We are amidst wet hop beer season and for some, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Fuggles & Warlock Brewing have taken advantage of the bounty, releasing this amazing drink, which I was able to partake in at the BC Beer Awards.
The Chrono Wet Hop IPA features freshly-picked Cascade and Centennial hops from BC Hop Co, which were added to this beer’s recipe within hours of being plucked. The 6.9% ABV, 66 IBUs brew is not for the faint-hearted, as citrus and bitterness will explode through your taste buds and take hold of your senses.
The beverage is available in bomber-sized bottles at private liquor stores, as well as from the Fuggles & Warlock tasting room in Richmond, where it is also on tap. I really enjoyed this IPA, so I should make some time to get a growler fill.
I believe the beer’s theming comes from the popular role-playing video game Chrono Trigger, originally for the Super Nintendo. While I never played this game, not being much of an RPG fan, I do know it’s a childhood favourite for many around the world.
