Fresh Hop results

Fresh Hop ale with Crystal hopsOne of the better brews I’ve managed this year, no question. There’s a candy citrus element, so strong that it might veer towards juice. I’m fairly confident that this comes from the fresh hop element-which I completely overdid. No remorse. It is also possible that there is a honey/clover note. It works very nicely. There’s also a touch of chocolate-but the malts are subdued quite a bit- and then it finishes really clean. The hops are all over this beer but without the intense bitterness that dried hops would bring. Beer is super clear, visually as well.
Anyway, it’s awesome so here’s the recipe:

Steeping malts:
1 lb C40
.75 Honey
1 lb Victory

7 lb LME
1 lb LM dry

1.25 oz Summit hops @ 60
5.5/8th oz Crystal hops @ 20

Ale yeast from Hopworks



Final Gravity:

ABV of about 7.04%
