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.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a one finger thick light orange and creamy head. Fresh peachy hops aroma with a light wood note. Mild woody flavour with a mild peach hops note on top. Vague malt base which doesn’t show any sweetness that can be sensed as such, a rather dry and hoppy brew. Ends quite dry and with a light persisting pinewood note.

Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a nice beige head. The aroma is sweet and extremely hoppy giving it notes of citrus and pine. The flavor is sweet and dominated by hops and grass, but also with notes of wood. The mouthfeel is very dry, and it has an OK bitterness.

fiulijn (14403) - 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).
