Has anyone brewed with Newport Hops? I'd never heard of them until today. I did a little research and found an article about them here. I also found that Rogue has used them in their Hop Heaven Ale, which I believe you can only get at their pubs in CA. Anyone had the pleasuring of sipping this ale? It also looks like Rogue may have had a hand in 'beta testing' these hops and may have been the only brewers using them for a time.

I saw today that Freshops now has them and I'm considering buying some. But I wanted to get opinions from y'all!

So the name Newport most likely refers to the Rogue Brewery's home town in Oregon?

I've never tried em. Sounds like a fun experiment

I was hoping you'd chime in here, Janx, and tell me you'd had this ale. Or used the hops! I can get Rogue beers here, but not this one, AFAIK.

I think I'm gonna spring for them. I won a $25 Visa gift card and I think I'm gonna use it!

I have used these hops as a bittering hop in my ESB, one of the best beers I've made so far. Found your link to the forum as I Googled them to find another supplier as mine was out of them. Have not had a chance to try the Rogue beer.

I just bought a pound of these. Thinking of doing a Two-hearted clone, but subbing out the centennials for newport hops. Just to kind of showcase the hop, which I'm not too familiar with. Think that would be good?

Being from Rhode Island, I had to try Newport hops. I used them to bitter an American amber which I called Aquidneck Amber - Aquidneck being the island Newport is on. I then used Cascade and Challenger for flavor and aroma.

The beer is very good, one of the best I've made.

I used them in my best beer yet, my American Winter Brown. So far as I can tell, they gave me a nice clean bitterness.

As this was developed in Oregon, it's probably named for Newport, Oregon

Yeah, I know. There's some vineyards in the Newport, RI area, but no hop farms! I had to use it just because of the name.
