COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hop Breeding Co. (HBC) is releasing a new variety hop currently known as HBC-435. With a history that goes back to the late 1990s, HBC-435 is affectionately known as “Ron Mexico” after a pair of homebrewers were gifted some a decade ago. The name pays homage to the hop plant’s background, which is half neomexicanus. The hop has distinct notes of tropical and stone fruits, creating a delicious hop aroma in this session IPA brewed by Vinnie Cilurzo, owner and brewmaster at Russian River.

Golden color ale from the bottle with a small white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, and brine. Smells really good. Light malt body showcases the diversity of the hop. Flavor is more like lemon peel, mango, and coconut with a candy-like fruit finish. Very different. Look forward to more beers with this hop.
