look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This brew poured from a 22 oz bottle looks orange-yellow in the light. The color is very nice. Carbonation was minor at first, but remained at the same level for the whole time it took me to drink the brew. White bubbles.

Smell was a little disappointing. I think my bottle is about 8 weeks old though, so my guess is that the smell was great a couple months back. Smell is of light citrus notes and grapefruit- slight sour odor.

Taste is a little harsh. The predominate flavor is malt, with the slightest lemon aftertaste. I would say the hop level has simply declined with time. With that said, when I warm it for a moment in my mouth, I find that it releases more of the hoppy flavor that I am used to in a pale ale.

Not too bad for a pale ale, but needs to be consumed closer to the date produced. I will likely try again next fall.

Cheers!

thanks to warriorsoul for the hookup!

22oz settles clear in the glass, interesting color variations from yellowish-gold to crimson towards the surface. bubbles are alive inside. two-finger foam forms quickly and dissolves slowly leaving beautiful craters and three-dimensional lacing patterns. even the airy foam atop this beer has pungent, dry, fruity hop characteristics.. as i find out as my nose and lips accidentally come in contact with the crown.

aroma pleases with juicy hop aromas.. not overwhelming and no alcohol detectable. a nice brown sugary malt presence here balances.. unexpected but nice. some apple aromas as well as something spicy like yeast.

well, this beer sure packs a different punch in the flavor. mouthfeel is a bit heavier, hop bitterness and overall pine sting are in line with most west coast dipa's, and the mouth is pretty much completely coated with botanical resin after one hearty sip. still, the lack of alcohol burn in the finish makes this slightly more drinkable. sipping isn't really an option once the addictive bittering sting has been felt. like sour patch kids or warheads, this is one beer that provides the hophead with masochistic joy. however, 1/3 through the bottle, the bright sweetness fades and most sips are full of aggressive bitterness and a lack of inspiration.

met my expectations, only wish it was a tad more drinkable. for a pale ale, could have dropped to 5 or so % and still kicked ass. recommended for fans of hoppy beers.. just don't go in expecting nectar of hop juice spritzer.

22oz. bomber provided by AKSmokedPorter via the BS-BIF.

Pours a hazy orange amber with a withe head that thins. Mild lacing.

Aroma is very grassy and citrusy with some mild malt aroma as well.

Very citrusy, fresh and grassy hop flavor upfront. There's a bit of malt that presents itself followed by a nice bitter bite. Finishes slightly bitter and dry. Bitter aftertaste.

Nice slick texture and ample carbonation.

Quite drinkable and a nice tatsing brew. At times, it's almost like having a mouthfull of fresh hop cones.

Been looking forward to this one with all the local buzz about it. Still a newb to reviewing beers. I bought this 22oz bottle and poured it into 2 average pint glasses.

A - Golden in color. Thick head that settles very slowly. Nice lacing
S - Sweet lemon(?) grassy smell. Not an overwhelming smell, but definitely there.
T - Bitter hops at the back of your tongue. Not a sharp hoppyness, but white spiced and earthy if that makes sense. Refreshing. Not caramelly or malty. I can't quite place it...Seems simple at first, but then is more complex. There's something going on that I can't quite put my finger on. Did I just chew gum?
M - medium to light body. Bubbley if you try to slurp taste it.
D - Wish I bought another bottle. I didn't see any more in the liquor store today. This is a refreshing and light hoppy beer. Another bottle might have helped the reviewing too. heehee! Mint chocolate chip ice cream sounds pretty good right now after this beer.

WTH? My husband just poured his half of the bomber to me. Guess I'm in luck. LOL

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The appearance of this beer is almost picture perfect. A thick off-white head sitting on top of a golden body with amber highlights. Good head retention with some lace clinging to the sides. A nice whiff of citrus and floral aroma after the pour. A bitter grapefruit taste that lingers on the tongue for awhile. Not much maltiness, but it isn't lop-sided with hops either. Light to medium-bodied and a good beer over all.

3.65/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Aroma: Lemon zest, grass, some grapefruit, orange peel.

