Colorado is all over Fresh Hops=wet and undried hops. To list a few:
-New Belgium - Fresh Hop Ale. Probably the best wetnfresh commercial IPA I have ever had.
-Left Hand Brewing - Warrior IPA. "Fresh Hop Ale" made with all Colorado grown hops flown in fresh.
-Great Divide - Colorado Fresh Hop IIPA. You guessed it...freshly picked and rushed to brewery Colorado hops.
-Tommy snotknocker - Colorado IPA Nouveau - Fresh hopped ale...Colorado freshly picked hops
AND the GABF awarding medals in the "Fresh Hop Category".....
Seems Sierra Nevada is facing a bit of marketing quandary.
But heck, they only started calling Celebration a fresh hopped ale a couple years ago.
That dude should loose his job.
Because the tschmidlin folks aint buying due to beersematical protest.
Don't let the marketing stubbornness cause you to not Celebrate the season. Yum.
BTW, I got into some 2013 Ruthless tonight. No quandary there.
Seems like the added more Rye this year. yackyack
