The Hop Adventure Series has been developed to showcase some of the most interesting hops from around the world. With this in mind we designed a beer that would allow the hops to display their full flavour and aroma. The style of beer brewed is a single hop India Pale Ale meaning one hop was used for bittering, aroma and several rounds of dry-hopping.
This edition showcases Strata – A brand new hop cultivar that has received wide-spread acclaim, and for good reason! Strata has A complexity that lends itself perfectly to A single hopped beer, delivering vibrant aromas of pineapple, peachy stone-fruit, and zesty citrus, along with some subtle herbal and cannabis notes.
The Strata hop has many layers of different fruit flavor, dried and fresh, anchored with a dried chili-cannabis-funk. Late hot side additions using Strata bring out layers of rounded-tropical plus bright-fresh fruit flavors; dry hopping yields more grapefruit and cannabis. Other descriptors include passion fruit, strawberry and dank.
The brewing process:
An IPA/Session-IPA/Pale Ale (and believe it or don’t, lager hop) with many layers of different fruit flavor, dried and fresh, anchored with a dried chili-cannabis-funk that does not have any diesel, machine oil, or catty ‘baggage’. Late hot side additions bring out layers of rounded-tropical plus bright-fresh fruit flavors; dry hopping yields more grapefruit and cannabis. Nice with roasted malts too.
