For the next version of our double dry hopped series of Coriolis Effect, we're experimenting with a developing method for dry hopping: hop terpene infusion.
For the next version of DDH Coriolis Effect, we wanted to experiment with a developing method for dry hopping: hop terpene infusion. For the TLDR version of what terpenes are they're the aromatic and flavor compounds found in plants, so hop terpenes are basically super concentrated hop aroma and flavor that can be used in place of cones or pellets in dry hopping. Lucky for us, one of the innovators of this extraction process is right here in Colorado - Oast House Oils in Lafayette. After chatting with them about the application of these oils, we decided to try it out with one of our favorite hop varietals, Galaxy! We love the passion fruit, pineapple/tropical fruit flavors and aromas of this Australian hop, so it seemed to make all the sense in the world to put it to use with our southern hemisphere hopped Coriolis Effect. Oast House Oils have been doing some cool stuff in this field, so we couldn't be more excited to show off their work alongside one of our flagship beers and are looking forward to experimenting with these hop terpenes even more in some upcoming beers!
