New Hoppiness

There are two more new hops in the pipeline (aka pre-commercialization stage) following in the footsteps of Sabro and Strata are HBC 586 and 638.

HBC 586 is a “bright, fruit-forward hop”.

HBC 638 is “complex and versatile. …with tropical fruit flavors”.

You might see some beers that mention in the marketing material those two numbers and then we will have to translate that to their trade names if they become popular and have enough acreage to be in larger runs of beers.
