Overall
Our third Stone Hop Worship Series release goes back to two of our favorite “retro” hops: Amarillo and Simcoe. These hops really aren’t that old as their development only goes back to the late 90s/early 2000s but with all the innovation out in the hop world, they seem like they’ve been around for a while. Sometimes taking a step back and appreciating what we already have is another form of innovation. These hops combine for a myriad of cool hop aromas and flavors including old school West Coast IPA attributes along with new school tropical qualities. It’s a perfect way to end the year’s Hop Worship Series.
