COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.

Has a great golden color. Smells wonderful. Tastes likes flowers and fruit with a differnt bitterness at the end. Not that bad but after I am done with this one I am going to have a Bitter Woman.

fiulijn (20063) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Golden color. The aroma is hoppy, very nice, fruity (apricots and grapefruit) and resiny. The hops are lovely, the body is quite thin. Of course the end is extremely long and bitter (resins, hazelnuts).

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Pours a hazy golden orange with just a slight ring of foam. Wonderful citric grapefruit aroma, literally smells like I just cut open a piece of fresh fruit. Great hop profile! Body is kind of light, with that amazing hoppiness following through but the malt profile is really light, still well balanced and over the top which is exactly what I expect from a fresh hop style pale ale.

tennisjoel (1418) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Classic floral aroma. Amber body with 1 finger head. Good lacing. Decent amount of hops for the style. Toasty nutty flavor on the finish which I am not super fond of. Okay but no where near my favorite in this style. This is the first of the Great Divide beers Ive had which wasnt great.
