Deschutes Hop Trip
Brewery: Deschutes Brewery
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Part of the Bond Street Series. This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 270 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers' farm outside Salem, Oregon will be added to the 50 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel brewed.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
A top notch wet hop ipa that goes down a treat
Another great beer from Deschutes
A cloudy copper/amber pour with a nice off white head. Fresh and malty aroma. Not as bitter a as I expected, but will a nice hop finish. Well balanced beer.
