From Deschutes Brewery comes a new, fresh-hopped IPA that I really enjoyed the other night at Whole Foods' Tap Room in Santa Rosa. Very light in color for an IPA, almost a blonde, it was non-the-less a very flavorful brew, which Kay enjoyed an much as I. The fresh hop flavor really came thru, as I am getting better at recognizing its presence in the finish. Here's how it's described on Deschutes web site:
"At harvest, we rush Goschie Farms' Cascade hops fresh from vine to
kettle. Not any Cascades, mind you, but an heirloom strain, from a
single field, restored from the original rhizome. Hope you’re as hopped
up as we are.
It's only available thru December so I recommend you go chase down some of this before it's gone. ABV: 7.4% IBUs 60.
