High Quality Knock Off IPA
We have a source, an extremely reliable hook up if you will – Yakima Chief Hops – that occasionally reaches out with secret, new, experimental products for us to try and WE 👏 ARE 👏 HERE 👏 FOR 👏 IT. If you’re not constantly thinking/tinkering/creating/evolving – from the brewing side to the supply side – then you’re not trying hard enough. This go around we utilized Experimental TR702, which is a concentrated Citra Whirlpool Oil to replace that large addition of hops we typically use post boil, in hopes of at least an equally impactful variety expression while also increasing in yield. We added hop pellets to the kettle and dry-hop like we always do – in this case, mostly Citra plus a little Simcoe & Chinook – so the only difference is removing 18 pounds of Whirlpool hops for 2 pounds of pure hop oil. Can you smell and taste the difference? CAN YOU REALLY THO?!
