We’ve received a very special delivery from Yakima Chief...
Fresh Frozen Hops for an exciting new project we cannot wait to stick our nose in!!! The nose always knows. Super stocked about this one, dear hop-heads!!!
For this ultra crisp IPA we teamed up with Yakima Chief to supply us with their fresh frozen hops, straight from the Pacific Northwest. The hops are harvested and immediately frozen, after which they are immediately transported to the Netherlands. In this way it symbolizes the 36 hours of freshness after harvesting while honoring their rich agricultural roots. The flash freezing process helps retain the delicate nuances of un-kilned hops.
And we then proceeded to pour 135 KILOGRAMS OF FRESH HOPS into the lauter tun! It was literally filled to the brim! This Fresh Hop IPA project is currently developing under the working title “Chilled to the Cone” IPA-lovers, this is the one to watch.
