Description:
The more I drink and think about Pale Ale the more endearing it becomes. Pale Ales are straightforward beers and their charm comes from dedication to simplicity. But there comes a time in every brewers life (read daily) when he or she wants to add that little bit more... Hence the Dry Hop! What are dry hops? Simply hops added in the fermenter or cask - not boiled in the kettle. Dry hop additions do not impart the bitterness that kettle hops do and add a surreal hop resin texture to the beer as a result. In the end we are left with our beer a little less balanced than our status quo but the energy that the prominent hop note affords is pretty cool as it stands apart. Cascade is a classic hop for this technique as it lends a heavy grapefruit note which operates as an acidifier to the malty brew.
