Brewer Description: (from box) Each hop varietal has its own distinct flavor and aroma, which our brewers use in various combinations to create different flavors in our beers. Sometimes, though, we prefer to strip away those layers and let the bold flavor of an individual hop shine through. Discover the flavors of these unique single hops in this all-new pack of four hop-heavy beers.
