Fresh Hop ESB – Four Winds Brewing Company

Limited Brew

From the new Four Winds Brewing Company in Delta BC comes their very limited “Fresh Hop ESB”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange with a white head.  The aroma consists of malts, fruity orange and floral hops.  The flavour was of malts, orange, caramel and a fresh hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% and the IBU is 55.  For the average ESB this has a much bigger hops bitterness.  I personally prefer an ESB with a bigger bitterness and the fresh hops does a great job adding this flavour without being overpowering.
