Part of the Deschutes Bond Street Series comes this fresh hop version of Mirror Pond, “This noble, fresh hop version of our classic American Pale Ale arose from a single plot of heirloom Cascade hops, revived by our brewers from the original rootstock developed at Oregon State University, grown by Goshie Farms in Oregon.”
These may be some of the hops that I saw harvested during the beer blogger conference in August. Boy did they smell good.
