Look How They Shine IPA
In the early ‘00s, Virgil Gamache Farms released an exciting new IPA hop. The rarely seen press release was odd, but catchy: “Look at the hops, look how they shine for you. And everything you brew. Yeah they are Amarillo. I came along. I grew a hop for you. And all the things you brew. They are named after Yellow.” Coldplay THEN stole the press release and turned it into a multiple platinum hit single and the rest is history. Irregardless (this is now a word), we still remember when Amarillo was the IT hop, long before Strata, Mosaic, Citra, & Simcoe. So we built a modern IPA with 2 Row, Pils, Wheat & Oats around some beautiful Amarillo lots from Roy Farms and Crosby Farms. We sprinkled in a little Citra & Chinook to round it out – but this beer is all about Amarillo, and that juicy, bright citrus hop character. Oh yeah, your pith and nose, turn into something beautiful. For you, we’d brew ourselves dry.
