Fresh IIPA V5 (Fresh By 06.16.19)
A Note on This Beer
The Hops: Absolutely packed with Citra and Mosaic! And today, for the first time ever, Hubbard’s Cave amps up this Fresh IIPA to new heights of deliciousness with a hefty dose of ultra-potent Mosaic Cryo-Hops! The Flavors: Citrus and berries! Berries and citrus! Like a handful of ripe, blackberries and blueberries blended into a mandarin orange smoothie. Mouthfeel: Like a pillow of fluffy clouds.
Every time a brand new juicebomb in Hubbard’s Cave’s Fresh IIPA series drops, we do our damndest to snag a few cases to share with all of you.
We don’t always succeed, because hordes of thirsty Chicago hopheads take the Tri-state Tollway to the brewery for each release, drinking up all the hop nectar before it ever has a chance to leave Illinois. They don’t even care about the tolls!
But not today! Today we managed to slip in before the locals and scoop up a little stash of Fresh IIPA V5, and we couldn’t be happier. Because Hubbard’s amped up this beloved brew with a whopping addition of Mosaic Cryo-hops!
This stuff was already hard to find, and now that they’ve cranked up the Cryo, it’s more sought after than ever!
Seriously, V5 was rated 4.20 on UT BEFORE Hubbard’s went cryo-crazy all over it! And now it’s loaded with even MORE berry-blasted Mosaic Hop flavor, so you can luxuriate in all that hazy, hoppy juice you love.
Just make sure you have plenty to go around if you’re planning to share with some buddies. Because once they taste this Cryo-enhanced fan favorite, you won’t be able to get rid of them until they’ve sucked down your whole stash.
