Swamp Head Gainesville Green
Recently, some fresh picked, skunky, funky smelling green hops showed up at the brewery. It was HARVEST TIME. Each year, right around the time that the weather starts to cool, fresh sticky hops are picked off of the vine and sent to us overnight so we can use them in a "Fresh Hop" or "Harvest" ale. This is done quickly so we can use these little guys before they lose a single bit of their intensely dank aromas and flavors.
India Pale Ale & IPA
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
