Had at Coopers on tap (from notes). Fairly clear straw gold with with a 1” clingy off white foam collar. Fruity, citrusy nose with traces of vegetal from the hops. On the palate there are more hop flavors – fruit, melon, tropical, citrus, light vegetal – than bitterness. The flavors are medium high and the bitterness is medium. Has a herbal dryness on the finish. Creamy medium body and carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Finally sitting down to actually write up a review based on my notes from back on 11/19/13. Poured out of a 22 oz brown bomber indicating that the hops used are "salmon safe" and with a best by date of 2/23/14. Poured into the IPA-specific Speigelau glass.

Appearance - Pours with a crystal-clear opaqueness and a blend of straw yellow and more golden amber hues, depending on how the light passes through. A steady and active stream of carbonation bubbles rises from the etching on the bottom of the glass to replenish a big, rocky two finger head. Retention is moderate, with the full head lasting only a couple minutes, and leaving a mottled sheet of giraffe-coat like lace around the glass. Eventually settles with a quarter-finger film across the top of the body.

Smell - A nice mix of pale malts and a cocktail of hops, with notes of earth, pine and citrus zest coming to the forefront. Some sweeter hop profiles are also faintly present, with some notes of floral nectar and wildflowers. However, it's not as pungent as I have come to expect from the wet hop style

Taste - The malt becomes a bit more present, with biscuit and and fresh bread providing a hearty base for the herbal and floral hop profiles. Light pine, fresh herbs and white peppercorn along with the predominant notes of floral sweetness. There is again some faint citrus, but it's very fleeting--certainly not the predominant flavor profile in this beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation with a mostly dry finish that still contains a touch of sweet.

Overall, a solid beer, but not really mind-blowing. Not only have I had better fresh hop ales, but I've had better beers out of the Hop Kitchen series from New Belgium. That being said, the pricing on this series is outstanding, and as long as that continues, I will continue to buy bottles from it.

A - Very nice clear honey, tons of near white head, lots of cling.

S - Compact. A little ocean. Hops there but lots of not so good things there too.

T - More malt that smell but still very briny and not super tasty.

M - Medium body, good carb, ok balance, ok finish.

D - Not my favorite. One is enough.

A golden hue, clear. It almost borders orange, but just does not make it.

Very fresh, the hops have a very mellow grass quality. The malt seems to harken to a kind of biscuity smell that makes me think of Fat Tire.

Here is what it is about. This does have that unique New Belgium malt flavor profile, and it is not chasing the sweet powerful IPA style that has exploded recently. It runs closer to a classic bitter hop IPA. This means it ends with a bite that some hate, some love.

Heavy enough to add some weight to the taste, but crisp enough to leave your mouth refreshed and scrubbed.

An excellent entry for IPAs, not following the crowd logic. Definitely not new, but well done (especially for the price and moral brewing).

"Fresh, aromatic, and green as a Leprechaun's skivvies, Certified Salmon Safe Oregon Hops are picked fresh off the vine and trucked directly to our brew kettle." Brewed in the style of a Wet Hop/Harvest Ale IPA. This is the third entry in New Belgium's Hop Kitchen series, available in 22 oz. bottles and limited draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a globe glass. Served north of 55º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours an off-white creamy froth head over a caramel-amber body. Carbonation is moderate and sparse, clarity is very high. Retention is good and lacing is light and spotty. 4

(Smell) The malt profile is biscuity caramel, very clean with a mellow body and a light sweetness. The hops provide a full lemon and grassy aroma and add a bit of body, but don't smell too much unlike a dry hop addition, as I've had dry hop varieties in beers that generate a very similar aroma. Potency is medium. 3.75

(Taste) The hop flavor diversifies somewhat with a slightly pinier and less lemony and grassy flavor and a more profound bitterness. The malt profile is lighter by comparison, a light biscuit pale malt with a moderate sweetness. Finishes mildly dry with a lingering resin bitterness. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is smooth, chewy, oily. Carbonation adds some froth and fullness to the texture. Body is a -medium for the style, -medium overall. Alcohol presence is light. 3.75

(Overall) Ultimately it comes out enjoyable, a nice, simple pale ale with an equally enjoyable mild hop selection that provides a subtle lemony and herbal note. I'm not sure if I would be able to pick this out as a wet hop IPA if I wasn't told so, as it's so thoroughly light and drinkable. 3.75

Poured a orangish gold body with two finger head and lace patches. There is a touch of minor caramel sweetness and breadiness in the aroma that is dominated by a sharp, zesty citric hop aroma. Beer is the same as the citric, earthy, at times dirty hops dominate but there's enough bread/sweetness to prevent it from nuking my tastebuds and making the dry finish enjoyable. Not the most inventive or well-brewed IPA but it's solid and is a nice beer to relax with.

