Hop Harvest Ale

For the September '15 shop brew session, I contacted a friend who had a small hop yard and he brought up a shipment of some dried and some freshly harvested hops to use for this brew. I created a recipe for a rich amber ale that uses these fresh hops in the finishing stages to maximize aroma contribution and because we didn't have lab numbers for alpha acids or cohumulone.
