Fresh From The Farm – Newport Hops
Fresh Wet Hop India Pale Ale
7.1% ABV || 50 IBUs
22 oz. bottle
An unfiltered fresh/wet hopback IPA using Newport whole leaf hops fresh from the farm at GEMS Hops Farm in Carlisle, PA.
To be adventurous for this special, once a year beer, we did a decoction mash with a mix of our favorite malts, added generous amounts of fresh Comet hops in an extended hopback, then dry hopped with fresh partially dried 29% moisture hops.
Clean malt profile, balanced with a guava hop flavor and aroma. Finished with a sweet mouthfeel.
