fRYEd Fresh-Hopped Rye Pale Ale
Our 2015 hop harvest special release, fRYEd Fresh-Hopped Rye Pale Ale, will be fresh-hopped with Chinooks from the Still Wind Hop Farm on Colorado’s Western Slope imparting tropical fruit notes to its flavor and aroma. Generous amounts of toasted rye add complexity with a spicy, nutty flavor.
Brewing with fresh off the bine (not vine!) wet hops provides a unique hop experience with a more complete hop flavor and aroma due to the presence of volatile oils that are normally evaporated out during the drying process. These fresh hop flowers must be used within 24 hours of harvest!
