The Hop Studio – Idaho 7 DIPA 7.8%
Through every iteration of our growth over the last demi-decade, one thing that has persisted throughout is this brewery’s love of hops, and how we’ve born an entire business that now looks after the livelihoods of fourteen team members from this love. The Hop Studio felt like a natural extension of this love – showcasing the single most complex, wonderfully diverse ingredient we use in our process bar none. Idaho 7 has gone from a bubbling undercurrent varietal to one of our most highly used and dependable hops; holding its own alongside Polly’s stalwarts Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe. First developed back in 2015 at Jackson Hop Farm in Idaho, The Gem State’s first generation hop farm were working with Sierra Nevada at the time on a series of varietals to use in their beers, and the seventh submitted one really seemed to bridge the gap between tropical and citrus; with some striking melon, red berry, and most prominently, tangerine marmalade notes that blew them all away. Now Jackson’s primary source of output, we’re eternally grateful for their efforts and it lends itself best in our opinion in a big, bold DIPA.
