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.

Pours slightly hazed amber with light tan head, although it is a very thick head - dense and laces well as the pint goes down. Nose is very fresh fruit-like with some less common fruits like tangerine, peach, and the usual grapefruit. On the palate this is a tropical fruit ale all the way. Modest hop bitterness, modest malt, but very tropical overall.

Bottle: Pours a murky orange-brown color with no head and minimal lacing. Strong peach and mango aroma with mild floral hop notes. Dry, tart citrus flavor that ends with minimal hops present. Decent.

All the things that make a fresh hopped beer great are here. Love the drinkability and refreshing citrus on the palate. Good stuff

Had it on tap. Pours a deep copper clear hue with a thick white head (reminds me of Nipsy Russell). Light aroma with hints of citrus and it has a taste to match the smells, smooth, light , and not to bitter.

On draught at deschutes bend - pours clear copper with small white head. Nose of hop, malt, and grass. Taste is grassy, sweet malt, and hop finish. Nog as hoppy as I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought by Matt back from Malaysia. Amber-brown cloudy pour. White sudsy head with huge bubbles. Smells of crystalline malt, floral dusty hop. Slightly sweet and slightly dusty. Taste is moderately bitter, resin, faint pepper, lightly sweet malty finish. Body is medium, quite slick, smooth, long, moderate bitterness, lemony finish. Plenty of malt and decent amount of hop for a pale ale.

On draft. Notable for its sweet, ESB-y qualities, due to "wet hopping" I am told. Ill certainly have again.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2010
A: pours a nice clear dark golden orange, like fall foliage. nice slightly off-white head on top. good retention level with a nice moderate amount of lacing. S: huge citrus hop aromas take over the entire nose. mostly fresh oranges and some grapefruits. slight earthy notes. some sweet malt aromas but in the back. T: nice mildly sweet malt backbone, with a ton of hop flavors all over this, bitters, aromatic, just hops everywhere and very well balanced. wonderful citrus hops, with great orange and grapefruit flavors. M: medium bodied APA, but the fresh hop hits the palate more like an IPA. Great palate. perfect carbonation level. very, very crisp. D: great flavor and great mouthfeel. great fresh hopped brew and highly recommended. I enjoyed it greatly.

Decent pale ale. Nothing to rant and rave about, but very drinkable. Light hop bite....wish there was a bit more. Overall, solid offering, but remember that this is not an IPA, so dont expect a hop slap on your hop trip.

On tap @ Hamiltons and in bomber up in Nevada City. Super fresh tasting. Pretty hoppy but not overboard. Delicious and easy the best Ive had from Deschutes.
