A summer pale ale with hops so new they don’t even have a name yet. Get in on the ground level and be a hop hipster with Brooklyn Brewing’s new Scorcher #366. Featuring hops just called HBG 366, this summer pale ale is a little citrusy with piney hop notes in the finish. The hops were cross-bread between Warrior and a “wild” hop back in 2001 and currently take up about 1.2 acres of land in the Yakima Valley of Washington. According to Brooklyn, Scorcher #366 packs the hop character of an IPA, but is sessionable at 4.5% and loves lobster, shrimp, and crayfish.
