Barley Johns Wet Hop Pale Ale


Brewed by Barley Johns Brew Pub
New Brighton, Minnesota USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 6 | Alcohol: 5.5%
Wet hop ales are some of the freshest beers of the year. Most hops are generally dried, shredded and pelletized before they are used in beer. Once a year, during harvest, fresh hops are harvested, over-nighted to breweries all over the US, and thrown fresh (and wet) into the brew kettle or brite tank. A couple of weeks back we received 10lbs of fresh Amarillo and 10lbs of fresh Centennial hops. They were brewed into a gentle, slightly sweet pale ale designed to act as a bright canvass to highlight the hopsí character. The wet hops lend the beer a special resiny taste with a refreshing bitterness, floral notes, and plenty of spice with just a hint of bubblegum, and a long hoppy finish. Malts Used: 2-Row, Aromatic, Crystal, CaraVienne, Unmalted Wheat Hops Used: Warrior, Fresh Whole Cone Amarillo, Fresh Whole Cone Centennial Yeast: House Strain