Pours out a clear apricot with a thin, white head. The aroma is really faint for what it is. Light touch of tropical fruit hops. Malt is subtle with a touch of New Belgium house yeast aroma. Flavor has light, crackery malts, and big tropical fruit from the hops. Mango and pineapple. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. New Belgium house taste isn't too overpowering. Mouthfeel isn't overbearingly heavy. Nice, prickly carbonation. Pretty solid beer overall.

Pours a clean, golden amber, with a thick head of white foam. Beautiful lace.

Nose is sweet, green hops -- very floral, rather than the usual citrus or pine.

Taste is very "green", as in grassy and earthy. I can relate to almost a bitter green tea somehow. Drinks very easily, with a medium to light body, but with plenty of bold hops goodness.

Well tasty and worthy. And at under $5 per bomber, a grand value. Kudos to NB for their reasonably-priced, approachable Hop Kitchen series.

From: John's Grocery, Iowa City, IA
Date: Best by 2014-02-23
Glass: Tulip

New Belgium's Fresh Hop IPA is an interesting, Germanic hop-like IPA with expressive pine and gentle grapefruit yielding some US influence, too. Generally enjoyable, and more like what Stone's attempt at a "German DIPA" should have been, this is another solid beer in the Hop Kitchen series, though I have to admit finding the first two more enjoyable.

Pours a substantial 3cm tall head of slightly off-white foam, made up of small bubbles, yielding a frothy-looking mass. Retention is excellent, with the head lasting about two minutes, eventually settling to a thin cap atop the body for the duration of the drink. Lacing is good, though not excellent, with some heavy streaks and spots clinging to the sides of the glass. Beer's body is a medium-dark golden orange color, with light bringing out golden yellow hues. Carbonation is visible through the transparent body, moderate in number and activity.

Aroma does not present itself clearly until the beer has warmed somewhat. At that point, it is quite nice, very "green," of Germanic hop character, featuring fairly dank woodsy and spicy hops, pine, dried cut grasses, fruity notes, and, somewhat surprisingly, seaweed.

Flavor of woodsy, piney, herbal, and spicy hops with hints of citrus (primarily bitter grapefruit). Front of palate finds woodsy, herbal hop character with strong pine and lesser grapefruit flavor, with a slight malt sweetness in the background. Mid-palate of woodsy, herbal hop character with some strong pine and peppery spiciness, lesser dried grass, and maybe a hint of grapefruit. Back of palate experiences moderate bitterness, leafy green woodsy hops, pine, moderate spiciness, and a hint of grapefruit. Aftertaste is of moderate, but lingering bitterness with hints of grapefruit and caramel malt influenced sweetness.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium to medium-high intensity, resulting in a borderline fizzy, but primarily foamy (4/5) and smooth (1/5) mouthfeel. Closes moderately dry, with moderate to moderate-light stickiness on the palate.

Served in a snifter.

Bright gold body, slightly hazy. Love the pillowy two finger's of white foam.

Clean, earthy, and resin-y bouquet. For being so straightforward, almost unassuming, the aromas are big, and I really enjoy it.

Same type of clean palate like the nose. Again it is earthy, and the malt is bready. Resin profiles are all over the finish. Let it warm and a little garlic - like and grapefruit note pokes through mid-palate. Interesting!

Nice heft. Solid medium body that is a little more slick than creamy. Decent dryness too.

What a well made and tasty IPA! Apart, these flavors would be some of the more, average notes, in a drink. Here, combined, and amped up, make for a pleasing final product.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a DFH signature glass. Best fore 23 February 2014.

A: Clear and light-colored, with a finger of fluffy white head.

S: Lightly hoppy, with a fresh-earthy must I've come to associate with 'fresh hop' beers. Citrus peel, minerals.

T/M/O: Tasty. There may not be a lot going on, but the crisp-sweet malt base supports the savory, floral hops very well. Drinkable, enjoyable, and straightforward. Recommended.

22 oz. bottled poured into a pub glass.

A – Light Gold, with a generous head. Left nice laces during consumption. Clear, no sediment. Definitely a good looking beer

S – Bright hops, slight earthy pine and citrus.

T – Bitter hops, hops tend to over power all other flavors. Not overly hoppy, just can't taste much else. Very 1 dimensional

M – Clean finish, lingering dirty hops is the only way i can describe it. It's more the earthiness that shines through on the finish.

O - Overall, not a bad IPA, especially for the price. Not big on the balance, the hops are there, but no big citrus or pine to balance it. The hops aren't over powering, however, so it's kind of ho hum. For a bomber, the price is spot on, so a good every day IPA. Not like the big Ruination type beers however. I would drink it again.

Bought at Liquor Shed, best by Feb 23, 2014.

