Hopshifter IPA

IPA dry-hopped with select or experimental hop varietals

Occasional Kegs

Hop Shifter IPA is the name of a series of hop-forward trial beers we are brewing to experiment with select or new, yet-to-be-released hop varietals that are extremely limited in quantity. We are exploring the aromatic potential of these new varietals to see how the hops translate from the field to beer. The Hop Shifter series is based around an IPA recipe with a core set of malts, while the trial hops will be used as dry-hop additions. The trial hops we use will change from batch to batch, so the aromatic nature of the beer will also change.
