"Official Beer" Poll (Update)

Over the weekend, I posted a poll about what you would select as Oregon's official beer, were Oregon to create such a thing. As I write this, 67 of you have voted, and the results are slightly surprising. The front-runner, IPA, is not that surprising; it's the most popular style among craft beer fans (who are in turn the kinds of people who read blogs about beer). But the second-place style is interesting: fresh hop ales. Have a look:
33 - IPA
13 - Fresh hop ale
/8 - Hefeweizen
13 - all other styles (none higher than 3)
And this is for a style that wasn't more than a rare oddity five years ago. I think we may be onto something. If you want to vote, here's the poll:
