Like a tropical fruit salad, an explosion of juicy passionfruit, gooseberry, sweet mango, and ruby red spring forth. All this balanced by dank, grassy, and floral hop undertones.
There’s something special about New Zealand, and her hops.
Although New Zealand accounts for a relatively small portion of the world’s hop acreage, the quality and range of what is grown there is breathtaking. The New Zealand terroir seems to impart hops with some of the most exotic and surprising characteristics imaginable.
Perhaps no hop embodies this notion more than Nelson Sauvin, the star of our show here. It is so named for its one-of-a-kind profile of gooseberry and passionfruit, reminiscent of New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc wines.
Paired with Nelson Sauvin is another New Zealander: Motueka. A more subtle hop with an old world pedigree, but featuring a tropical-lime twist.
Our Double IPA is bursting with hops; well over 5 pounds per barrel of it!
A decidedly bitter, yet crisp and easy drinking Spring beer.