Looks: Almost clear. Nice copper/amber colour.
Needed a vigorous pour to produce an average sized head. Good head retention. Foam was a creamy, off-white colour. Good amount of lace left behind.

Taste: Bitter, but balanced by the malts. Grassy flavours. Flavours of citrus rind, endives, grass. Upon first entering my mouth I could taste some malty flavour, but that was quickly overcome by the hop bitterness & flavours. Long bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Slightly lower than average CO2. On the heavier side of medium bodied.

Overall, a good Beer. However I would not pay $8.00 for another bottle, as I could find many similar tasting Beers for a more modest price... That said I would still reccommend trying it at least once.

22oz bottle (bottled 9/29/09) received as winnings in the SNF squares BIF from kiltedtxn. Thanks. Poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours a bright amber orange with a thick finger of cream colored head on top. Crystal clear - easily can see right thru this one. Head has excellent staying power, probably helped by the steady stream of bubbles coming off of the laser etching at the bottom of the glass. Good looking pale ale.

S - Rich and citrusy. Lots of oranges and grapefruit up front with notes of cut grass and some tropical fruits. A touch of pine in the background. Some sweet and slightly caramelly malt blends and balances nicely.

T - Nice and bitter first impression. Grapefruit is up front and stays throughout. Bitterness turns a bit and ends up being a bit medicinal like. The overall fruitiness in the nose is not really present in the flavor. A bit of bready/biscuity malt appears as the beer warms up a little. Overall, an enjoyable beer, but the somewhat harsh medicine bitterness detracts overall.

M - Medium body, perhaps a bit on the thin side. Carbonation is moderate as well. Bitterness coats the mouth entirely and just stays there forever...way after the last swallow, this one leaves something to remember.

D - The medicinal bitterness detracts from the drinkability of this one. This is about 4 months old, so maybe some of the fresh hop goodness has left this one. Not a bad beer, but one bomber is plenty. It's going down without any problem...I just wish it was a little bit smoother on the hop character.

Poured into a snifter.

4.5 A: Clear light/medium orange color. Two fingers of white, dense frothy head. Retention is good and plenty of lacing is left behind.

4.0 S: Dank grassy and citrusy hops, with emphasis on orange and mango. Clean overall with a balancing neutral maltiness and a touch of crystal malt.

3.5 T: Good, but the hops don't pop as much as I had hoped. Grassy, earthy, and orange citrus with a touch of pine. Malts play a larger part in the taste. Moderate sweetness with an equal breadines and some crystal malt to a lesser extent. Moderate bitterness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy, but I could go for some more. Smooth.

3.5 D: I used the word "moderate" a lot in this review and it's only fair to call this beer "moderate" overall. Nothing really stands out, but it is still a solid brew.

A: poured an orangish brown in color with yellow highlights and a very thin head that barely left any lacing sticking to the glass.

S: some nice citrusy hoppy notes came through on the first whiff alongside a little malty sweetness, and a bit of orange tangerine notes.

T: the orange tangerine qualities were more apparent on the palate with a very mild hop bit, a good amount of malty sweetness and piney accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a low amount of carbonation which had piney, citrusy, mild hoppy, sweet, and very mild bitter finish.

D: the brew was really easy drinking and thought it was a solid pale ale.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This beer pours a dull orange color with a large foamy semi tan head. Tons of lacing. Head maintains itself well.

Aroma is somewhat citrusy but much more grassy than I was expecting. A sweet woody flavor is in there. A roasted malt smell rounds it out.

Taste begins much sweeter than I thought it would be. The sweetness is honeyish but also somewhat orangey. A piney bitterness comes in and balances nicely. Finish is really grassy and huge on the hops. Not really any resiny or oily hops in there, just a straightforward grassy flavor.

Mouthfeel is solid. Hops come in and out at somewhat odd times and the malt precense seems to be more than what I thought it would be. Body is nicely carbonated but could use a bit more backbone.

Fairly drinkable. The finish is rough at first but I was craving it by the end. Still, this wasn't up to par with the other "hop harvest" beers I've tried this year (Founder's, Sierra Nevada).

A - 1" off-white head. Good retention, a little lace. Clean, bronze hued beer.