A nice medium gold pour, 2 finger head of foam that leaves some lacing behind.

The smell is pretty hoppy..notes of pine & grapefruit with some grass thrown in for good measure. A light sweetness sits firmly in the background.

First sip in and I get that it isn't quite as hoppy as the smell suggested. I get some citrus mixed with the grass and pine but they seem to bring more bitterness than actual hoppy flavours. The malt is a bit more apparent; notes of biscuit and hints of caramel.

The mouthfeel is good, nice medium body, sort of lightish on the carbonation.

There are no weird ingredients thrown in this brew but it still doesn't hit my palate on all cylinders. It's not bad though.

Considering this year (2013) crop of Fresh Hop IPA's this was not as good as others I tried (Deschutes, McMinamins) but still a very good beer ... chalk my review up as NW bias.

A- Clear, orange

S- Robust, earthly, not 'fresh' though disappointingly

T- Smooth, citrus notes, pine

M- Creamy tart

Overall a fantastic beer, I would get again, however $5/pint is high knowing what else is out there but no regrets.

Nice fresh hop IPA. Pours a crystal clear dark gold color with a big white head. Head retention is fairly good. There is some spotty lacing on the glass.

Fairly mild grassy and piney hop aroma

Tastes good. Piney, oily hops predominate with some grassy hops present. Moderate bitterness with good flavor.

Mouthfeel is crisp and a little oily. Bitterness is just right.

Not an outstanding IPA but very refreshing and goes down easy.

Poured into a New Belgium globe glass.

Look: Shiny copper. Vanilla ice cream head. Thick foamy lacing.

Aroma: Spicy, piny, hoppy.

Taste: Sweetness comes out and coats some piny hops with lime citrus. Fruity sweetness comes out in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Sticky and smooth?

Overall: Didn't like it at first, then liked it more and more.

Poured a nice clear amber with a one finger white head that receded and left a bit of lacing down the glass. A nice American IPA look, very true to form. Scents of citrus pith, pine, grapefruit, toasty and grainy malts and some faint caramel, all mingled with that earthy, dirty New Belgium yeast. A nice hop bomb West Coast IPA nose, but taken down a little by that earthy yeast that does most IPAs no favors. The taste follows the aroma. Citrus pith, bitter pine resin upfront, with floral hops on the finish and aftertaste, melding with a plain bitter flavor. As the beer warms it gets a bit sweeter and maltier, with caramel malt flavors coming out. The hop profile shifts to being entirely dominated by citrus pith and floral hops. Earthy flavors from the yeast are present throughout, no matter the temperature, though they don't detract too much. It's not bad. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a semi-drying finish. Pretty on point for an IPA, though maybe a bit more drying than usual. Easy to drink though. Overall this is a pretty good American IPA. It has the strong West Coast hop profile I enjoy, balances it with malt decently, but is brought down slightly by that earthy yeast. It just doesn't work in beers like this one.

Bomber to a specialty ipa glass- '130929022,' really hoping this wasn't bottled on the 92nd day this year. 'Salmon safe?' finally, a beer you can feed to your fish

Pours a pale gold, especially at the bottom, with two fingers of creamy white head. Retention isn't bad and there's not too bad of lacing. Very mild carbonation stemming from the center of the glass, full transparency. not too bad looking

Smells of very floral and earthy hops, a little minty even. A bit of a fruit profile- some citrus hidden in the very back. Sweet and slightly caramely malt backbone holds everything together. Interested in the hop blend, this minty floral smell is something I've been finding in all the new ipas I've been reviewing for some reason

Taste falls well short of the nose, hop profile translates into something completely different. The floral notes are still there (sort of) but drown and subjugated by bready malts. A touch of alcohol in the end

Feel is a medium body, pretty crisp. Leaves a strange sting in the top back of my mouth, not the most drinkable but pretty tolerable

Overall I was on board until the taste. Poorly balanced, weak hop and too strong of malts. Might be an old bottle? These are pretty new to my stores shelf though. Worth a try, definitely not buying any more however

Best by 2/23/14.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy light tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and some earthy herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a more citrus forward hop presence that comes through especially well in the flavors.

Picked up tonight at the COOP for $4ish... Poured into my HotD goblet .. nice long lasting off white head.. the brew is clear dark golden.

Nose is a big hoppy mash-up... hay/grassy and something spicy... pithy citrus...

Flavor is earthy NB toasty maltiness... that malt combines well with the grassy hops.. some background grapefruity bitterness helps balance the overall picture.

Good body and carbonation.. could use more bitterness from front to back.

Don't hate on this one... Just get it sooner than later... The Fresh-Hoppiness will go away quickly.

