Refreshing. Will try and rate again with a fresher bottle. Trying colorado fresh hop on site, ppir was orange pour lost its head quickly. Light hops, not as citrusy as expected. Brewed with colorado hops. 3.5

Very good fresh hop taste. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Better than most apa offerings.

Aroma is yeast, pine, tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of biscuit malts. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, mild to medium hop resin, malts and a long and heavy bitterness in the finish. Canít remember if Iíve had a wet hop APA as opposed to an IPA; either way this was great.
