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.

Scopey (15906) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle shared with Duff at the Rake. It pours a dark amber colour with a thin foamy white head. The nose is citrus fruit, roasted malt, hay and grass. It tastes of grass, hay, resin, pine, lemon, orange zest, spruce and some astringency. It’s medium-bodied with an oily texture and has a dry finish. A really drinkable APA.

bhensonb (15861) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bomber. Aroma of resin and citrus (though not exactly grapefruit). Amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is something caramel with a lot of floral and noble hop. The hop has the lead, and the malt slips away. The finish is decently dry, and the hop continues to build. It’s actually rather soft and smooth for such a hoppy drink.

djd07 (15704) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2008
On tap at Flying Saucer. Has a hazy golden orange color with a medium frothy off white head. The aroma is a strong hop and grass. Good lacing on the glass. The tase is fruity hops and citrus with a smooth finish. A great American pale ale from Great Divide.

3.5
imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Some pine like, spruce notes on opening, the beer itself was slightly sweeter than the aroma suggested. Grassy hops push through the lighter, fruity body, fresh, some hay, some herbs. Reasonable.
