Flora Obscura

Dry-Hopped Porter

Flora Obscura, literally dark flower, features massive dry-hopping, with Simcoe, Cascade, Amarillo, Mosaic and Galaxy hops over a robust porter base composed of two-row pale malt, two varieties of caramel malt, raw wheat and chocolate malt. Originally born as a test beer for our Tours & Rec Center, Flora Obscura explores the interplay of hops suggestive of orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors with rich chocolate and espresso notes provided by roasted malts.
