Abita Select Shem Wet Hop Ale

Brewed by Abita Brewing Co.

American Pale Ale6.0% ABV30 IBU

Our Ancient Wet Hop Ale is named after Shem, the son of Noah in biblical history. He was a brewer who utilized the grains that were available at the time. We brewed this beer with raw and malted barley, as well as the seven ancient grains: amaranth, kamut, buckwheat, spelt, quinoa, millet and teff. These ingredients impart a raw and natural grain flavor to the beer and because most of the ancient grains are naturally light in color and unmalted, this beer is pale in color. We hopped the beer with wet Centennial hops. These are hops that are used in the brewing process right after they are picked from the vine. These hops impart a natural green hop flavor to beer, as well as the usual flavors of citrus and pine that are normally associated with Centennials. The result is a pale ale with flavors of natural grains and fresh hops.

When it came to creating Ripper, we drew inspiration from the coastal surf cultures of SoCal and Oz. Sourcing classic Cascade from the Pacific Northwest and Australian Galaxy hops from…yes…Australia, we made a beer both lovers of frothy peaks and hoppy green buds will be stoked about. At the same time, we stayed true to our San Diego roots by pushing the hop boundaries of this style. While some might think it lingers on an edge far closer to an IPA, with all the dry-hop flavor and aroma, it’s actually right in line with the current-day interpretation of a West Coast pale. Ours just so happens to have an Aussie accent that’s cascading with a juicy amount of grapefruit and passion fruit hoppiness.
