Introducing our Wet Hop IPA, a bold and refreshing beer crafted with the Zeus hops picked fresh from the vine at Thomsen Hop Farm. With its vibrant golden hue and lively carbonation, this beer is as visually appealing as it is flavorful.
The Zeus hops lend this IPA a pungent and resinous character, tantalizing your senses with a a smooth bitterness that demands attention. As you take your first sip, the robust hop profile bursts to life, delivering a delightful combination of citrus, pine, and earthy notes.
This IPA offers a complex and robust flavor profile, with the Zeus hops taking center stage. The citrusy zing of grapefruit and lemon dances harmoniously with the piney undertones, creating a dynamic and refreshing balance. The addition of these wet hops brings an unparalleled vibrancy to the brew, enhancing the depth of the aroma and intensifying the hoppy experience.
With each sip, you'll discover a crisp and clean mouthfeel, complementing the hops' sharpness and accentuating the beer's overall drinkability. The moderate malt backbone provides a solid foundation, allowing the Zeus hops to shine while maintaining a well-rounded flavor profile.
Perfectly suited for hop enthusiasts, our West Coast IPA brewed with fresh wet Zeus hops is an ode to the bold and adventurous. Embrace the West Coast spirit as you savor this delightfully hoppy brew, crafted with care and dedication to deliver an unforgettable drinking experience.
This beer is special for us here at Angry Horse because it's our first opportunity to partner with the California Hop Co-Op and Thompsen Hops. During hop harvest, we drove up to the farm for 6 hours after work, slept for 3 hours before heading to the farm to help with harvest for 13 hours and immediately drove back to LA with freshly picked hops to make this beer the very next day. It was an amazing experience that we plan to turn into an annual tradition.