S - Excellent fresh hop aroma. Clean. Everything associated with a great hop aroma is present.

T - Citrus. Lemon peel. Clean. Light malt backbone. Long, bitter finish. Much hoppier than any APA I have had and hoppier than some IPA's.

M - Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

D - The drinkability was good. Not my favorite Great Divide beer, but a good one none the less.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Leaves one finger of a tan rocky head that has very good retention, and it leaves sheets of very good lacing. Body is orange amber.

Smell - subtle aroma of grassy, herbal hops and some toasty malt biscuits. Slight scent of pine resin and citrus.

Taste - much like the smell. A subtle flood of herbal, grassy hops with a soft backbone of toasty malt biscuits. Some pine resin on the finish, as well as a metallic taste.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, and semi-dry.

Drinkability - this is a good ale, but it is rather subdued, and so I don't find it to be sessionable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nose: As one would expect from a beer called Fresh Hop Ale, there is a ton of hop aromas on the nose right out of the glass. It's very citrusy and clean smelling with a bit of pungency from this abundance of hops. Finally, there are lots of grassy and bitter grapefruit components present in the end that almost confuse you into thinking it's a double.

Appearance: The FHA pours a warm coppery orange color with a nice subtle (yet rocky) tan colored head. The presence of carbonation is visible as you hold the glass up to a light. There is a very nice foamy three finger head, which on the top, almost looks like frothed milk. As the head settles, it hangs on to the side of the glass leaving its fair share of lacing.

Taste: There's not as much carbonation on the tongue as you would expect from a beer with this much head. Unlike a lot of other hoppy beers along these lines, though, there is a good amount of flavor coming through. The citrus components that I got on the nose don't fully translate to the palate. These hops have a much grassier or pine needle quality than those others.

Palate: The mouth feel on this one ranges between light and medium bodied in that your mouth wants it to be a potent Imperial IPA, but that fact is that it's just a Pale Ale with lots of hops. It coats the tongue nicely, though, and never leaves you needing more bitterness.

Overall: The beauty of this beer is that it's not considered an Imperial IPA - it's a Pale Ale. This difference alone brings the alcohol content down 3% from its older brother, the Hercules Double IPA, which I prefer greatly over this. The problem with the FHA being a Pale Ale, however, is that hop heads will really wish there was more going on in this glass if it's going to include lots of fresh hops. You are basically getting 75% of the experience of a double IPA.

Ultimately, this is a really nice beer because it can be a lower alcohol percentage beer while still hanging on to a lot of the same hoppy characteristics of a double. And to be perfectly honest, it truly is better than a lot of the "Imperial" IPAs I've had from other breweries around the world.

A- a beautiful golden amber with a creamy white head. Incredible retention and if lacing throughout.

S- a pleasant somewhat mild hop aroma. Hard to detect specific aromas. Some metallic notes on the first few sips.

T- mild just like the aroma. Was expecting more hop flavor for a fresh hop ale.

M- a little thinner but it makes it easier drinking

O-this isn't a bad ale but when compared to other fresh hops ales it comes up a little short. Best by date of 30 December makes me think this bottle is just past its prime. Will have to try it again next year.

Autumnal copper with golden edges. Frothy, cottony, eggshell white head with good lacing. Pine sap and citrus hop nose mixed butterscotch. Light hop bitterness up front. Sweet shortbread cookie and butterscotch malt come on strong. Light tropical fruitiness. Piny and herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Maltier than expected and the hops don't seem as "fresh" as other harvest ales. Still good, just not overwhelming. Medium body with a low carbonated, casky feel.

22oz bottle into Duvel green tulip. Split with a friend. Big thanks to StormKing47 for this one.

A: Pours an orangeish-amber color with a couple fingers of off-white head that slowly receded into a thin bubbly film that left a fairly thick sheet of sticky lacing down the glass.
S: Light notes of citrus hops, pineapple and grapefruit. Not much malt, but there is a little bit of cracker or bread crust.
T: Follows the nose except the hops are a little less citrusy and a little more herbal and earthy. Finish has a touch of malty sweetness and the aftertaste is lightly bitter.
M: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel and even carbonation. Not overly sticky, syrupy or dry.
D: Overall I'd buy this occasionally if it were local, but there are plenty of west coast APA's that I'd probably rather drink. Good but not memorable.

