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.

mcberko (8040) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours dark copper with a small white head. Grassy hops, pine and citrus on the nose, more reminiscent of an IPA. Flavour of smooth, resiny, piney hops, grass and citrus. Certainly one of the best pale ales I’ve tried yet.

Scopey (8036) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2008
2007 Bottle. Pours with a largish, slightly yellow, rocky white head that leaves lots of lacing. Ever so slightly hazed amber body. Tangy orange-citrus hops on the nose with a touch of cannabis. Taste is m alty with some light, but dank, chewy hops rounding out the finish (but bitterness is very moderate). Full, slightly syrupy mouthfeel.

650 ml bottle. From Malmö, Sweden. HHOK4.
Deep golden colour with tiny white head. Balanced fruity piney hoppy aroma. Short piney citrusy hoppy flavour that turns to sweetness. The hoppiness is quite sharp at first. Nicely balanced hoppiness. Good and refreshing hoppy ale.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber orange with a frothy tan head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was mainly citrus with a hint of pine, grass and hay. Flavor began with citrus, but grass hops grew and a bit of pine and grains in the finish.
