Like the sharp, citrusy aroma of the hops in your beer? Thank terpene. It’s also a great natural pesticide. Our favorite way to remember that terpene is in our lives as it detoxes our livers? Squeezing the oil out of a citrus peel, setting it on fire and letting the result settle gently over a great cocktail.
