I had a bottle of this at Rogues Ale House in San Francisco. I was hoping for a fresh hop or harvest ale from the name, but in all ways this was more an American Pale Ale, not bad but not really the fresh hop character the label might imply.

The beer was darker than you'd guess it would be, kind of amber color with a thick foam from each pour, all sorts of lacing on the glass. The aroma is well balanced, caramelly malt sweetness and some mild floral hops. The taste is malty in the front end, no juicy green hops flavor which you'd expect although there is a slightly bitter hops profile in the back end. Overall too balanced for a "wet hop" ale, not bad in any way but disappointing in that I wanted fresh hops flavors.

Poured from Bottle into Imperial Pint glass.

Pours a clear orange-copper color with a couple fingers of off-white head that leaves a heavy layer atop the glass. The aroma is grapefruit, caramel malt and some alcohol. The flavor is grapefruit hoppiness upfront and quickly develops into a strong malt flavor and finishes sweet and slightly dry. Its medium bodied and softly carbonated. This beer needs more hops in the nose and a more consistent hop flavor especially since its fresh hopped. I'm more looking for hop bombs from Fresh Hop ales and this just wasn't that. This beer should certainly be considered an American Pale.

Found a nice fresh bottle at New Seasons... a brand new fresh hop ale from Rogue with their Independent and Revolution hops.... it is however on tap at their pub locations as well. I grabbed a bottle.

- Nice dark semi-cloudy amber color with foamy white head that leaves a bit of lacing all about. Looks sweet and rich.

- This fluid is masking its goodness... a very light mild caramel scent with a bare hint of fresh hops.. slightly floral and zingy bitter. Must be a characteristic of wet hops.

- A well balanced ale.. packed with a pleasant malt profile of caramel and slight sweetness.... and not really a hop bomb of sorts... but the bitter portion is there with a nice pull of pine and grass.

- Little chewy and tongue curling because of the bitterness.

- Overall a very well balanced ale... balanced well with malt and pine hop bitter goodness. Not a bad fresh hop ale, and I am sure different from all the rest.
