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.

an amazing APA from great divide. The hops remind me more of an IPA but thats what i love about it. strong and fresh pine and citrus aroma dominate. the taste is just as full of pine, citrus and maybe resin hops accents as the aroma. medium malt body helps balance this beer. palate was medium in body and a little oily which helps to leave a long tasty bitterness.

Destructive hop aroma. Pillowy white head on a rich orange yellow body. Taste is hoppy to the max, with some toasted grain sweetness in the background. I dont know how fresh hops make this beer any different, but its good.

Lightly hazy orange amber color with a nice off white head. Super fresh aroma with loads of piney, grassy hops. Great flavor with lots of citrus fruit, pine, some ginger and that green fresh cone hoppiness.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2007
Orange in colour, foggy, like an amber twist on the weiss beer style. Very nice lacing head. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of citrus, clean and nice. Tastes sweet, natural, grassy, pine.. followed by a hint of bittersweet fruity taste.

Malt is not as sweet as the Titan but has similar biscuity notes. The hops are sharp and punishing with notes of pine. The mouthfeel is thick for a pale. My least favorite of the big bottle series which still places it far above other brewers. Makes me jones for an Oak Yeti.

Copper/amber body, with an off-white head. Even though the head diminished to a relatively thin layer, it produced a nice lace all the way to the end. Grapefruit aroma, and that is carried through in the flavor. Malts are also present, but they play a very minor supporting role. Somewhat lingering, grassy aftertaste. Full-bodied and quite smooth. Highly enjoyable beer. I canít wait to try a few other Great Divide brews.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bomber (bottled 10/4/12)------&g tulip. Pours a dark tea color with a bubbly white head that quickly disappears leaving pretty good lacing. Strong grass aroma with a bit of caramel and tangerine. Strong fresh grass taste with an odd metallic bite.Very mild bitter, this one actually (and oddly) gets better as it warms. Palate is kind of thin with little carbonation. I would drink this again, but itís nothing to write home about.

TH28 (237) - - OCT 24, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy deep golden with a moderate white foam cap. Aroma is strong fresh cut grass, with hints of pine and wood. Taste is a rich, toasty malt that gives way to a strong bitterness and hop flavors of acidic grapefruit, pine, and grass. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a moderate carbonation. Finishes very dry and sticky on the tongue with a lingering bitterness and grassy flavor. Overall, an assertively bitter APA with tons of grassy hop flavor and aroma.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2007
On cask at GABF 2007. Honestly, this pour blew me away. One of the best beers Iíve ever had. The floral hops, citrus zest, and piney hops were just alive. This brew sparkled on the palate, medium-bodied and malty. Nice bread flavor on the front, full piney hops on the palate and a sweet citrus finish. Just a beautiful beer.

Bottle. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is grassy, citrus. Flavor is pine and grass, herbal, with good malt flavor underneath. Very good Pale Ale.
