Citra Slicker Wet Hop IPA
Bale Breaker Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Fresh off the Farm Hops: 100% farm-fresh Citra Hops, harvested straight from the field and dropped in the brew kettle in JUST 4 MINUTES! Freshest Flavor to Savor: Crisp, juicy notes of ripe tangerines, tropical star fruit, pure evergreen pine, and a dash of dank all come together under one uber-clean, Fresh Hop roof.
When Donnie and Marie said, “I’m a little bit country, and I’m a little bit rock n’ roll,” I really felt that.
I have roots that tie me to small farm towns just as much as I’m tethered to the bustling metropolis of Seattle. So, I especially love it when I get a beer that’s a little bit of both, too.
And every year around September and October, the friendly farm-town folks at Bale Breaker Brewing team up with the big city brewers at Seattle’s Cloudburst to give us just that!
Bale Breaker is located in the heart of hop country in the Yakima Valley. That means they’ve got a leg up on nearly every other brewery in the nation when it comes to the freshness of hops.
So when Cloudburst comes out to the field to help craft today’s heavily dry-hopped, 2019 Vintage of Citra Slicker Wet Hop IPA, they take the meaning of “Fresh Hop” to a whole new level.
Citra Slicker is ALL about the fresh, farm-grown flavor of tangy Citra Hops — they handpick them at Loftus Ranches down the road and then pour ‘em into the brew kettle a mere 4 minutes later!
In 4 minutes, you probably couldn’t even write 5 emails! In 4 minutes, you could just barely toast 2 and a half Pop-Tarts. Hell, some city blocks take longer than 4 minutes just to walk them!
Unless you live in the Yakima Valley, too, it’s practically impossible to get any closer to the pure piney-citrus flavor of these Citra Hops! And since this is the very first year this Fresh Hop wonder is leaving the taproom in 16oz. cans, you’ve got a chance to get closer than you ever have before.
Be one of the first people outside of Washington state to get a taste of Citra Slicker and show your buddies what a little bit of country mixed with rock n’ roll can do to a hoppy brew!
