From Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks in Richmond comes this years version of “Chrono Wet Hop IPA”. The beer pours a copper orange colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of semi tropical fruits, citrus, floral hops and a hint of malt. The flavour is of resin, pine, herbal, tropical, citrus, caramel and some bitterness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 6.9% with an IBU of 66. I have not been the biggest fan of fresh hopped beers over the last few years as they lack bitterness. I am happy to say this one was a tasty one and a good kick off for the fresh hop season.
Commercial Description: Chrono Wet Hop IPA: Time is of the essence. Freshly picked Centennial and Cascade hops from BC Hop Co were immediately brought to the brewery and thrown into the brew within hours of picking. The magic of the fresh hops deliver a juiciness and dankness that we will never get from dried hops. Enjoy a light malt body and a citric blast from the wet hops!
