#149 Zythos IPA



MoreBeer's Hopunion's Zythos IPA.  Hopunion is one of the main suppliers of hops in the Craft Brewing industry.  Zythos is a new "IPA style" hop blend created to optimize and exceed the aroma characteristics of the traditional, and sometimes hard to get, IPA hops. Hopunion had a team of professional hop sniffers blending combinations of hops. The interesting thing about blending hops is like blending wine - the blend actually ends up being different than the sum of the parts. Pretty cool.1
