Cool Your Jets IPA
It has recently come to our attention that we have New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops on our 2018 hop contract. We have no idea how we missed this – perhaps it was selective blindness or some type of cognitive unlearning. Anyways, when we found out, we were all like “Um. Hold. The. Phone. WHAT THE WHAT?!? NO. YES? YOU’RE FUCKING WITH US. FUCK YOU! YOU’RE BEING AN ASSHOLE RIGHT NOW. SERIOUSLY?!? FSHHHH. HOW? WHO?!? WHY? OKAY!!” and Yakima Chief Hops were all like “Dudes. Cal – Calm down. Take it easy. Are you breathing? shhh. Take a deep breath and use your quiet voices. Chill please. STOP. COOL YOUR JETS. JESUS. What have we done.” And then afterwards we were all like, ”let’s make an IPA with Pilsner and 2 Row base malt and hop it with mostly Nelson Sauvin, plus a little Citra & Mosaic.” So we did.
