Russian River Hoptime Harvest Ale


Brewed by Russian River Brewing
Santa Rosa, California USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 50 | Autumn Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.75%
HopTime Harvest Ale is brewed with 100% “wet” Russian River hops. Normally, we add from 1/2 pound to 2 pounds of hops per barrel (31 gallons) of beer. With this brew we added 9 pounds of freshly picked “wet” hops to each barrel of beer. The exceptional hop aroma and flavor is attributed to the fact that the “wet” hops were added to the kettle just 4 hours after they were harvested. Distinctive aromatic’s and flavor’s from “wet” hops differ from those found in dried hops because the volatile oils in “wet” hops are exactly as they were when hanging on the vine. Available on draft seasonally.
