Great Divide Fresh Hop Pale Ale ....

Tonight's beer is Fresh Hop Pale Ale from Great Divide Brewing Company.  The 1 pint, 6 ounce bottle shows 6.1% ABV and 55 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin, bone colored head.  Beer color is amber, with maybe a touch of orange.  The aroma is fairly mild with citrus, and maybe a hint of pine.  The citrus is in the taste as well, but the pine comes through a lot stronger than in the aroma.  There is a kind of green, grassy, freshness to the taste.  Vegetal.  Some malt to balance things out.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little grass and bitterness.  I really enjoyed this one - the fresh hop-forward taste was very interesting.
