Amazing beer! Pours the same copper color with a nice thick fluffy head. Great aromas with a nice fresh, green, resin hop smell...very, very pleasing. The taste is just delicious, with that amazing fresh taste of hops...with the green aspect to it, a little grassy, full of hop resins, citrusy, and sweet. Even though I wish the IBU’s were 15-20 higher, it really works perfect with this lighter malty sweetness. It is hands down the best APA I’ve had to date. I love that fresh harvest element BeerFanDan17 (1121) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Incredible pale ale. Hops were slightly bitter but with and overall sweet and soft palate. No overbearing hops, but almost an aftertaste of honeysuckle. hoplover (166) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Wow! ....Wow! The aroma is remenicent fresh sweet lemons. This amazing brew pours a wonderful hazy golden color with a creamy light tan head that lasts till the fat lady sings. The head leaves a delicate beautiful lace. The flavor is (like the Commercial Description) a pleasant grassiness Iv’e never tasted in a beer before...WOW! It’s great! Some hop spiciness and citrus notes... balanced well with a little sweetness from the pale malts. Just the right bitterness.... and it lingers well. And oh so smooth. It is now officially my favorite pale ale. Oh it’s great. I wish this would never end. But it has to. Thank you Great Divide for Fresh Hop Plae Ale. The Lord bless the hop harvest.

This is a fantastic Beer. Pours a nice creamy off white head that last. Amazing Citrus and Hoptastic Aroma on the nose. A nice smooth mouthfeel that most pale ales can’t pull off. Flavor is citrus and Hops. Delicious Delicious Delicious PetervanderArend (19) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2009

Bottle. Pour is amber orange with BIG frothy soapy head and great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with a nice blend of malt that smells (creamy). Taste is creamy pine and citrus with a malty ending (very smooth). Palate is medium bodied and creamy with subtle carbonation and a dry finish. Excellent showing and glad its so fresh, 8 days since bottled (says bottle), great pale ale! JohnRMurdoch (5050) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall, London. Smooth pine hop aroma. Amber brown colour with a good foamy head. Spicy hop flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Good one. dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Fresh 2011 vintage. Pours light, clear amber with 2 fingers of head, great retention. Aroma is cheesy, grassy hops with a hint of tangerine and orange peel, barely a hint of toast. Taste is big roasty caramel with a grapefruity, grassy finish. Body is light to medium, oily, approachable bitterness, low carbonation, dry finish. Overall, having just brewed a batch of beer prior to consuming this, I can verify that this beer perfectly exhibits the aroma characteristics of un-boiled hops. Incredibly fresh and delicious.

Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Pours orange with a small head. Tastes of strong grapefruit and orange peel hops. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky with a great aftertaste of hops. Love it.
