Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) has officially announced that the 2018 edition of So Fresh & So Green, Green, a fresh hop IPA showcasing Glacier hops, will begin its Limited Release on Saturday, October 20.
When it came time to select hops for this year’s Fresh Hop/Harvest Ale, the brewing team at Terrapin Beer Co. decided to go with a hop varietal that they have “never used . . . in So Fresh & So Green, Green before”: Glacier hops from Hop Head Farms in Michigan. These “fun” hops balance “So Fresh & So Green, Green’s malty sweetness” with a “satisfying bitterness” and also bring “notes of citrus and an herbal, woody aroma.”
“We wanted to try hops from somewhere else in the US. We found high-quality hops from Michigan and went for it.
We’re always looking for new hops that are freshest around when we need to brew the beer so that it’s ready in time for our Hop Harvest Festival. That means we have fewer hops to choose from, so we’re really excited about Glacier!”
– Spike Buckowski, Terrapin’s Brewmaster and Founder
