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.

Just didn't hit the right notes with me, or fell short of expected. Not that it wasn't good, it just wasn't above many others in the same type of fresh IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has light grassy Spice and a bit of fruitiness. Flavor follows suit...delicate, balanced and clean...earthy and tea like bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry yet hoppy/fruity finish. Clean and refreshing beer.

Very fresh bottle pours a clean clear gold with white fizz. Very nice earthy malty hop aroma. The flavor is a little malty with a nice citrus and a drying floral lightly piney hop. Overall decent, a nice clean pale ale with a slightly bold American hop profile, nicely done but seems slightly thin at times for 6.3%.

Draft - Fresh grapefruit and peel. Clear gold with a nice rich white head. Lots of grapefruit pee and a nice sweetness. Not bad.

Bottle pour. Pours nice Amber with good nose. Smells of bright, fresh hops. Taste is a little watery. Some good hop flavors, just not great on tongue. Easy to drink with plenty of palate left. Enjoyed for my first wet hop this season.

ESPh (134) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Nice caramel color and lacing. Mild grassy aroma. Tastes a little sweet, grassy with a little pine coming through. Moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Less bitter than an ipa but different for a pale ale.
