About Dry-Hopped Thundercone
Fresh, wet Cascade hops are frantically delivered straight from the hop fields to every McMenamins Brewery, and each batch of Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale is brewed within hours of the hops being picked off of the vine. The resulting beer is an absolute fresh-hop showcase. This beer starts with a smooth foundation and just a slight maltiness. The real star of this show is the fresh Cascade hops used for both flavoring and aroma. Five pounds of fresh Cascades per barrel are added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh Cascades overwhelm Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale with an earthy, raw-hop decadence that can only come from fresh hops. It is a greener and more unadulterated flavor and aroma than comes from dried hops. The citrusy, flowery and grapefruit notes usually associated with Cascade hops are still present but with an amazing fresh-hop funkiness added into the mix. This beer is so refreshing and hop-filled that you may think you are dreaming, but Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale is in reality a short-lived dream come true.
