A Note on This Beer
Fresh IIPA V49 marks the first time I’ve tasted Styrian Dragon and Styrian Wolf Hops in ANY beer!
Yes, these hops sound like they belong to the families on Game of Thrones. They’re actually very new — and very rare — Slovenian varieties with some pretty epic floral and berry flavors, punctuated with notes of tropical citrus.
To deepen the complexity even further, the Hubbard’s Cave crew brewed the Styrian varieties alongside a helping of Simcoe Hops. And, wow! The result is a very smooth IIPA that spills grapefruit-rose aromas and flows with red berry, tangerine, and fresh pine flavors. It finishes with a cleansing, delectable bitterness that leaves you wanting more.
Like all of their Fresh IIPA releases though, this one is a limited run only. Once it’s all gone, I know I — for one — will always be thankful for my first foray into the flavorful world of Styrian Hops.
Chicago Tribune calls out the Fresh IIPA series as some of the Best Hazy IPAs in the region!
