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.

Very nice Fresh Hop Ale. Some mineral notes (Colorado Water). Fantastic head and retention. Great color. Very nice mouthfeel and a slight stickiness. Citrus and malts. Great fresh flavor, very nice bittering, and all in balance. Super drinkable. tasted @ 55F.

Very good hop aroma and taste apparently because they use wet hops. Great pale ale. Had a bomber with Vince while at Cloudland Canyon Grill.

Pours a nice deep golden color with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is light pine. Clean bready malt, clean bitterness, resiny hop flavor. Solid brew, easy drinking.

Amber and clear, small white head. Crazy strong floral, resin aromas, a little malt. High carb, fresh hop flavor. Great hop flavors but a little one sided, apparently that is their point.

an amazing APA from great divide. The hops remind me more of an IPA but thats what i love about it. strong and fresh pine and citrus aroma dominate. the taste is just as full of pine, citrus and maybe resin hops accents as the aroma. medium malt body helps balance this beer. palate was medium in body and a little oily which helps to leave a long tasty bitterness.

Destructive hop aroma. Pillowy white head on a rich orange yellow body. Taste is hoppy to the max, with some toasted grain sweetness in the background. I dont know how fresh hops make this beer any different, but its good.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2010
Lightly hazy orange amber color with a nice off white head. Super fresh aroma with loads of piney, grassy hops. Great flavor with lots of citrus fruit, pine, some ginger and that green fresh cone hoppiness.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2007
Orange in colour, foggy, like an amber twist on the weiss beer style. Very nice lacing head. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of citrus, clean and nice. Tastes sweet, natural, grassy, pine.. followed by a hint of bittersweet fruity taste.

Malt is not as sweet as the Titan but has similar biscuity notes. The hops are sharp and punishing with notes of pine. The mouthfeel is thick for a pale. My least favorite of the big bottle series which still places it far above other brewers. Makes me jones for an Oak Yeti.

Copper/amber body, with an off-white head. Even though the head diminished to a relatively thin layer, it produced a nice lace all the way to the end. Grapefruit aroma, and that is carried through in the flavor. Malts are also present, but they play a very minor supporting role. Somewhat lingering, grassy aftertaste. Full-bodied and quite smooth. Highly enjoyable beer. I can’t wait to try a few other Great Divide brews.
