In late September, our hometown of Yakima is THE place to be to sample Fresh Hop Beers. At the 15th annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival, Piled High Imperial IPA took home 1st Place for Imperial Fresh Hop IPA! This is the second year in a row where our beer was recognized at this event. In 2016, Citra® Slicker Wet Hop IPA won for best Fresh Hop IPA.
Brewed in the middle of a hop field, Piled High Imperial Fresh Hop Ale just might be one of the freshest Fresh Hop Ales around. It took just four minutes to get these wet Simcoe hops out of the picking machine at Loftus Ranches and into the brew kettle. 8.2% ABV | 65 IBU.
