||Pale Ale - American
Come late August and early September, the abundant hop cones swarming the Yakima valley reach their fruition. Wet, saturated, and dripping with essential oils and resins, they are ready for harvest. Once a year, we are presented an opportunity to brew Hop Prophet, a 'wet' hop ale utilizing different hop varieties each year, that go from 'vine' to 'kettle' within hours. Exclusively brewed with wet hops the Hop Prophet yields gentle, delicate, intriguing hop aromas and flavors very unique to fresh hops. A blend of domestic Pale Ale malt, British Maris Otter malt, and a touch of crystal malt contribute a clean, off-dry mouth feel with subtle notes of honey and biscuit-like malt tones. With benevolence, good-will, and transcendence, the Hop Prophet bestows his almighty powers towards a successful harvest and his grace towards the hard working individuals toiling amongst the sun and soil of our treasured hop growing regions of Washington State.
