Drake’s Aroma Coma / Aroma Prieta News – Recipe Change and Release Party
Drake’s Brewing just Announced some important information regarding Drake’s Aroma Coma ‘s recipe as well as the release of it and Drake’s Aroma Prieta.
Recipe Change for Aroma Coma
Yeah, you read this before. Like Alpha Session, we are building Aroma Coma around the best hops we own. But how do we determine “the best”? Well this year, we as a company sat down blind and smelled over a dozen different lots of multiple varieties hops – everything from Simcoe to CTZ, Mosaic to HBC 342. Everyone pitched in – owners and accountants, brewers and bottlers – to suss out what we liked best. Ratings were totally hedonic, and after 24 hours of sniffing and huffing we analyzed the results. Some definite favorites came through, with El Dorado and Citra leading the way. We are going to balance that pairing of bright citric hops with another crowd favorite – a particularly dank batch of Amarillo, and then glue it all together with classic Cascades and a very piney crop of Chinooks. With multi-stage dry-hopping, this guy should be a hops-to-eleven bomb that everyone at Drake’s had a hand (or nose) in creating.
