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.

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 I’m 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.

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.

Aroma- Really great hoppy aroma, Grass and pine really stick out. Appearance- Pale Golden color with lots of head. Taste- Mild bitterness not a lot lot of strong flavor at all, just a very drinkable beer. Palate- I’d say light to medium bodied, and very refreshing. Overall- A very good beer the taste isn’t as big as the nose which was a little disappointing but if you take it for what it is, a refreshing hoppy pale ale, it’s a damn good beer.

Citrusy hop aroma of a ripened grapefruit makes your mouth water before you take your first sip. Great caramel malt to go with the refreshing hop bitterness in this medium bodied pale ale.

hiddenvariable (209) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2007
on tap at kelly’s. poured a clear amber with a medium off white head that hung out and laced very nicely. smells of sprucy hops with a grapefruit citrus mixed in, and a bit of caramel malt to back it up. taste has a deep hop flavor profile, like grapefruit growing from a pine tree, with a hint of bready malt. moderately bitter on the finish and a bit of a grainy mouthfeel, with a medium body and quite a bit of carbonation. i really dig the hop complexity.

This beer pours a burnt orange color with a rich, frothy head. The aroma is sweet, floral, and grassy. The flavor is slightly sweet with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
