Sierra Nevada – Hop Hunter IPA

Hop Hunter IPA harnesses the complex flavors of just-picked hops through an all-new method of steam distilling wet hops before they even leave the fields. This revolutionary technique captures and intensifies the natural flavors, creating a unique and intensely aromatic beer. Our custom process gathers pure hop oil which, when combined with traditional whole-cone hops in the brew kettle and in our Hop Torpedo, makes for an incredible IPA experience.

New Belgium – Ranger IPA

Ever met a New Belgium Beer Ranger? They are our beloved folks out in the field. Spanning all 29 of our states from the Pacific to the Atlantic, our Beer Rangers do their best to protect, to pour and to partake. And explore many a beer from many a brewery, they do.

Bring out the hops! This clear amber beauty bursts at the starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish, Ranger is a sessionable splendor for all you hopinistas. Thank your Beer Ranger!

VISUAL: Light veil over this amber beauty
AROMA: Bursts with an abundance of hops (citrus, floral and fruity)
FLAVOR: Pale and caramel malts harmonize with hop flavor from start to finish- yet finishes deliciously bitter.
MOUTHFEEL: Bitter and dry hop finish- imbalanced yet sessionable!
BODY: Medium

Yeast: Ale yeast
Hops: Chinook, Simcoe, Cascade
Malts: Pale, C-120
Special processing: Dry-Hopping with Cascade In Dry hopping, the hops are never exposed to heat, so the highly volatile hop aroma compounds remain in the beer. Hop essential oils like myrcene (are proportionately higher they give intense pungent citrus, grassy and pine aromas). Also, since these compounds have never been exposed to heat they tend to be released by body temperatures- hence the HOP BURP.
