Default Brewer's Gold hops in Pete's Wicked Ale Clone

I'm in the middle of a PM of Pete's Wicked Ale clone. I just opened the bittering hops and WOW! I've never used Brewer's Gold before but they smell so good! I'm excited about this brew. I wish they made air fresheners for your car in hops scents. I'd take Willamette and Brewer's Gold hops. Awesome smell in my house right now.

Recipe:
1/2 lb Vienna malt
1/2 lb Crystal 60L
1/4 lb chocolate mald
1 3/4 lb two row

5 1/2 lb pale LME

1 oz Brewer's Gold (9.1%AA) 60 minutes
1/2 oz EKG (6.0%AA) 15 minutes

Interesting, the one time I used Brewer's Gold there wasn't much of an aroma. Maybe I got the American hop & you have the German version?

The label does say German under the name. Must be the difference- you can't believe the aroma that hit me when I opened them.

Man, I have not seen a Pete's Wicked Ale around these parts in ages! it was all the rage about 10 years ago. Is it still a popular beer?

I remember a Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde that tasted like strawberry soda added to Old Style.

I remember that too- now I won't even TRY a fruit beer. I found Pete's Wicked Ale in Woodmans in Appleton about a month ago, and bought it. It's the first time in ages. I like it- it'll make a good "house" beer. My husband has been putting away my Dead Guy clone pretty quickly, and it's to replace that as our "house" beer. I like a slightly bitter, slightly hoppy, but malty beer for our every day drinking. I've been trying some different things. I like the Fat Tire clone for summer, but not for fall and winter. The Sawtooth clone is great (a mild ESB) as well as the Dead Guy. I think Pete's will fit in that class. As to whether or not it's popular, I don't know. I do know that if my husband wore cologne made out of Brewer's Gold hops, I'd be chasing him down.

Is it normal to be turned on by the smell of hops?

Why be normal?

How about just getting a muslin bag and shove some in that and tie it to the rearview mirror (like potpouri or whatever you call it). Thrown in a bit of pretty ribbon and Bobs yer uncle. Each time you get in the car give it a bit of a squeeze and enjoy the aroma


...I may put one in my ute (without the ribbon of course!)
