Description

Distilled hop oil is an amazing new product we are making available to homebrewers.  Distilled hop oil varies from other oils in that it is produced from fresh hops, as opposed to dried and processed pellets.  Distilled hop oil delivers the same wet hop character that was previously only possible to acquire with the use of freshly harvested hops.  The oil is extremely shelf stable, so you can now brew a consistant fresh hop IPA all year long. Extremely volatile, this oil should only be used for aromatic applications; typically applied at bottling/kegging.

Distilled hop oil is very potent; add to taste. We recommend using roughly 0.5-1 ml per 5 gallon batch, if replacing 50-100% of a dry hop, added directly to the beer prior to bottling or during kegging. Be careful to not push off the volatile aromatic compounds (disturb the beer as little as possible and reduce oxygen exposure). Most staff members here found that 1ml per 5 gallons was "too hoppy" when replacing 100% of the dry hop.  Hop heads (myself included), found that the 1 ml per 5 gallon dosage gave a pungent, fresh, pleasurable and unique hop experience.  Tasting these oils is as close to being in Yakima for hop harvest as possible!

Super concentrated hop freshness
I was really excited to find this here, and it put me over the top for free shipping. This vial is really small - 1mL is TINY. But man does it pack a punch. Dipped a toothpick in the vial then into a glass of beer - not even close to a drop was transferred yet the flavor and aroma was immediately there. Be careful with these small dosings! Flavor profile is perfect match for the aromas coming off my El Dorado pellet dry hopped IPA, but without the green vegetal funk that persists for the first 5 days or so. Once the aroma starts to fade on that batch, this little bad boy will kick it up a notch.

Have not yet had a chance to see how it ages and whether it fades, mellows or integrates nicely, but I'm hoping once its in the keg it has no way to get out but through me.

Here's to hoping we get more options in distilled and cryo-hops!

Definitely adds a distinctive hop aroma, not a replacement for traditional dry hops.
This hop oil definitely adds a distinctive hop aroma which carries a small bit over into flavor, perhaps unsurprisingly. The description MoreBeer gives seems accurate. The aroma is reminiscent of wet hop character, and also of hop candy. Very distinctive. For reference, most will likely find a single small drop into a full pint of beer to be overwhelming. Not a lot of difference apparent between the two available varieties when tasting side by side. When you get too high on the dosing there is an almost chemical aroma.

POTENT
I'm giving this 3 stars but not sure if I'm being fair.
They tell you to be stingy with this, but I typically like very strong flavors, so I added the whole vial to a 5 gallon IPA. It was too much and left an odd taste. Not too bitter, just odd.( I'm choosing not to believe it could just be my beer that didn't taste right)
Hard to imagine this tiny vial can be that potent but it is. May be fine in a 7-10 gallon batch or use 1/2 in a 5 gallon batch.
I'll probably try again.
