I think that carnevale might be dryhopped too.

I'll go back and see if i can corner the brewer that made the comments. I don't want to say the name of the brewery especially since i might have missed the context of the conversation. It did seem really weird to both my buddy and i as we are in a center of extreme hoppiness, but we both heard the same thing.

I'll check it out and report back to ya'll. Twist my arm to go a brewery, life is hard sometimes.

Is this a brewery that makes a lot of lagers?

dirty_martini- it could be that, they may have something against going big on hops. Strange to say that in SoCal but thinking back to what i had there and looking at their website - they're generally on the lighter side compared to some of the other breweries in the north county.

Well my original statement was mostly right. A buddy went back and confirmed it, they don't agree with making a pale ale the non-traditional way. Of course i don't see what's traditional about making a 100+ IBU beverage, but i'll still take the brewski.

the only brewers that dislike dry hopping, to my limited understanding, are continental european brewers. germans and belgians see fresh hop aroma as a flaw.

I came across a traditional cask-ale style microbrewery on the isle of Islay in Scotland; asked them if they'd ever experimented with dry-hopping. They then replied that it seemed like a fad brewers did a decade ago, but they tried it and didn't understand what it added - not even derisively, just entirely dismissive.

Shame really, but that attitude isn't too out of place over here in the UK.

Shoot, I love it so much that I dry hop my dry hops!
