H.O.P. Initiative Package 3
Package 3 includes:
- Full Set of Naturalist Series Soap (4 bars)
- (1) Stick of Hop Balm
An all-natural base is supplemented with hemp oil, oatmeal, hop lupulin, and dried hops.
The oatmeal and dried hops create a raised texture throughout the bar, enhancing the exfoliation process.
Woods: A blend of Fir, Scotch, and Cedar. It's where the forest meets the workshop. Inspired by Henry David Thoreau's, "Walden", the aromas of split pine and needled trails bring about moments of solitude and internal clarity - "Live deliberately."
Peak: Simple but pleasing. A modern take on "fresh from the barber." Inspired by Norman Clyde's numerous first ascents through the High Sierras, Peak's aromas of bergamot, cardamom, amber, pine and jasmine, will propel you through a day of "... riding avalanches."
Arena: Inspired by T. Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena", aromas of cedar and leather are mixed with hits of blood orange and fir needle. Academia meets adventure. The gentleman's study heads out on safari.
Nectar: Inspired by Enid Michael, the first female ranger-naturalist at Yosemite, Nectar is the newest edition to the Naturalist Series. One could argue that Michael literally wrote the book on wildflower botany. Nectar is citrusy-sweet with herbal undertones; reminiscent of the wildflowers at Cook's Meadow, where the hummingbirds gather and get their fill.
Hop Balm (lip balm):
Newport Mint - Named for one of the hop varieties grown at Bentley B. Hops, Newport Mint awakens and soothes your senses with an explosion of peppermint.
Lemon Cascade - Named for one of the hop varieties grown at Bentley B. Hops, Lemon Cascade is a citrus bomb, as waves of pink grapefruit and lemongrass are threaded with subtle hints of pine, resulting in a sweet earthiness.
Hop Bill - While working on formulas for The Alchemist's Heady Topper lip balm, the desired outcome was to capture as many of the flavor profiles one might find in a complex IPA. The result... Hop Bill. Quiet cheers went up when The Alchemist went in a more "Heady" direction, for a new hop balm was added to the Bentley B. Hops line. Hop Bill transitions in and out of soft pine, sweet citrus (blood orange and lime), and juicy stone fruit (nectarine).
Coffee Stout - Coffee drinkers and Porter/Stout drinkers unite! The aromatics of freshly roasted coffee beans are put boldly forth without apology. All the while, cocoa nibs and brown sugar tussle for accolades.
