A Note on This Beer
Aroma: Like taking a whiff of a freshly-crushed hop cone — earthy and dank AF. Taste: Herbaceous mint and undertones of black currant and blood orange greet the taste buds before sappy pine steals the show with a West Coast-style bitter bite. Mouthfeel: A smooth-sippin’ body and clean finish disguise the mighty 7.3% ABV.
Hopheads, you’re gonna want to call in sick and play hooky, because there is only one thing you should be doing this time of year: drinking Fresh Hop beers!
Why? The peak evergreen and citrus flavors of freshly-plucked hops are unrivaled, and they're only possible for 3 short weeks every year! And since the Pacific Northwest is home to most of the country's hops, the harvest here is like a freakin' holiday complete with festivals and limited releases.
So email your boss now and let him know you can't make it in on Monday, because we’re bringing the PNW hop party right to your door with today’s Killer Green Fresh Hop Imperial IPA.
The Oregon Beer Award medal-winning brewers at Double Mountain are known as some of the best hop handlers in the Northwest. They drive a mere 40 minutes to a hop farm in the Willamette Valley to pick resiny Brewers Gold Hops at their freshest. Then, they truck these sticky nuggets back to their brewery and toss ‘em into the boil in less than 2 hours!
Their proximity to the farm is why Craft Beer and Brewing calls them a “fresh-hops heaven during the harvest season.”
And I agree — it feels like I’ve died and gone to hop heaven with this potent sipper!
So c'mon, take some much needed time for yourself and relax with your own slice of hop heaven. Your work will still be there on Monday, but it's about 365 days until the next Fresh Hop Season starts!
