Fresh Hop Ale
Hazy Pale Gold
Among the vineyards that fill the mid-September air near the shores of Lake Michigan with the smell of ripening grapes, it’s harvest season at Hop Head Farms in Baroda, Michigan. DC Brau’s production manager, Chris Graham, made a special trip to the farm to pick up 300 pounds of freshly harvested, un-dried Crystal hops for the brewery’s latest dock release.
Available in 4-packs of 12 oz cans ($11.99/pk), with a limited supply of draft, starting Friday, October 12, 2018 at 2PM in the tasting room only!
Crystallion is a hazy pale-gold IPA clocking in at 5.3% ABV that reveals flavors of fresh cut grass, lemon pith, and honeydew with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel that will have your palate riding off into the sunset. As with all wet hop beers, in order to get the maximum impact of the delicate flavors, Crystallion is best when consumed VERY fresh.
