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.

Aroma is yeast, pine, tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of biscuit malts. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, mild to medium hop resin, malts and a long and heavy bitterness in the finish. Can’t remember if I’ve had a wet hop APA as opposed to an IPA; either way this was great.

Une magnifique bière au nez qui explose de notes de houblon frais, d’épices, d’écorce de citron, pointe de caramel. Bouche tout aussi délicieuse avec une mousse onctueuse, une grande fraîcheur, un arôme de houblon frais persitant et une longue finale sur une magnifique amertume. Un régal...

After tasting the monstrously fresh Born Yesterday, I was concerned Fresh Hop would be overshadowed. (Fresh Hop was just short of a month past the bottling date compared to a day past), but I need not have worried. Great Divide always turns out a great hop-focused beer. With a grassy aroma, Fresh Hop hints at aggressive American hops. Flavor, however, is balanced rather than intense. The dank earth tones are offset by sweet biscuit malt tastes. There’s also some grapefruit. Wet, bitter hop sensations on the palate. If you like pursuing fresh herbs, this doesn’t disappoint.

Bottle. Pour is amber orange with BIG frothy soapy head and great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with a nice blend of malt that smells (creamy). Taste is creamy pine and citrus with a malty ending (very smooth). Palate is medium bodied and creamy with subtle carbonation and a dry finish. Excellent showing and glad its so fresh, 8 days since bottled (says bottle), great pale ale!

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Fresh 2011 vintage. Pours light, clear amber with 2 fingers of head, great retention. Aroma is cheesy, grassy hops with a hint of tangerine and orange peel, barely a hint of toast. Taste is big roasty caramel with a grapefruity, grassy finish. Body is light to medium, oily, approachable bitterness, low carbonation, dry finish. Overall, having just brewed a batch of beer prior to consuming this, I can verify that this beer perfectly exhibits the aroma characteristics of un-boiled hops. Incredibly fresh and delicious.

Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Pours orange with a small head. Tastes of strong grapefruit and orange peel hops. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky with a great aftertaste of hops. Love it.

Couldn’t tell you how old it was, but here it is almost 01/12 and it was at the store. I couldn’t believe I haven’t rated it yet. Wonderful nose, lots of fresh hop character, it didn’t seem old at all. Very piney, citrus, just amazing nose. Mouthfeel was rather light, and average carbonation. Flavor hit all of the right notes. Finish was very bitter. Leaves the New Belgium Fresh Hop in the dust. Overall, excellent brew. Enjoyability 4/5.
