Description

When a brewer is trying to decide whether they want to use a particular variety of hop in a new brew, they’ll take a few hop blossoms and roll them between their hands to tease out the aroma. After a hop selection a few years ago, Brewmaster Ryan and Cellermaster Geoff walked away with green, sticky, hoppy palms. The product of that hop selection, Hoppy Palm Pale Ale, has been aggressively dry-hopped with Cascade, Chinook, and Galaxy hops, producing an American Pale Ale with a light body and minimal sweetness. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice tropical notes from the Galaxy hops, with the Cascade hops giving it a hint of citrus as well.
