Great Divide Brewing – Fresh Hop Pale Ale, Ep. 102

Grassy. Citrusy. Two words that describe Fresh Hop Pale Ale from the Great Divide Brewing Company out of Denver, Colorado. Fresh hops or “wet” hops are flown in from the Pacific Northwest overnight and are brewed the next day to ensure the highest quality possible. We have to say that you can truly taste a distinct difference the minute you put this beer to you mouth, both in aroma and taste. Unfortunately this is a seasonal beer and best enjoyed right away as time will certainly change the freshness of this beer.

    Hey guys,
    I totally agree with you on the fact that freshops beers are wonderfully fresh and deicious. Living in WA state makes the availability of these beers pretty easy. There is a freshop event in Yakima where all the beers are brewed with hops less than 24 hours from field to pot. If you guys get the chance, come out this Fall, and enjoy a whole festival dedicated to freshop beer! Great job again guys. You Rock!

    Thanks Keith. I’ve always wanted to come out to the hop harvest. I’ll make it some day.
