Fresh Hop Season is Here, Bringing New Meaning to "Only in Your Wildest Dreams"

THERE ARE FEW THINGS IN THE WORLD AS MAGICAL AS FRESH HOPS. We are welcoming back one of our original annual releases in Wet Hop Dreams, this time featuring PNW all-star hop varietal, Sabro. Keeping with the tradition of selecting a single fresh hop varietal each year, our legacy brew comes in at a very drinkable 6.7%, with Sabro taking center stage in front of an appropriately muted malt bill of just Pale 2-Row and wheat malts.

A relatively new player in the hop arena when compared to some of its other popular IPA counterparts like Citra and Mosaic, Sabro is known for imparting distinct tangerine, coconut, tropical fruit, and stone fruit aromas, with hints of cedar, mint, and cream, attributes that Mother Earth strove to highlight this year.

We’ve been experimenting with this varietal a bit in our Project X Series and were really impressed with the results. Some hops can be tricky to work with on their own but we felt that Sabro had a lot of unique flavor and aroma qualities that needed to be explored without the influence of other hops. Of course, when you have the opportunity to get them fresh, you can really capture the true essence of the hop.”
