New Belgium 8 Hop Pale Ale

This year-round offering will be available in 12 ounce bottles, cans, and draft.

    Just curious, but you say say that the brewery isn’t disclosing which hops are used but you list 8 hops in the description. How did you come up with these hops?

    • Actually, those came from the brewery. We looked into it, and they gave up the list. I failed to update the upper part of the article once we had the hop list in hand. Good catch –

    It’s too bad they’ve decided to shelf both Ranger and Rampant IPAs in favor of less hoppy ‘voodoo’ versions as they’re both highly rated in the craft world. I’ve tried both of the new Voodoo versions and can’t say I’m a fan of either relative to their predecessors. A local distributor shed some light on the matter indicating a difficulty in procuring quality hops these days. I’m thinking consolidation in the beer market where a few major players (InBev, anyone?) have cornered the market for hops. The only logical result is that the smaller players have had their knees cut out from under them as the big conglomerates seek to reclaim lost market share. Either way, I’m not buying anything but craft…
