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.

Pours a rich amber color. Aroma is malty with mild hops. Flavor is intially bitter with a mild hop and malt finish. A nice pale ale.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2004
2003 series. Pours clear amber/copper with a thin-medium off-white head. Grassy, piney hops aroma. Piney hops flavor is played off a biscuity, caramely, lemony malt matrix. Aftertaste returns to piney/grassy hops. Enjoyable yet nondescript; I'm not sure how this fits the "bold and assertive" category the "Maverick" series claims to entail.

BeerandBlues2 (12192) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 22, 2005
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 (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2005
The aroma isnít strong at all but thereís 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. Itís 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 (5667) - 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.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Brilliant golden. Grassy exotically fruity hop aroma, pine as well. Attractive aroma. Good bitterness. Medium bodied, touch of crystal sweetness. Hop flavor is very grassy. Distractingly so. I enjoy the pungency of fresh hops, this is just too grassy for my tastes.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2006
Hop aroma, but not full or flowery,orange red color, hops dominate a surprisingly thin body, the bitterness is there but it is short on hop flavor and aroma. Iím guessing that the starting gravity on this brew was lower then they intended. Needs more malt,more flavor hops and more cowbell

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Aroma is hoppy, with a bit of honey, and a thick white head. Taste is much like the aroma, itís a pale ale, which is a bit sweeter then most. Itís a very quality beer. Northwest style hops, would do better with higher IBUís.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2006
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.
