I just picked this one up as a comparison to the rest of them. I honestly just became aware of Fresh hop beers this year. I don't know why it took so long! Anyway, this one is right up there with Founder's as far as I am concerned. I have had about 10 fresh hop beers this year and these were the two that stood out more than any.

Look: Beautiful, reddish bronze, a decent amount of head that leaves a nice level of lacing.

Smell: That is where it was lacking a bit, but had a nice mild hop aroma going on. Not as pungent as the Founder's but really that is the standard bearer.

Taste: The taste is much better than the nose would allow you to believe. Flowers, not too boozy, but just enough, it has that nice hop taste. Grassy and floral but a nice tartness that balances well with the mild amount of malts going on. This really is one of the better fresh hop beers I have had. No wonder Great Divide is a well regarded outfit!

Overall: My top two in fresh hop beers, I still think Founder's harvest edges this on out in flavor and aroma by a small margin. But this one is definitely a top notch beer.
