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.

Bomber. Cushy off white head sitting on a medium amber beer. Strong aroma of, duh, fresh hops along with some toasty malt, a bit of fruit as well. Flavor is quite bitter, starts out pretty malty but there is quite a kick at the end from the hops. I’m surprised this has only 55 IBUs with the kick in the pants you get. Medium bodied. Pretty dry. Nice beer, nothing all that special though.

A good beer from the Divide. I was a bit dissapointed with the aftertaste. I might have expected a little more bitterness and hoppiness, but overall an enjoyable beer.

I was expecting a lot because Great Divide makes great beer. I bought it with out hesitation. Friar Tucks in Peoria, IL sells old beer. It was from 07. I will re-rate this beer from a better store. Cloudy Copper pour with an off-white head. All I could smell was the malt. All I could really taste was the malt. It was tasty because Great Divide makes good beer. I am sure this would of been better fresher. It left great lacing on the glass. I am sure I would rate this better, but Friar Tucks in Peoria, IL sucks in rotating beer. I will re-rate this by going to a better store that takes pride in selling beer at its freshest.

Tap at bro tucks. Clear orange/amber pour. White head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and light honey. Flavor is loaded with grapefruit, light caramel, and light bready notes. Resinous on the finish.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2009
On draught at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL): Pours a clear copper. Nose is faint, but I can sense earthy hops, grass, and citrus. Typical IPA flavors with added honey and caramel. Mild carbonation and medium bodied. This ale is lacking that bitter punch in the finish that I’m expecting, or more so wanting. Drinkability: Smooth and enjoyable, but a little boring. Rebuy: Maybe. #187 on 07112009, DG.

Bottle: Pours amber with a large sandy head. Tons of sticky lacing. Thick aroma of citrus and grapefruit with light fruity sweetness. Really a delicious smell. Taste isn’t nearly as hoppy... comes out with light citrus, florals, and a bready maltiness. Cuts into the hop profile quite a bit. High hopes at first sniff, but ends up coming in right around average.

deflagro (106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden liquid with a fairly large, off-white head. Aroma is fresh and fruity with a nice hop character and a tiny malt sweetness. Taste is a bit sweet with some hop fruitiness and a rather sharp bitterness. Fresh and very drinkable.
