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.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Golden color. The aroma is hoppy, very nice, fruity (apricots and grapefruit) and resiny. The hops are lovely, the body is quite thin. Of course the end is extremely long and bitter (resins, hazelnuts).

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Pours a hazy golden orange with just a slight ring of foam. Wonderful citric grapefruit aroma, literally smells like I just cut open a piece of fresh fruit. Great hop profile! Body is kind of light, with that amazing hoppiness following through but the malt profile is really light, still well balanced and over the top which is exactly what I expect from a fresh hop style pale ale.

tennisjoel (1154) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Classic floral aroma. Amber body with 1 finger head. Good lacing. Decent amount of hops for the style. Toasty nutty flavor on the finish which I am not super fond of. Okay but no where near my favorite in this style. This is the first of the Great Divide beers I’ve had which wasn’t great.

Pailhead (4413) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle: Aroma of caramel, fruit, and citrus hops. Pours a transparent amber with a big creamy off-white head with very good retention. Great lacing. Sweet caramel and and light fruitiness up front. Finishes with a decent grapefruit hoppiness for balance. An above average APA.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bomber. Cushy off white head sitting on a medium amber beer. Strong aroma of, duh, fresh hops along with some toasty malt, a bit of fruit as well. Flavor is quite bitter, starts out pretty malty but there is quite a kick at the end from the hops. I’m surprised this has only 55 IBUs with the kick in the pants you get. Medium bodied. Pretty dry. Nice beer, nothing all that special though.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Hazy copper color with a thin head. Strong aroma of citrus, especially orange and grapefruit. Some grasses too. Just a bone dry, suck-the-moisture-from-my-mouth blast of hops right up front. Citrusy overtones with a fairly good balance of malt. That’s a damn tasty pale ale!
