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.

Medium copper color, egg-white head, good lacing. Nice full aroma. Really nice, crisp mouthfeel. Great hop flavor, citrus (grapefruit, and a bit of orange), pine, resin, very balanced. Great Divide rarely disappoints - very nice pale ale.

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottled. Smell of a lot of hops, pine, grass. Pours golden with a nice head that last. Taste hops, citrus, pine and grass. This beer is a nice mellow hoppy beer if you want something that has favor but is still easy to drink.

Just didn't hit the right notes with me, or fell short of expected. Not that it wasn't good, it just wasn't above many others in the same type of fresh IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden amber with tan head. Aromas of grassy citrus notes with very slight malty sweetness. A very balanced hop malt flavor. Up front grassy notes with slight piney hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very strong hop bitterness with excellent aroma. Looks great and tastes even better. This is a must for any hophead!

Bottle. Pours copper with a small head and good lacing. Aroma is hops. The taste is an excellent blend of hops and grapefruit. Almost like an IPA. I really enjoyed this one.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange. Aromas of malt, grass, citrus, slight caramel and a touch of alcohol. Initial taste is malty with a slight bitterness. A tad spicy with a nice grassy flavor. Has a smooth piney/citrusy bitterness to it that hangs around. Mouthfeel is nice, smooth and a tad bitter. Overall a solid pale.

porkdiggity (108) - Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Grassy flavor. I got this is in February so it was probably a little past peak consumption time. A little flat on flavor, not as hoppy as I would expect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Riotbeard (107) - Birmingham, USA - JUN 1, 2010
This beer drinks damn good. The Aroma is hard to pick up but hints of citrus. Appearance is pale amber. Taste is very bitter with very fresh citrusy taste. Palate is very creamy.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Pours a deep golden/amber color with a big off-white head.The aroma is dominated by piney and citris notes with a little malt trying to escape. The flavor is hoppy and bitter throughout. Not as grassy as I expected, more citrisy. Just enough malt backbone to balance the beer. Not as good as Sierra Nevada Harvest but a nice, drinkable beer.
