Troegs Brewing (Hershey, PA) has released the second in a series of three hop forward seasonals in 2014. Hop Knife is a harvest ale that utilizes hops at the peak of the growing season, insert them into the brewery’s Hop Cyclone during fermentation. The result is a beer full of chewy, fresh hops flavors, meant to be consumed as fresh as possible.
Hop Knife Harvest Ale recognizes the meticulous, time-honored tradition of hand-harvesting hops at the peak of maturity. Our HopCyclone process creates an inward spiral of hop dispersal during fermentation, releasing a bounty of citrus, resin and tropical aromas.
The first in the series was Troegs Cultivator, and the series will be completed with Blizzard of Hops later this year.
