Stoked! Belma

 HenHouse Brewing (Santa Rosa, CA)

"Part of our year-round Stoked! Single-Hop Pale Ale series. We rotate through different hops throughout the year, using only one variety for each batch. Only the hops change in Stoked, keeping it interesting yet familiar. Grown exclusively by Puterbaugh Farms in Washinghton, Belma is the hop that gives our IPA its strawberry notes. This beer is maximally stoked out with strawberry, peach and pink starburst aroma."

Initial sharp citrusy (grapefruit?) bitterness gives way to some subtle melon and berry flavors. Definitely for hop lovers.

ABV 5.4%,
Hops: Belma
