Think you know your hops? We use lots of hops at Ritual – artfully balancing the sweetness of barley malt with bitterness and a wide spectrum of different flavors and aromas to beer.
This weekend we’ll have four of our IPAs on tap featuring a variety of hops.
Art of Dankness – Hops for our Double IPA are hand-selected from the superlative new generation of U.S. varieties. Warrior hops offer extended grapefruit and lemon notes. Columbus and Centennial hops are high on the bittering scale, yet offer earthy, spicy, pungent aromas & flavors.
Hop-O-Matic IPA – A herbaceously spicy, pungent brew. Citra and Zythos hops add a citrus zest while Columbus and Simcoe hops impart both intense pine, passionfruit, and earthy notes.
Single Rye IPA with Experimental Hop #05256 – This yet to be named hop variety is out of the same breeding program that brought us Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, Warrior, and other amazing hops that we already use here at Ritual. This brew bursts with strong herbal notes, deep fruits, resin and aromas of grapefruit rind, pineapple, mango, and our brewers even get faint melon notes.
Single Rye IPA with Cascade hops – Our newest release. Intense flowery, citrus & spice with grapefruit-like aromas.
All of these beers are available in an exclusive HOPHEAD Flight at our Brewery. So drink up and embrace the hop! Check out our Facebook page to see what we’re up to or for more hoppy goodness.
