What is Dry Hopping?
Dry Hopping is a brewer’s technique used to increase the aroma of the beer. As its name says, brewer add dry hops to the produced beer after fermentation. Normally adding extra hops to obtain a beer with a very intense aroma.
Hops are normally added during boiling stage to extract the alfa acids (guiltiest to provide bitterness). If a hop is added on the last 5-10 minutes, the aroma could be improved but the beer will lose some of the aromatics.
Dry hops do not modify the flavour, as they have not been boiled, however, the aroma is one of the main responsible of changing the flavour, meaning that the dry hopped beers will have an amazing extra flavour.

Using lots of US hops and bringing a bit of West Coast down south, this is a beer that, much like that magic board in 66, is not for the faint-hearted and is guaranteed to take anyone on the ride of their life!
