Harvest Newly Developed Hops IPA

We work closely with hop breeders and growers to find new and exciting hops, never before used in a commercial beer. As the season progresses, we get first dibs on some of the most interesting and flavorful hops to feature in this Harvest series. This year, we’re highlighting the flavors of two cutting-edge hops, each with a unique character.

Tropical Torpedo

Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.

Harvest Brewers Select IPA

We’ve spent a lifetime learning about hops and what makes them so special, but despite that dedication, each year we’re surprised by one varietal that stands head-andshoulders above the rest. This year, a hop called Ekuanot is our pick—our Brewer’s Select—and we’re honored to be able to showcase it here.

Barrel-Aged Bigfoot with Ginger

This is a special version of our barrel-aged Bigfoot Barleywine with fresh ginger added into the barrels. The resulting kick of ginger mellows Bigfoot’s ferocious hop bite and adds a new level of brightness and complexity. This beer features notes of burnt sugar, orange zest, vanilla, and candied ginger.

Barrel-Aged Narwhal with Red & Black Currants

We aged this rich, chocolatey imperial stout in bourbon barrels with a mix of both red currants and black currants for a pop of sweet and tart flavor. The deep, roasty notes of the stout blend well with the berries and barrels to create complex flavors of cocoa and coconut with a mellow fruit undertone.

HARVEST Single Hop IPA 2016

Our hunt for rare and exciting hop flavors led us to a bizarre wild hop. This is a new sub-varietal of Neomexicanus— a wild hop indigenous to the U.S.— named FZMR2, lovingly called “Frank Zappa” for short. It has a deep, herbal and “dank” flavor with notes of stone fruit, melon and apricot all showcased against a hint of roasted malt in this new black IPA.
