CRISPR tech brews hopless beer with hoppy taste

If the next beer you drink seems a bit "hoppy," don't be surprised to find that it hasn't a pinch of hops in it. Biologists at the University of California, Berkeley have used CRISPR technology to create a hop-free brew that still has all the flavor and aroma of conventional beer.
