We gave a pretty decent description for the Mystery Beer yesterday, one that gave its identity away… if you know your hop varietals:


“This week’s Mystery is a single-hop, session IPA which features a gem of a hop from across the Pacific.”

Yesterday’s Mystery Beer and the latest release from their Genius Lab, Green Flash – Pacific Gem Session IPA is limited release beer, available on draft only and typically only enjoyed in Green Flash’s San Diego tasting room. Named for the single New Zealand hop varietal featured in the beer, Pacific Gem is bright and fruity with a prominent blackberry aroma and balanced, flavorful characteristics. Because of its useful, high Alpha Acid beer-bittering potential, this hop is introduced throughout the boil, reinforcing the beer’s flavor and aroma. Light and sessionable, yet flavorful enough for the most discerning craft lover to enjoy.

Hurry in and try a pint yourself, or have another. At the rate it was pouring yesterday it won’t last long!
