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.

Pours a medium amber color with a medium off-white head. Lots of fine bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Citrus/pine resin hop dominates the flavor. There is a little bit of grassiness towards the finish. I would say this stuff has more than 55 IBUs, but what do I know? I would definitely drink this beer again. Perhaps a bit expensive for the style.

Amber color with with slight off white head. Malt aroma with a grassy citruisy aroma. Nice smooth malts up front and then finishes with bitter citruisy hops. Good easy drinking pale ale.

The aroma is strong with citrus and pine hops as well as caramel. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The flavor is bitter with both citrus and pine. There is enough caramel taste to make it drinkable but the flavor is slightly astringent. The palate is smooth but not exceptionally so. Overall it’s a good beer but thats all.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Golden straw colored ale that starts with a good head. Piney, citrusy hops with an undertone of rabbit pellets and circus peanuts (the candy kind). Not much of a malt backbone, which causes this to be a little off balance. Good if you’re a hophead. Thin on the palate with a long bitter finish. Take that Keystone Light!

Amber with nice head. Nose of hops and grapefruit. Taste of malts and some grapefruit/citrus....good hop flavor. Good mouth feel with nice hoppy aftertaste.

theisti (4114) - Kansas, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Bomber. Pour is bright orange gold with a good sized white head. Aroma is hop, malt and a bit earthiness. Initial taste is somewhat traditional ale, with a bit more hop and dry bitterness to it. There is also a smack of sweetness. Finish is a pleasant bitter and more hop.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Nice sugary grapefruit aroma, looks a nice peachy amber in the glass with right spongefoam head. Tangy hop citrus flavor that sticks to your gums, which youve come to know and love. Not too deep, a little bit on the ’liquid’ watery side, but only a little. Decent stuff.

JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Pine, caramel, and citrus aroma, with a clear golden amber pour and a nice white head and lacing. Flavors are not very interesting. Citrus, hops, and malt. Nothing really stands out.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Not sure when my bottle was from (no date), but there was so much sediment in the bottle that I had to leave a couple ounces to avoid getting it in my glass. The flavor was OK, not what I was expecting, but I think I got an old poorly strored bottle. Great Divide is one of my favorite, if not no.1 brewery, so I’m thinking it was the liqour stores fault.

TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2007
Caramel in the aroma. Kind of creamy, with a bit of nice sourness on the back-end. Solid Pale Ale.
