Hop Hunter IPA by Sierra Nevada brewing is the inspiration for this delicious recipe.  Hop Gatherer is a Hop Hunter clone, which contains all of the same ingredients as the original beer, but gives you the option of what distilled oil you would like to use.  We offer the kit with either Chinook or El Dorado farm distilled hop oil.  Either way, this makes a tasty, easy drinking and highly aromatic IPA!
A bit about farm distilled hop oil: Distilled immediatley after picking, farm distilled hop oil gives you the bursting aroma provided by fresh hops.  By distilling the oil at the farm, the distinct character of a "wet hop" beer is able to be replicated year round.  The oil can be added post fermentation, typically at bottling.  You can even add the oil directly to your glass! Be careful, it is VERY POTENT!
Light in color and incredibly smooth, this IPA is enjoyed by all. Not too bitter, but absolutely hoppy enough to please the biggest hop head!

Great hop flavor
Easy to brew and tasty. Added all the hop oil.

Was a little nervous with all the competing hop varieties. Turned out to be pretty tasty. I'll make this kit again, for sure.

Came out decent but nothing like hop Hunter. I used us-05 and kept temp at 67*. I added the chinook oil at kegging. This beer came out very fruity to me and everyone I served it to. Pineapple and mango flavors we're noted. Everyone seemed to like it.

Oil did not work out
I added the oil (which amounted to a few drops) to the beer in the bottling bucket and stirred a lot, but the oil was not distributed to all of the bottles. And really did not add a pleasant flavor when it was present. The oil is very strong, but does not enhance the beer.
