Life On Tap Episode #340: Origin Story (Threes Brewing Origin Story, Harvest Fresh Hop Ale)

Fresh Hop/Harvest Ales are a wonder to sample, and Threes Brewing Origin Story is no different, featuring Cascade hops from Weathertop Hops.

Threes Brewing Origin Story

STYLE: Harvest Fresh Hop Ale (American Pale Ale)
INGREDIENTS: Fresh Cascade Hops from Weathertop Farms
ABV: 5.6%
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.


Translucent and burnt yellow/light orange in color with a big, fluffy head.


Pine leads off with floral and fruit notes following up.


Muted citrus note (tangerine), that meets floral and a gentle hint of pine from the aroma.


Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel and softer carbonation.


I did not know it was Cascade when I tasted it, but this expression of it was tasty and intriguing on many levels. While I do not make it out for many Fresh Hop/Harvest releases, I probably should, as it is such a unique way of sampling a specific lot of the featured hop. This could go with various different bar/pub food, but I would prefer to taste these types of beers without any accompaniment.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
