- Idaho 7
- House Ale
With Scratch #223, we’re continuing our exploration of Pale Ales brewed with a single experimental hop variety. Idaho ranks third in U.S. hop production (behind Oregon and Washington), accounting for approximately 10% of the country’s total hop yield. With almost 5,000 acres of land devoted to hops, Idaho farmers have their fair share of experimenting with varieties too. The recently developed Idaho 7 hop variety features a mild aroma of orange and apricot with hints of black tea leaves. Fruity flavors reminiscent of melon and peach develop, followed by a dry, peppery finish.
