For its 3rd Annual Hop Odyssey Series, Green Flash Brewing Co. will release three session IPAs: Mosaic Session IPA, Citra Session IPA and Segal Ranch Session IPA. Available through June, Mosaic has notable characteristics from its parentage of Simcoe and Nugget hops and creates a unique and complex floral, tropical and fruity blend with earthy characteristics, the company says. Mosaic also imparts blueberry and other dark berry notes, it adds. Available from July to October, Citra initially debuted in 2013 and contains 100 percent Citra brand hops to impart intense flavors of orange, lemon and grapefruit that transcend the inherent tropical and floral notes, the company says. Using single-estate hops, Segal Ranch features Tomahawk, Centennial and Cascade hops. The verdant pungency and citrus aromatics from the Tomahawk hops serve as the base layer to allow the flavors of bright flora and pine sap from Centennial hops to emerge on the palate, the company says. Notes of resinous citrus from Segal Ranch Cascade hops are part of the finish, it adds. Segal Ranch will be available in November through the end of the year. At 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, each craft beer is available nationwide on draft and in 22-ounce bottles.
