A Note on This Beer
It’s Fresh Hop season, baby!
In-the-know craft fans wait all year for these hyper-seasonal brews! For those of you just discovering the annual style: to qualify as a “Fresh Hop” beer, brewers must get whole hop cones into the boil within a mere 24 hours of harvest!
This mad dash is well worth it! These seasonal sippers pack big, bright, herbaceous flavors — with only a fraction of the bitterness. Today’s Fresh Hop Pale Ale is an ideal example!
Fremont brewed Cowiche Canyon in partnership with the hop farmers situated in the Yakima gorge the beer is named after. In an active effort to expand Washington’s organic hop industry, the brewers picked select Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, and Ekuanot Hops and rapidly brewed them into the soft, sweet brew.
A dry hop with even more organic Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe imparts heightened, lush flavor. Vivid nuances of zesty orange and bright apricot flow through every sip. Grapefruit pith leads into verdant notes of soft grass and spiced pine with swirls of smoke throughout.
Stock up on this rare release quickly — or you’ll have to wait a year for your next chance to taste this sensational, seasonal brew!
Cowiche Canyon has medaled in the Fresh Hop Ale Festival five times, including two gold medals and a Best in Show award!
