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.

Serving type: 22 oz bottle A: pours a copper orange color with a decent amount of head. Great lacing too! S: grassy and citrus notes, along with some pine. Smells really inviting as it should being a fresh hop ale. T: it is a very clean tasting beer, that finishes smooth. There is no resiny aftertaste. It has a pleasant fresh grass and citrus flavor profile, with a slight malt backbone. O: a very fresh tasting pale ale that I would buy again!

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bomber. Rich orange pour with a spotty foamy white head. Nice bold aroma of grassy and sweet floral hops. Smooth palate, clean with soft edges. Nice bold hop punch but well balanced. Great beer.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA (best before December 30, 2013). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, and grapefruit rind. Well-balanced flavor of piney and grassy hops with notes of toffee and caramel. Bitterness does not linger too long on the palate. This is a well-balanced, easily quaffable pale ale that stands near the top of the heap.

Creamy green aroma. Taste is incredibly fresh, notes of green vegetables, mint and lemon. Finish is light. Excellent taste but lacking depth of body.

Draft. Crystal clear golden amber color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of meadows, grass, light flowers. Taste is bright, fruity fresh flowers. Delicious.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2013
This beer has a clear amber color with a large off-white head and smells like pure hops: resin, floral, and grass. Although the scent isn’t too overpowering, the taste hits you hard with a heavy bitterness with a mild sweetness, but these two flavors blend extremely well, leaving you wanting more. Also, the palate very nicely complements the flavor with the thin texture, light body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter but definitely long finish. This beer is definitely great and light despite a nice large flavor. Very well done.

DCLawyer (2839) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bomber->SA. Clear bright copper with big frothy offwhite head. Aroma and taste a strong pine and citrus hops over malt. Somewhat watery. Lingering bitterness. Taste is a bit off-putting. OK, but disappointing.

3.8
icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Big citrusy hop aroma. Dark golden amber with lacy white fine head. Nice, if somewhat subdued citrus flavor. Smooth, slightly acidic finish with no real bitterness. Nice.
