Powell Brewery in Vancouver has announced the release of their new Fresh Hopped Wild IPA.
Fresh Hopped Wild IPA was dry-hopped with 200 pounds of fresh Amarillo hops. To really get as much out of the hops as possible, they used liquid nitrogen to freeze and crush them, releasing all the lupulin goodness held inside the hop cones.
Lastly, they fermented the beer with a wild yeast strain for a little funk and to bring out the citrus and stone fruit character of Amarillo.
Fresh Hopped Wild IPA will be released at the Powell Brewery tasting room on Friday September 15. It will be available in 4-pack tall cans, by the glass, or for growler fills (2 litre max).
It will be shipping out to liquor stores early next week.
