Rock Art Vermont Hop Harvest

Brewed by Rock Art Brewery
Morrisville, Vermont USA
6% India Pale Ale (IPA) | 13 Ratings | 40 IBU | Summer Seasonal |
Vermont Hop Harvest Ale is a celebration of fresh hops grown locally as part of an exciting renewal of hop farming in Vermont. These new hop fields are reminiscent of earlier days when the majority of domestic hops were grown here in the Northeast. This wonderful pale ale explodes a delicious hop aroma and such a fresh taste that you might feel as if you are enjoying a pint on one of the many new Vermont hop farms. It offers a tasty malt body wrap in the citrusiness of the hops. Open it up and enjoy this seasonal brew that has been both dry and "wet" hopped to highlight the Cascade variety hop. Pair this with fall specials such as corn on the cob, a spicy fresh chopped salsa with veggies from your local farmers market. You’ll find that a hoppy beer will pair well with spicy foods, full flavored cheeses like cheddar or blue, and nothing beats grilling with a cool Vermont Hop Harvest Ale in your hand. Enjoy,
