SweetWater Hop Hash

All the hash out of the Yakima hop pelletizers was scraped out so the SweetWater crew could get their sticky fingers on to concoct the dankest double IPA out there. The pure hop lupulin, aka “hash” (the resiny stuff), meshes seamlessly with the 2-row, pilsner and wheat malts, allowing it to deliver a pungent punch to the palate.

This Hop Hash is packing at stealth 7.8% ABV and the lighter malt bill gives it a silky smooth mouth feel. Look for a creeping bitterness up front from the Centennial followed by the flavor and aroma from the HASH, which packs the citrus punch.

They dosed this sucker with a boatload of Amarillo Hop Hash. Pungent with floral, tropical citrus fruit flavors and the hop hash gives it that one of a kind chewy, gooey, resiny mouth feel. As the chaser, they are giving it a hefty dry hop to enhance the potent aromas. Ahtanum gives it orange and grapefruit tones, Crystal for a little kick of spiciness, and El Dorado bringing some pear and watermelon characteristics.
