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.

thewolf (12369) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph. Pours a clear, deep golden with a firm, medium frothy white head. Aroma is deeply hoppy with butter, grass, citrus and grapefruit. Feels powerful, but has a great balance to it still. Lively mouthfeel, but also rather full, getting more oily as it warms. Flavour is nicely sweet at first, some sweet caramel and malts. Then a sh**-load of hops take over, never burning. But in the aftertaste, there is a heavily dry hoppiness and it lasts for a very long time. I cant say that this is ever complex, but still a great fresh beer.

Newer label. green foil. Buttery and not hoppy. This one is pretty crappy. The bottling date is indecipherable.

Sammy (11811) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
SIgnificant grapefruit C hop aroma, quick fading head, lots of lace. Bitter like an ESB dying but very drinkable on a scorching Saturday. Drying aftertaste, tasty complex bitterness,like the hops, citrus, well malted, well carbonated. Some of the fresh homebrewed taste from this sub-style.

Camons (11697) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a huge white head, wich setles to a thin ring and lots of laces on the glas sides. Aroma of grass, pine, grapefruit. Taste is light grassy hops, some pine. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good tasty beer, but had higher expectations, would love to try a fresh bottle since the hops seems kindof faded. 180311

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Herbs and pine in the aroma. light fruits and spice notable. Fruits, loads of pine, some flowery notes, spice and sweetness in flavour. Medium bodied. Dry. Has a nice balanced bitterness in the end. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Could easily be a regular in my fridge.

"i was hoping for great, and got very good. no complaints, my expectations for GD have become so high its hard to measure up. this has a nice zesty, spicy, grassy and citrus hop bitterness which is very nice in the flavor and nose. a little light bodied, but fitting for the style. not a ton of malt presence. slightly darker than usual for the style. nice beer. one of the better pales ive had."

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2010
650 ml bottle. From Malm, Sweden. HHOK4.
Deep golden colour with tiny white head. Balanced fruity piney hoppy aroma. Short piney citrusy hoppy flavour that turns to sweetness. The hoppiness is quite sharp at first. Nicely balanced hoppiness. Good and refreshing hoppy ale.