1581st Review on BA
Bottle to Stemmed Tulip
22oz

Bottle dated Oct 4 2012
Purchased at Party House Liquor, Chino Hills, CA ($8.99, I overpaid I think)

App- A nice and medium looking amber color with some good highlights and a bit shimmery. Had a nice 1-1/2 finger white capped head that stuck around for a bit and left a nice cling/lace trail. A nice looking beer in the glass.

Smell- Its an okay pale ale for me. I think im not used to Wet hopped pales yet. The thick hop notes intermixed with the base malts create a fairly caramel rich nose that isnt really my thing.

Taste- Along with the nose, this flavor profile doesnt really do it for me. With my pale ales I like them to be a bit brighter and lusher. This was thick with caramel malts and tinges of bitter. Was a bit thick on the flavors but guess that comes with wet-hopped I am noticing.

Mouth- I can appreciate the feel on this one. GD likes to amplify their flavors and this was no different. A bit too thick of a body but semi-works on this one. The carbonation is a bit lush and creamy like a fuller IPA/DIPA vs. this style. I generally liked it though.

Drink- I will say I am usually excited for GD beers. Although besides the Yeti lineup my fervor is waining for some other beers in the series. May have to try to land things in the 12oz size before going 22oz. Probably wont have this one next year.

On tap at the Flying Saucer.

Clear, orange-amber in color. Generous, off-white head.

Very hoppy aroma, citrus & grass. Malt very much second fiddle - hints of caramel/molasses?

Taste was a bit of a let down for me, in that I expected more from the hops. They were definately showcased, but seemed mild and well balanced.

Body was light, with medium carbonation. A bit drying, but still quite refreshing.

Overall, may be a case of too high of an expectation. Beer is quite good. What is odd, is that the bottle version seems hoppier to me. A bit smoother as well.

Bottle pours a light amber with a nice, fluffy couple inches of head. Very soapy lacing left on the side of the glass. Smell is hops, but less than I was expecting. There are more hops in the taste, but they are more 'watery' for the lack of a better term. The beer seems to have no edge to it. A very easy drinking and way too easy to finish beer. But not much more than that.

Golden, slightly amber colored. A nice pillowy head with good retention. Leaves a nice lacing down the glass.

Fresh hops just have a certain aroma. It has this sweet yes balanced bitter nose. It's hard to explain but this is dead on for the harvest ales.

A light malty amber mouth, that finishes sharply bitter. Earthy and citrus hops, very oily and extremely bitter.

Medium body, good amount of carbonation. Feels more than 6.1% which is a touch of a disappointment.

Rather easy drinking beer. Just right for a pale ale.

Overall a really tasty beer. Bottled October 4th and consumed the 16 so I can't really find a fresher beer. At 6.99 this is just way too freaking expensive though. A 22 dollar 6 pack and lets not forget sierra makes a better fresh harvest for $4 for 24oz. Goose island makes a 6 pack for something like 8 bucks that's again better than this.

Appearance - This is a nice, bright orange in color with an easy, gorgeous white head that showed nice retention.

Smell - The hops are clean if a little dull and I really don't get much of the malt. The aroma is good it just lacks diversity.

Taste - The malts sweeten up a bit at the taste but again they are a bit bland. The hops are good though. They aren't very fruity but have a nice, leafy character that is a bit heavy at times but satisfies nevertheless.

Mouthfeel - This is definitely medium-bodied with some mild but firm carbonation and a velvety, smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability - The feel in the cheeks really made this for me. I really like this brewery but this was one of their lesser offerings. It was good but not great.

Served in a tumbler at The Tribes.

The Accidental Highway to Hell Tour continues! This stop pours a clear straw-amber topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises pine, lemon zest, light caramel, light biscuit, and grass. The taste brings in more of the same, but with more biscuit and some light celery (or some form of cellulose, anyway) in the back. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a smooth feel, and a kinda dry finish. Overall, a solid, if not wholly distinctive, fresh hop brew. Good times.
