Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately, so no one brewer starts the brew in Bend, while another rushes the hops three hours back from the Willamette Valley. The result? Let's just say it was worth the drive.

    Although better than their fresh-hop mirror pond, this one (purchased and tried a few days after showing up at my favorite beer store), is a slight disappointment. The aroma and flavor seem slightly muted considering how fresh the beer is. Still good but there are better fresh-hop beers available. 10/20/13: Tried this again and was more impressed. Very pungent pine and citrus aroma jumps out of the bottle but still a little thin in the body. Better than I remember from a couple of years ago.

    It pours a dark burnt-orange and amber with a thick white-orange head and some copious lacing. An aroma of caramel malts, hops, pine, grapefruit, bitterness, and some spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth and rather rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, grapefruit, pine, bitterness, and spices. Very good!

    Aromas of sweet malts, rich citrus and floral hops that border on pungent. Amber body, ok carbonation, mouthfeel is stickey sweet. Flavors Start with a pine and caramel combo as the malts fade the spicey hops come to the front. Blended well and bold, a nice beer.

    SCORE!!! Got a case of this AMAZING brew for - read this - 12.99!!!!!! Twelve 22 oz bottles for 13 bucks. Honest. The Class VI (post liquor store) was GIVING these away by the case, so I just had to grab one. Now, the review ----- Probably one of the best examples of an American Pale Ale I have had yet. Pours a deep amber and rich tan head, lacing the glass lightly through the experience. Floral, spring fruit, spice, and hops abound in the aroma. Sweet orange blossom, honey, and a touch of cinnamon/pepper??? Flavor is rich with honey sweet grapefruit and orange, hops, light malt back and an earthy finish. Had this brew a few times, so pulling the trigger on a case, especially at that price, was a no-brainer. Damn thing nearly jumped into my hands...... Oh, and yes it is available for trade ( I have 8 left )

    Pours slightly cloudy with copper amber color. taste is moderate hops with clean bitter after taste. Generally pleasant before and after taste. well worth a try if you can find it, rare in my town, not a grocery store brew.

    A nice, hoppy pale ale. Hop Trip pours a bright red-gold with a nice off-white head. There’s some lacing. The aroma is bright and floral with the smell of fresh hops. The malt sweetness has a pleasant caramel aroma. The flavor is similar, fresh, floral hops blended with pleasant caramel malt. It’s a very pleasant pale ale. However, I’ve felt somehow disappointed in both this year’s and last year’s version. I like my fresh hop ales big and bright and Hop Trip is just a bit restrained and balanced for my tastes.

    Vegas - passed up the opportunity to drink this fresh on tap but I'd just drank a bottle the day before and the other taps at the Freakin Frog had to be sampled first (this ended up being the legendary flemish sour / sake / Ardbeg night with 4 beers sitting in front of me).
    The aroma absolutely blew me away. The best. Period. Incredible fruit that made me drool and is making me drool thinking about it, nectarines, ripe apricots, maybe raspberries (more so than any other berry). So fragrant it's unreal. Flowers as well. Oranges when warmer and still lots of leafy hops, sweet mild caramel. Damn, this is fine. The taste is pretty good as well but not in the same league as the aroma. Loads of fruit with nectarines, apricots and raspberries, leafy hops, some bitterness. After awhile it gets a bit empty. Good soft malts to accompany the killer hops (blends in very well), weak weak peppermint???, slight spice. Good carbonation, medium bodied, nice "just-before-finish" spice, leafy bitter finish with fruit (apricots) and caramel. Great colour! The aroma was just too good to even mention what this looked like prior. Deep orange beer with some off white to tan head, ropy lacing throughout. Excellent and so damn enjoyable.

    Sampled from bottle, City Beer, SF, 11/08. Pours clear dark copper with a thick head and remarkable lacing. Citrus, pine hop nose. The same hops are noted in the flavor along with a distinctive bready, caramelized malt. Very smooth. Worth seeking out!

    ok, i didn't realize this one would be in the APA catergory as well. This is one of my favorite beers any style. I just love fresh hop ales, so that puts others at a disadvantage, but what a great hoppy beer! 2010-don't know if they dropped the ball this year, changed the recipe, or what, but this was more malty than hoppy, and the beautiful bright floral aroma never showed. hopefully, this was an off bottle or batch. future years will tell, but it's been a 4.4 in several past years...2010 is a 3.5. downgrade the overall to 4.2. Hopefully 2011 is back up to par. 2011is most definitely back up to par...the best pale i've had (along w/alpha king and stone session). sooooo delicious and fresh. for the style it's just ridiculous. glad 2010 seems to be an abberation. And...now in 6 packs!!!
