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.

Finally found this in Atlanta. I really the fresh hop beers, when I can get them. The aroma was only moderately hoppy with distinctive grass and citrus. Rocky, off-white head wit excellent lacing that lasted longer than I expected. Initial flavor was moderately bitter with a light, sweet, short finish. Carbonation was quite flat. This was a good, but not great beer. As far as "fresh hop" beers go, this is the best Iíve had for a while.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Not sure when my bottle was from (no date), but there was so much sediment in the bottle that I had to leave a couple ounces to avoid getting it in my glass. The flavor was OK, not what I was expecting, but I think I got an old poorly strored bottle. Great Divide is one of my favorite, if not no.1 brewery, so Iím thinking it was the liqour stores fault.

Bottle. Pours orange/yellow with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma is quite nice, mostly hops and a touch of orange zest. Taste is a bit more mellow than the aroma, starts with strong floral hops, a touch of caramel and malt in the middle, fininshes dry and bitter with a touch of spice. Fairly thick for a pale ale, a bit of syrup is left behind. Damn good.

Pours a hazy gold copper color with a nice head. Smells of hops, pine, grass, orange and grapefruit. Tastes of piney hops, grass, citrus and grapefruit not overly bitter and balanced out by a toffee malt flavor. Medium body and medium carbonation.

This is an awesome fresh hop beer. This is the type if fresh hop beer other fresh hop beers wish they could be. Great golden/orange color with white lasting head. Wonderful citrusy aroma. Overall tasty beer.

Very nice Fresh Hop Ale. Some mineral notes (Colorado Water). Fantastic head and retention. Great color. Very nice mouthfeel and a slight stickiness. Citrus and malts. Great fresh flavor, very nice bittering, and all in balance. Super drinkable. tasted @ 55F.

Very good hop aroma and taste apparently because they use wet hops. Great pale ale. Had a bomber with Vince while at Cloudland Canyon Grill.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Tap @ Parkway. Clear copper pour with a white head leaving heavy lace. Smooth, medium, light-toast body and fairly balanced. Pleasant but not overpowering fresh hop aroma. Tad watery/lightweight in the finish. A bit down on the Fresh Hop list, but a solid APA.
