EXPERIMENTAL IPA NO. 4
Being from hop country, we’re usually first in line to try new experimental hop varieties. We’re excited to introduce this experimental IPA, made in collaboration with Yakima Chief Hops, which features HBC 630 and HBC 586, two experimental hops from hop breeders Yakima Chief Ranches and the Hop Breeding Company.

FEATURING EXPERIMENTAL HOP
VARIETY HBC 630
Currently in the Elite Trials stage of the breeding program, HBC 630 is a granddaughter of Warrior® resulting from a cross made in 2008. It was selected for its moderately high alpha, low co-humulone and distinct aroma. The best way to describe HBC 630 is fruity. It presents with flavor and aroma that have been described as cherry and raspberry candy-like with pronounced tropical notes.
