This single hop New England IPA features a hop in its experimental stage. HBC-685 is the temporary name given to this variety while it undergoes both brewing and growing trials. Once experimental hops are determined to have flavors and aromas that brewers like while also having the right growing traits to be success on an agricultural level it will be given a proper name and then introduced on a larger scale.
The Hop Breeding Company (HBC) is the group responsible for the creation of this and other popular hops like: Citra, Mosaic, Sabro and more yet to be named hops.
