Badlands - Pedestal: Manilita (Single Hop IPA)
Badlands Brewing Company (Caledon, ON)
Pedestal is Badland's line of single hop beer where they single out one particularly delicious hop and put it up high on a hazy pedestal for your taste buds to enjoy in all its isolated, lupulin filled glory. This particular version uses a new trial hop from Freestyle Hops: Manilita. This is a hop Badlands is particularly excited to try. They smelled it for the first time this year and it knocked their nose-socks off. It was, bar none, the best smelling cut of hops they smelled in the last year, and it’s a hop they have both never heard of or tried. They are very very excited to see how it performs in our beer!
