Loral hops were released in 2016 and quickly became one of our brewers’ favorite varieties. It was highlighted in our single hop IPA series, Stone Hop Revolver IPA, and was the featured hop in the hugely popular Stone Ghost Hammer IPA. Then there’s Dr. Rudi, which has been around since 1976. Originally known as Super Alpha, this hop brings classic piney and herbal notes, which pairs it perfectly with the oral, citrusy aroma of Loral. A pairing like this was bound to happen. Some might even call it inevitable.

Tasting Notes

Appearance
Light golden. White, foamy head with medium size bubbles.
Aroma
Intense floral up front with peach, resin and pine. There are also subtle herbal hints.
Taste
Citrus, peach, and hints of fresh berries with notes of herbal and white sage. Lots of resin and pine throughout.
Palate
Very refreshing, crisp, and smooth, especially for this high ABV. There is a mild bitterness on the finish.
Overall
This beer proves the theory that opposites attract. The elegant Loral with floral, citrus, and hints of noble qualities hooks up with a tie-dye wearing friend of a friend from out of town, who is dank and full of resin and pine. It works! People may find it hard to believe that this is 8.9% but the ABV definitely helps boost the wonderful aromas and flavors in this very drinkable beer. Have another!
