WFFC Cincinnati Hop Drops – Making Better Bitter Flavor with Hop Extracts

By: Lisa Sanders (Frutarom USA)

The WFFC Cincinnati Chapter had their spring event at MadTree Brewing on April 29th, 2015. Tony Moore, Chief Flavorist of Flavor Producers, delighted guests with his personality and his knowledge of bitter flavors. Moore spoke about the bitterness profile of Isoalpha acids and its derivatives as well as where the acids hit the tongue. He noted that America is finally leaving the sweet flavor profiles behind and is now having a love affair with bitter flavors. Attendees smelled several varieties of Hops ranging from extremely minty notes to sweet caramel notes. Additionally, they tasted solutions of bitters, along with Hop Water, a new product. Jeff Hunt, Owner of MadTree, discussed the history of MadTree, which distributes in Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, OH, and two Northern Kentucky counties. Hunt showcased different brews that the attendees enjoyed that evening. In bitter beers, IPA's are a huge hit. Expect to see sour and/or tart beers that have a lot of lactic acid emerging. The WFFC is thankful to all attendees for their support.
