We thought the 14th annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival, on Oct 1, 2016 couldn't have gotten any better, until our Citra Slicker Wet Hop IPA, brewed with Cloudburst Brewing, took home 1st Place for IPA at the festival!
This hop harvest, the seasoned big-city brewers from Seattle's Cloudburst Brewing made the trek over the Cascades to team up with the farm kids from Bale Breaker to brew Citra® Slicker Wet Hop IPA, a fresh hop beer that was first brewed two harvests ago. While it took the Cloudburst team over two hours to get to Bale Breaker, the hundreds of pounds of wet Citra® and Loral hops picked fresh from the fields that morning traveled just four minutes from farm to kettle. Heavily dry-hopped, while light in color and body, this beer is all about these fresh, farm-grown hops!
