Indeed's Fresh Hop Ale, fourth release from our newest Minneapolis brewery, their second seasonal. Brewed the same way as Town Hall's Fresh Hop and Surly's Wet, tons of hops, just picked, flown straightaway and dumped into the kettles. In fact, I think this one was brewed the very same day as Surly Wet, if we can go by Facebook posts and such.

It's a clear, golden hue, under a gorgeous, crystal white head, lace-leaving, looking lovely.

Aroma: Ah! Fantastic! Hints of tropical fruits, citrus, pine, and something …well, just beautiful. I'm a devoted hophead, and this is my crank, right here. Ah, glorious humulus lupulus!


Taste: Mmm! Yu-um! There's a special malt, only one, at work here, and it's identified as an Irish Stout malt. Why is the beer so pale and clear, then. There's things I don't fully understand. Someone will inevitably school me, or I'll figure it out, nonetheless. In any case, this Irish malt with the Centennial hops really brings forth nothing less than deliciousness. And at 5% ABV, there's nothing stopping the quaffing. Except the cost. Shipping out tremendous amounts of hops isn't cheap. Nothing good ever is.

It drinks wonderfully, it's lean bodied, full of zest and verve, and spills out nothing but happiness. Nicely bitter, but without any punishment. Damned delicious. Mmmm, I'm in hop-head heaven.

Here's what the brewery says about it: "Our first annual Fresh Hop offering is a sessionable single-malt pale ale brewed with Irish Stout Malt and wet Centennial hops harvested in the Yakima Valley less-than 24-hours before being added to this brew. Join us in celebrating the hop harvest and the beginning of fall." 5% ABV.

Served In: Pint Glass