Maybe I just don't understand this brew. I really wanted to enjoy this fresh hop IPA. That's one of my favorite styles of beer! Just really bland and doesn't taste fresh at all. The aroma is the only thing worse than the taste. It does look nice though :)

Had on tap at Sticks and Stones tonight.Poured into a Fat Tire goblet an orange tinged lighter golden with tightly formed half finger white head atop.Aromas of grapefruit rind and leafy hops over top of a sweet biscuit malt base.Fresh grapefruit and lemony hops hit nicely upfront on the palate with underlying leafy "greeness",a biscuit malt base lends mild sweetness and breadiness underneath.I like the fruitiness from the hops here,I could have drank alot of this tonight.

Appearance: pours a lighter shade of orange with a 1/2" head that falls quickly to some large surface bubbles.

Smell: floral hops and citrus aromas rise from the glass into the nose.

Taste: caramel, orange, pear, and a floral hop bitterness create a simple and straight forward IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Very crisp to start, a bit less crisp and a touch dry at the finish. Aftertaste is filled with fresh hop bitterness lingering in the mouth.

Overall: a very easy to quaff beer. Fresh hop flavors really make this beer a pleasure to drink as the simplicity of the flavor profile makes it very satisfying.

Nothing on the label suggests this part of New Belgum's Lips of Faith series. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing New Belgium label art and branded red/orange New Belgium cap acquired at Whole Foods HQ earlier today and served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are average; these New Belgium bomber releases usually disappoint (excepting La Folie and Le Terroir). Reviewed as a fresh hop IPA because it clearly identifies as such on the label.

Huge thanks to RockAZ for adding this beer properly: the name really is "Fresh Hop India Pale Ale" not "Fresh Hop IPA."

Served cold, straight from me fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a two finger wide head of white colour. Decent creaminess and thickness. Okay consistent lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. This beer has "legs." Head retention is pretty good - about 4-5 minutes.

Body colour is a clear translucent dark yellow of average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. Appears adequately carbonated.

Overall, it's a bit dull for an IPA. Not unique or special. There are no obvious flaws. Meh.

Sm: Floral hop character with some decent resinous notes. A bit herbal. Pale malts. Pilsner malts. Maybe pine. Hints of vague citrus. Pretty standard fare for an IPA, with some extra resinous character which I like. I do find some garlic/onion, which might turn some off.

No yeast character, alcohol, or spices are detectable. An inoffensive mundane aroma of average strength. There's nothing remarkable about it. Not unique or special. This is coming across pretty average so far.

T: Lots of oniony garlicky notes - especially on the climax. It's got some untamed hop bitterness in the third act as well, which brings it down. Pale malts. Pilsner malts. A dash of caramalt. Floral hop character. Restrained pine and resins. There isn't a great deal going on here, but it's quite a mess - there's little balance. It does have some loose cohesion, but it doesn't feel like a focused, deliberate flavour profile. Quite simple for an IPA. Beyond the reticent resinous character, I'm not finding much obvious benefit from the fresh hop brewing. Seems like a waste of a harvest.

Below average depth of flavour. Average flavour duration and intensity. Lacks complexity and subtlety. It's a lazy build for an IPA. The hop choices don't seem well-informed. There's no marriage of hops to malts. It's not a gestalt beer.

No yeast character comes through. I do get a bit of alcohol presence.

I actually like it more and more as it warms; it takes on a nice graham cracker note.

Mf: Overcarbonated. Lightly oily. Smooth. Somewhat sharp. Wet. Unrefreshing. Okay presence on the palate. Suits the flavour profile alright, but definitely doesn't feel custom-tailored to it. A bit too thick and full-bodied for the lack of depth of flavour. A bit overwhelming for what the flavour profile actually delivers.

Not astringent, harsh, gushed, boozy, or hot.

Dr: Another forgettable beer from New Belgium. Frankly, you could do worse than getting suckered in by New Belgium's seemingly attractive bomber pricing. This beer will find its fans. I have nothing against it. It's a drinkable IPA. The graham cracker note is a highlight for me, but this beer's overall lack of balance coupled with its simplicity really holds it back. I wouldn't recommend it to friends or purchase it again, but its price point makes it worth trying for the New Belgium fans out there. It's a pretty subpar fresh hop beer, but overall it's average. I'll have no trouble finishing the bomber alone.

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bottle.

Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a fizzy, soapy, one finger head. Just splotchy lacing and head retention.

Some earthy, piny aroma with a touch of light citrus. There is also a bit of garlin and onion in there which I like quite a bit.

More earth in the taste with the onion/garlic note becoming more prominent. Loads of pine with the citrus staying a little more supressed. A light caramel malt undertone with quite high bitterness that lingers long through the finish. Mouthfeel is a little watery I feel.

Overall, just an average beer from New Belgium. An ok IPA but nothing Earth shattering.
