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.

Stop your search! This is it!
A perfectly balanced american pale ale. Very hoppy yet smoth and fresh.
Orange with a fluffy white head.
Aroma is light grass and citrus.
The Flavor is fantastic. Rich, with big hop at the end.
The only downside is that I only had one.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Piney and very earthy hop flavors. Truly one of my favorites. It has become almost impossible to get in Iowa. A fantastic beer hands down! Great Divide Co. has continued to brew unbelievable world-class ales!

Maybe my new fravorite pale ale. Great tasting hops, wonderful aroma, and a very smooth feel in the mouth. Pours with white head. Great brew.
