Hellgate Haze is a refreshing and flavorful hazy IPA that is named after Hells Gate Canyon near Grants Pass, Oregon and the iconic Hellgate Bridge. This beer is characterized by its dominant floral and fruity hop flavors, which are created through a unique fermentation process known as biotransformation. During this process, hops are added directly to the fermenter at the beginning of fermentation, allowing the particular yeast strain used to transform the hops and create new, distinct flavors. As a result, Hellgate Haze features a pale, hazy appearance and a flavor profile that tends towards juicy, floral, and tropical notes.
