Episode 137 – Pop Goes the IPA

As hop aroma science has evolved, it figures the wizards at Yakima Chief would attempt to split the aroma atom. They've unleashed a blend of hop components that target specific compounds to “pop” fruit forward aromas. YCH's Spencer Tielkemeyer and Joe Wells of Fair State Brewing help us understand how to maximize your Pop.

Episode 130 – A New Way To Figure Out Hops

We took a week off from hops, but we could never leave them for long. With all of the new ways of using hops, the IBU (which was already a lie) seems increasingly inadequate to reflect the modern beer experience. We're talking to our friends – Sam and Marko, from Grainfather – to discuss a new way to calculate the impact of our hop usage.
