Unihopper w/ Sorachi Ace
The Unihopper is our rotating single-hopped pale ale.Each time we brew the Unihopper, we use the same sturdy pale ale base as a launchpad to showcase an individual hop variety. As you might imagine, it's a bit of a hop-bomb--and that is exactly the point. Your taste buds have been warned. This batch features Sorachi Ace, a very distinctive variety that features bright lemon, herbal, and tea-like flavors. It's great all on its own, but also pairs well with all sorts of pub food like burgers and brats or pizza and wings.
The Unihopper is a beer designed to be enjoyed on it's own, as a tool to teach your mouth about the flavors and aromas contributed by different hop varieties. Once you've got that out of the way, it's pretty versatile, pairing well with all sorts of pub food like burgers and brats or pizza and wings. It'll also work with lighter fare, like spinach salad with apples, goat cheese and honey-mustard vinagrette.
