Fresh Hop Shilshole Bay IPA

Bursting with fresh lupulin lushness!

With Perrault Farms' wet Citra hops

We took our Ballard TapRoom mainstay, the Shilshole Bay IPA, and loaded it with 100#’s of fresh Citra hops straight from Perrault Farms in Toppenish, WA. Balanced perfectly on a bed of local Skagit Valley malts, then kegged and served un-freakin’-filtered.

Named for our favorite bay just down the way!

Beverage Specs



Beer math on ABV (Alcohol By Volume) is pretty straightforward… the Higher the ABV, the more alcohol in the beer. No rocket science necessary.



Generally speaking, a high IBU beer will have a more bitter taste than a lower IBU beer.



The OG measures solids in the wort before fermentation to consistently arrive at the same alcohol content of a beer. Pretty neat, huh?


These hops are fresh picked in Yakima, driven over the hill to our Ballard brewery, and added immediately into the wort, ensuring the highest lupulin-content of every little hop bud.


Citra has become synonymous with craft IPAs. It’s a dual purpose high alpha acid hop, meaning it is great for any and all hop additions, especially when you get ’em fresh!

Perrault Farms

We’re lucky to call our Yakima farmers our friends, and the Perrault family is among ‘em.
Located in Toppenish, WA, Perrault Farms is responsible for breeding some of the most prolific craft beer hops of the last two decades, including Citra.

Beer 101: Fresh Hops

The unspoken rule of fresh hopped beers is they are to be added to the brew within 24 hours of being picked from the field, or as I like to say the “dirt-to-wort” time.  As you may have guessed the fresher the better so being a brewer in Seattle I am a mere couple hours drive from the Yakima Valley where an overwhelming majority of the US hop supply is grown and is one of the largest hop growing regions in the world.

    The hops in Fresh Hop IPAs aren’t the same as brewers use in year-round beers. Where those have been dried and kilned for use throughout the year, these just-harvested hops have little pockets of lupulin glands bursting with hop acids & essential oils full of terpenes—the flavor and aroma molecules—yum!
