Similar to last year, we will be embarking on a bold voyage of hop experimentation: our second annual Naked Hop Series!
A naked hop is the purest expression of its flavor and aroma, with little malt backbone to disguise the hop characteristics. This year, our Naked Hop series will explore Citra, Crystal and Mosaic hops. The final beer, Naked Threesome, combines these three hops flavors and aromas into one amazing beer.
We will be releasing our first in the series, Naked Hop #1: Citra, on Tuesday, May 2nd, on draft and in bottles at our taproom. Naked Hop #1 is hazy, unfiltered IPA bursting with orange and citrus flavor, highlighting the Citra hop over a light, crisp malt base.
The second in our series, Naked Hop #2: Crystal, will be released on Thursday, May 18th, on draft and in bottles at our taproom. Naked Hop #2 is bright, nuanced and every bit as exciting as #1.
Make sure to try all four beers in this year’s Naked Hop series!
