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.

Golden amber ale with a thin creamy white head. As the name and label suggests, fresh green hops, resinous quality, and orange menthol notes. In mouth, a nice floral hops, light grapefruit, oily mouthfeel and pinhey. Almost minty. Medium bodied. Enjoyed with the Mtl Crew Sept. 9, 2006.

Christian (12623) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2007
Clear copper/amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Most awesome GD hoppy aroma. Grass, citrus, tobacco, and a little peach. Plenty of malt richness and sweetness, and a smooth velvet mouthfeel. Wonderful APA flavour and bitterness, with that perfect GD balance.

Scopey (11993) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle shared with Duff at the Rake. It pours a dark amber colour with a thin foamy white head. The nose is citrus fruit, roasted malt, hay and grass. It tastes of grass, hay, resin, pine, lemon, orange zest, spruce and some astringency. It’s medium-bodied with an oily texture and has a dry finish. A really drinkable APA.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph. Pours a clear, deep golden with a firm, medium frothy white head. Aroma is deeply hoppy with butter, grass, citrus and grapefruit. Feels powerful, but has a great balance to it still. Lively mouthfeel, but also rather full, getting more oily as it warms. Flavour is nicely sweet at first, some sweet caramel and malts. Then a sh**-load of hops take over, never burning. But in the aftertaste, there is a heavily dry hoppiness and it lasts for a very long time. I can’t say that this is ever complex, but still a great fresh beer.

Bov (11748) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 8, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - cloudy dark amber-orange colour with a solid but chaotic beige foam; unclean nose, fairly hoppy aroma with notes of flowers, cream and hints of fruits in the background; rounded and full-bodied; solidly bitter; very long flowery hoppy finish, quite dry - a solid and straightforward brew
