Pale5.9% ABV40 IBU
Ooo la la. A new-to-us hop variety! We first heard about Idaho Gem a couple years back, but we didn’t get to rub any until last harvest. At the time, it smelled pleasant enough that we snagged some. We used lots from Gooding Farm in Parma, Idaho & CLS Farms in Moxee, WA. Per usual, we cut it with a little Citra – but this beer is 80% Idaho Gem on the hot side, and 75% on the Dry Hop. So what’s it all about? We get bartlett pear, pink starburst, white grapefruit, green plantains & wintergreen. What do you think?
