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.

Draught at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours maple brown with a tan foamy head. Floral hop fragrant malt aroma. Sour and bitter rind hop and acidic caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and thin, fizzy palate.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2005
The aroma isn’t strong at all but there’s a bit of citrusy smelling hops. Creamy and lasting white head with good lacing. Orange color. The flavor is moderately bitter to the finish. Creamy texture and soft carbonation. It’s very one-dimensional but decent. A little overpriced.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2005
Pours a medium amber color with a medium off-white head. Lots of fine bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Citrus/pine resin hop dominates the flavor. There is a little bit of grassiness towards the finish. I would say this stuff has more than 55 IBUs, but what do I know? I would definitely drink this beer again. Perhaps a bit expensive for the style.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Dark golden to amber color with moderate off white head. Full PNW hop aromas with a hint of toasted bread and malt. Full hops flavors with grapefruit and light pine. Light toasted white bread underneath the hops are there, but not there to be a major role. more of and afterthought. Yes, the name implies hops, but ale also infers malt. A decent hopshead ale, just not balanced and relaxing.

Amber color with with slight off white head. Malt aroma with a grassy citruisy aroma. Nice smooth malts up front and then finishes with bitter citruisy hops. Good easy drinking pale ale.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2007
The aroma is strong with citrus and pine hops as well as caramel. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The flavor is bitter with both citrus and pine. There is enough caramel taste to make it drinkable but the flavor is slightly astringent. The palate is smooth but not exceptionally so. Overall it’s a good beer but thats all.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Golden straw colored ale that starts with a good head. Piney, citrusy hops with an undertone of rabbit pellets and circus peanuts (the candy kind). Not much of a malt backbone, which causes this to be a little off balance. Good if you’re a hophead. Thin on the palate with a long bitter finish. Take that Keystone Light!

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Amber with nice head. Nose of hops and grapefruit. Taste of malts and some grapefruit/citrus....good hop flavor. Good mouth feel with nice hoppy aftertaste.

theisti (3497) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Bomber. Pour is bright orange gold with a good sized white head. Aroma is hop, malt and a bit earthiness. Initial taste is somewhat traditional ale, with a bit more hop and dry bitterness to it. There is also a smack of sweetness. Finish is a pleasant bitter and more hop.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Nice sugary grapefruit aroma, looks a nice peachy amber in the glass with right spongefoam head. Tangy hop citrus flavor that sticks to your gums, which youve come to know and love. Not too deep, a little bit on the ’liquid’ watery side, but only a little. Decent stuff.
