Sorry to disappoint, but this post isn’t really about growing hops: not yet, anyway… Every time I taste another amazing west coast IPA, I dream about growing hops. My treat and recommendation for today comes from Caldera Brewing Company in Ashland, Oregon. It’s called Caldera IPA. The hops are magnificent: citrus, floral, and pine flavors. I can taste the sunshine.
A sincere thank you goes out to my brother-in-law Andy; he brought a box of assorted ales back from his recent beach vacation. Within a mix of new names, I found the Caldera.
Now, I wanna’ grow some hops. How ’bout you?
