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.

Bottle. Aroma of light hops and cardboard, taste is bread like and mildly bitter. There is a sour rough feeling across the palate. The appearance was an amber color that left oil on the glass. Iím guessing this one was oxidized a little or something. An overall muted and off putting experience. Unfortunately itís the only one I have.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Thin, reedy grapefruit monstering around as a nicely colored but anorexic beer one might find anywhere. Have I said anything about the body and the flavor? Thin and acidic, but not in a good way. Not infected, just one dimensional! I usually like this dimension too.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bomber, pours hazy orange gold, off white head. Aroma is citrus, graham cracker, caramel, malt, some peat. Flavor is hoppy and bitter, sweet (graham cracker) and thin. Some peat detected as well. I canít say Iím a fan.

On tap @ Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md-Golden pour w/a moderate white head. Citrus hop aroma. Overly aggressive hop bite, some grass/grain, not really a whole lot else here. Tasted more like an IPA to me (thatís what they were calling it@ the bar) & not a very good one @ that. Extremely out of balance, I wouldnít drink this again.

cheap (3941) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Big 22 oz bomber bottle into a big beer glass. Fresh hoppy floral aroma, not pine. Hazy brew with a lighter than iced tea color. Plenty of carbonation within, tho not much on the palate. Not exceptionally acrid hoppy but certainly plenty of hops. Bitter medicine feel about it. Yep, borders on IPA territory. Weirdly fruity at times. Long lingering nasty finish. Too much for this lager lover. You can tell this is 6% fer sure. A stronger flavored APA.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Pflug. Clear orange pour. Wet, citrus hop aroma. Taste is rough. Rubber bands and pine. Unpleasant finish with an aftertaste that lingers like a stank ass fart.

cwsample (162) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle from Cavie. Smells like Christmas trees. Iím not a fan of a lot of Hops, and the hops are very prevalant. A slight musk smell is also noticed.

Newer label. green foil. Buttery and not hoppy. This one is pretty crappy. The bottling date is indecipherable.

I had this from a 22oz bottle. I must of had a bad bottle, because when I looked at the 95 rating I thought was this the same beer. I thought the color was a golden brown with a thin head. The smell was hops with what I thought smelled like peanuts. The taste was a mix of that hops with peanuts. I have to say I hated it I poured it down the drain.I will give it a 2nd try if I see it on tap.
