Hot Tip IPA
Towards the end of harvest, the beer writer still known as Stan Hieronymus swung by the brewery (#beernerdhumblebrag) for a little hang out. Among many other beer related things, Stan is a beacon of knowledge when it comes to hop varieties, old and new, American and elsewhere. And so, when he mentioned his interest in a new Oregon grown variety called Luminosa from Indie Hops (aka the breeders of Strata) we…ugh…played it cool and definitely didn’t frantically email Jim with a wanting/needing/must-possessing/do-anything-for-two-boxes type of tone. ANYWAYS. A couple months later, we proudly present to you this IPA with Luminosa (plus a little Citra) that exudes delicious notes of orange marmalade, yellow peach and lychee.
