Notes/Commercial Description:
Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop Ale is brewed from select organic hops grown in the Cowiche Canyon of the Yakima Valley which are harvested and placed into our kettle within 24 hours, creating a unique, once-a-year beer. We make Cowiche Canyon ale in partnership with hop-growing wizards from the Yakima Valley in an effort to expand the organic hop industry in Washington State… Because Organic Hops Matter. A portion of all sales fund the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy.

Down & Dirty: Organic Pale, Crystal-15, Carapils & Munich Malts with Organic Fresh Citra & Simcoe Hops (120 pounds per batch).

A: Pours a dark orange body. Mostly translucent with a bit of cloudiness. Yields a thick, dense, pillowy, bright white head that hangs around seemingly forever. Leaves incredible lacing. It doesn't get much better than this from an appearance standpoint.

S: Citra hops jump out of the bottle before even poured. Mango and tangerine dance around in the glass, backed with some pine and resinous hops.

T: Sweet exotic fruits dominate the upfront taste, which quickly transforms into a bitter, piney hop explosion. The finish is crisp and clean with lingering resin and tangerines.

M: Medium body. Crisp. Clean. Refreshing. Moderately high carbonation. Sticky and Prickly dryness.

O: This came to my doorstep with a ton of hype from a buddy that is local to Fremont, so I must admit that I was very excited going into this one. Boy, did this one deliver and actually exceeded the hype train that he was driving. A ton of juicy sweet character, but is not short on hop notes and complexity either. I wish I had more than just the two bottles. Big thanks Anthony!

L: Bright gold with a touch of haze and moderate carbonation streaming to the top. Big fluffy white head with excellent lacing on the sides of the glass.

A: Huge and fresh pine resin, mango, pineapple, and some clean grassiness. Crackery malt with a touch of candy sweetness and neutral yeast character.

T/M: Nice clean bitterness upfront, moves into big grassy, piney/citrus hops with some mango and pineapple to boot. Hop flavors blend with some light biscuit malt notes and some candylike character as well. Beer finishes bitter and dry, with lingering hop flavors.

Overall, one of the best American Pale Ales I have ever had, if not the best. The hop flavor and aroma is super juicy and resiny, the malt balances perfectly, and the whole package together is nothing short of world-class. I wish I could have swung another bottle, but I am glad to have tried one.
