Brewer: Sierra Nevada Brewing
Style: American IPA
Until the launch of Hop Hunter, the primary technique to make hoppier beer was to add more hops or hop extract. Sierra Nevada developed a proprietary method to distill hop oils from fresh flowers to preserve the aroma of unprocessed hops for a year round beer. The result is Hop Hunter, a relatively easy to find IPA with the intense floral character of the very limited wet hop beers you can typically only get a few weeks every fall.
