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.

Great grassy fresh hop aroma. Moderate bitterness. Perfect balance of maltiness and hoppyness to create a dangerously drinkable beer.

22 oz bomber. Pours deep gold. Aroma is caramel and bready, with citrus and floral notes. I taste sweet caramel malts and bitter resinous hops. Mouthfeel is a bit thick and sticky.

Pours a clear orange with white, fluffy head. Aroma is not really in your face, but you do get some of that hoppy, grassy, citrousy smell. Taste is really clean and fresh, grassy again but well balanced. Palate is very smooth, nicely carbonated. I really enjoyed this beer.

Pours a light tea colour with pleasant frothy head. Nose is bright and herbaceous, with hints of fruit. Taste is complex with melon rind, white pepper, thyme, hints of mint, bitter grass, and a nice oily, creamy malt palate. Great!

Davetopay (53) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2009
This is nice. The nose gives the impression that it will be big and bitter, but no, it is gentle, fruity, subtle and refreshing. Other examples have a lingering bitter bite, which when not backed up with enough malt can be off putting. This beer is all about balance.

Excellent Pale ale, although I would put at the IPA end of the pale ale range. Crisp and very hoppy. Reminds me of SNCA

Pours a cloudy amber, long lasting head, but not much lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, floral notes. Pronounced bitterness that comes on half way through the taste, but mellows by the finish. Dried straw on the palate too,with a slighty acidic finish, which tapers off nicely. I’d like to stack this against their Denver Pale Ale.
