Portland Fresh Hop Beer Fest 2015

I got over to the Portland Fresh Hop Beer Fest last night with Jeanette, Audrey and Mike. This was the 12th year for this beer fest but the first time me. This fest features all fresh hopped beer and only happens at harvest time. Generally the fresh hops are more aromatic then dry hops normally use in brewing. We sampled many pale ales and IPAs that were single or multi hopped. The single hop beers were nice in that it allowed you to see what a particular hop tasted like. So the event was a lot of fun and a good chance to do more education of my palate.
