Glacier Hops are a dual-purpose variety with a pleasant aroma profile typically used in American Pale Ales. With an aroma profile of fruit and cedar, Glacier hops are perfect for those looking to whirlpool or dry hop. In addition, many claim to detect aromas of plum and blackberry. As a result, brewers will use Glacier hops during a dry hop addition to extract those aromas.
City Harvest Hop Co currently produces only leaf hops. Leaf hops refer to hops that have been picked and dried, but have not been milled down and compacted into pellets. Many brewers prefer leaf hops to pellet hops during certain stages of brewing, citing less cleanup. However, they do take up more room in a fridge or freezer. Regardless of whether you prefer leaf or pellet hops, you can rest assured the City Harvest Hops are more fresh than hops from the big producers. City Harvest Hops have traveled less than 10 miles before reaching their destination, and are always less than one year old unless otherwise stated.
