Powell Brewery has just released their new Hop Hash double IPA.
Hop hash is the named given to the magical, sticky substance left behind on the walls of the pelletizer during the process of making dry hops. This substance is made up of pure hop lupulin, which they scraped off and used for dry hopping the beer.
They used Idaho 7 hop hash here, combined with pilsner, Vienna, and wheat malt to create one of the dankest of dank double IPAs.
I was lucky enough to try it on draft at The Drake’s Magnificent 6 event last week and found it to be wonderfully dank, resinous, and aromatic, without as much bitterness as you’d expect.
You can find it on tap at the Powell tasting room and bottles should be hitting store over the coming weeks.
