Hop Harvest IPA was brewed with fresh Centennial and El Dorado hops from CLS Farms in Yakima Washington. The whole leaf hops were professionally grown, harvested and dried but they were never bailed or pelletized. Bailing and pelletizing hops crushes the lupulin gland, which can decrease the aroma by approximately 5%, so these hops are extremely aromatic! This IPA is golden amber in color, with a well-balanced malt body, and an amazing tropical and piney hop flavor and aroma.
This Hop Harvest IPA was brewed as part of our Community Partnership program with MEIC.
