Mother Earth Fresh as it Gets IPA
Our annual fresh hop beer has been a staple since it was first released in 2011, and was solidified as a bona fide winner in 2017 when it pulled a bronze at the Great American Beer Festival. Since the original brewery’s humble sourcing of local San Diego County fresh hops to our newer grown-up “Farm-to-Kettle” procurement, the goal is the same – get those hops from the bine to the brewery in the swiftest way possible. Fortunately for us, our Idaho brewery affords us proximity to some of the country’s top hop farms, leading to some spectacularly fresh results.
Our ‘22 batch of Fresh as it Gets features Citra hops, well known for its Citrus, grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruits notes, which are further intensified when brewed with fresh vs. dried cones. The malt bill, appropriately, is just two grain varieties deep, combined with a neutral ale yeast strain – a perfect combo to lay the foundation for the star of the show – fresh Citra flowers.
