Wet Hopped IPA
We received our shipment of fresh WET hops on Thursday night and brewed the upcoming Wet-Hopped IPA. This beast boasts 35 pounds of fresh cascade, chinook & willamette Colorado grown hops thanks to Rising Hops Farm in Paonia, CO.
The wet hopped IPA will land around 8% ABV and showcases english malts to support the fresh hop finish.
In all honesty the brew was very labor intensive, created a ton of clogged pipes and generally instigated a lingering layer of expletives hovering over the brewhouse!
Deep down we were secretly wondering (hoping) that the beer would turn out "ok" (instead of awesome) so we wouldn't feel obligated to go through this process next harvest season.
We have been monitoring the brew and it's looking to be pretty darn tasty so it looks like the beer drinkers are going to win and we will definitely be obligated to brew it again next year. So congratulations to you!
Stay tuned for the release date around the week of September 14th!
