As the harvest wound up and the hop pickers finished their seasons work, we made this extra hoppy American IPA to remember the season by. The Hop Picker marries two of our favorite American hop varieties, Centennial and Columbus in even portions at each step of the brew. From bittering in the kettle to dry hopping in the conditioning tank, we added equal parts of these two pungent hops all the way through. Balanced with a subdued malt bill made up of American 2-row pale malt, Munich malt and an assortment of light caramel malts for a deep gold color and a nice body to match the hops without overpowering them.
