COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Bond Street Series. This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 270 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers’ farm outside Salem, Oregon will be added to the 50 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel brewed.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is grapefruit, tropical, pine, and malt. Nice APA.

Foffern (2047) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2017
On tap at Belmont Station, Portland, Oregon. Pours a clear dark amber colour and a small light beige head. Aroma of herbs, caramel, flowers, tropical fruits and some diacetyl. Flavour of grapefruit, pine, grass, sweet biscuits and some diacetyl. Dry ending. Has a slick mouthfeel, medium body and a medium bitterness. A well hopped APA. Too bad with the diacetyl that disturbs my experience.

AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2017
16 oz. pint at Whole Foods Clybourn, Chicago. Almost clear in color gold. Slightly sweet, mild floral / pine bitterness. Weak citrus. This is well made but standard issue. A classic West Coast influenced APA.

oobawa (1864) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2017
Pretty good pale ale, more malt-forward than expected, a moderate base of caramel and toasted bread providing ample padding for the crisp, woody hops. Notes of pine and earth mix with pencil shavings, slight lemon, and a hint of dankness. Mild finish leaves something to be desired. Pours a healthy orange-gold with a thin white head and decent lacing. Underwhelming nose gives off more bread and caramel than hop. Good brisk, perky texture. Not a bad pint, but nothing to write home about.

3.6
jbruner (5466) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice earthy and floral hop notes over a strong caramel malt base. Taste follows, perhaps a bit too malt forward for a fresh hop beer in my book. But well done and clean.

3.7

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 Pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is sweet malts and resin
