brewdog gives us the lowdown on hops

and this, found in a comment on that brewdog post, about the uk worrying about hops shortages back in may, while making fun of hipsters

upcoming casks from dead frog brewing:

November 25, 4:00pm
CRAFT Beer Market (@CRAFTbeeryvr )
Imperial Red Ale dry-hopped with Citra
Malts: Pale Malt, Cara Amber, Munich 30, Cara 20, Special B
Hops: Citra
IBU: 46
ABV: 7.5%
A bolder version of an Irish Red Ale combining a moderate malt and light buttery aroma with citrus hops for a medium-bodied ale that begins with sweet caramel and hints of milk chocolate, then finishes with a lingering dryness. Note: this beer has not yet been officially released and is otherwise only available at the brewery for growler fills.

November 28, 5:00pm
London Pub (@londonpubvan)
Imperial Red Ale
Malts: Pale Malt, Cara Amber, Munich 30, Cara 20, Special B
Hops: Citra
IBU: 46
ABV: 7.5%
A bolder version of an Irish Red Ale combining a moderate malt and light buttery aroma with citrus hops for a medium-bodied ale that begins with sweet caramel and hints of milk chocolate, then finishes with a lingering dryness. Note: this is a straight-up cask-conditioned ale without any adjuncts or additions to the firkin.

December 7, 1:00-5:00pm
This Sandwich, That Beer Throwdown IV
The Portside Pub (@ThePortsidePub)
Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock with figs
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich
Hops: Northern Brewer, Hallertau
IBU: 26
ABV: 7%
A warm golden lager with a splash of citrus and slight caress of fruity hop flavour and aroma. Premium European malts and hops result in a brew that's light in colour but not in body, with a perfectly balanced finish. Note: for the TSTB Throwdown (@TSTB_blog), the cask will be paired with a pork ribwich from new Vancouver food truck, The Local Omnivore (@omnivoreYVR).
