A cousin of the Ichthyosaur IPA – made with the same recipe but we used fresh hops. Wonderfully aromatic and full of fresh hop taste. If you’re a hophead, you’ll like this one!

It's October, and the Great Basin Brewery has a fresh hopped offering. It's a hop-head's dream, it's the time of year when freshly harvested hops can be made into the freshest and most delicious IPA, the Fresh Hop Bomb. I couldn't have been happier than to run into this brew.
The appearance was clear and dark tan, the head was unexceptional, but the lacing was substantial, a solid sheet in places. The nose was to die for. Fresh, strong citrus and floral combination, grassy aroma notes, reminds you of walking outside on a fall afternoon.
The taste followed the nose, substantial gritty hoppiness, grapefruit bitter bite with some piney overtones, plenty of floral notes surrounding the citrus core. Full flavor leading to a clean finish, just enough biscuity malt to add the needed balance.
Mouthfeel was definitely into the puckerish range, medium bodied,little alcohol warmth noticeable. Drinkability was terrific. Very satisfying, pairing well with garlic fries and garlicy salad dressing. Should have stayed and had more.

I had this at the Sparks location.
A: Golden/copper with a huge white head that fades and belgian lace.
S: As good as it gets. Huge citrus and pine character. Grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and spruce.
T: Hop forward, lots of citrus. Some malt in the back. A smooth bitterness, not harsh at all.
M: Medium bodied; not too hop forward, not too malty.
O: This stacks up against Pliny, Knuckle Sandwich, etc. It's a shame it's not in bottles. I greatly prefer this over Icky.
