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

A - Pours a dark amber with an off-white head that lingers for a bit. Nice lacing on the glass left behind.

S - Has a decent nose, the hops lean towards pine & grass, but not overly complex.

T - Less hop than I was expecting, a lot more malt tones here.

M - Medium bodied beer with very little carbonation.

O - A good beer but I think I was expecting just a little more hop tones, especially in the taste, than what I got.

Lightly carbonated. Good color that is an amber golden. Smell is a very pleasant hoppy odor that teases the taste buds. Minimal floral hints. A real earthy simple scent. The taste is equally simple and straight forward. Just as I expected from the name. The hoppy bitterness is not compounded by further complexities. A delightful beer that is deserving of the name "fresh hops". I will be looking for this beer again.
