A group of veteran-owned brewers selected the hops for the 2018 Veterans Blend. The blend is comprised of five different Pacific Northwest-grown hop varieties, providing a beautiful mix of tropical, citrus, and herbal aromas, which was our inspiration for our first Juicy Pale Ale that would pay tribute to veterans and their hard working dogs. In brewing this beer, we focused on late hop additions during the boil and two dry hops additions that impart more hop flavor and aroma than hop bitterness. This beer provides a tropical and citrus fruit forward flavor palate with a light spicy background. Happy Veterans Day to all that have served!
