Recent times has seen the traditional hop growing regions of Germany endeavouring to breed flamboyant and expressive aroma and flavour hops to rival the varieties offered by the new world US, New Zealand and Australia growers. We thought it was about time to see what these new German hops were about and have sourced the high oil varieties of Polaris, Mandarina, Bavaria, Saphire and Herkules. This German IPA has come out bursting with fresh stone fruit, mandarin and grassy aromas. The flavour is choc full of spicy resinous hops, and is rounded out by a solid whack of bitterness.

aroma’s of passionfruit, rockmelon, resin. slight white head, a touch off clear. low sweetness, high carbonation, as it warms its going weird, can’t put any name to it. grassy aroma’s, it seems quite a light bodied beer. a bitter dry after taste.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014 Tap at Old Faithful. Pours hazy golden with a firm white head. Nose is quite unique - very herbal with heavy citric zest and lemon myrtle. Taste is grassy and herbal with heavy citrus tang and stone fruits. Quite unique beer. Great balance between the herbal notes and citrus zest. I like it a lot

Tap at old faithful. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is quite grassy/herbal with citrus notes and zest. Quite appealing. Taste is well balanced. Citric zest and herbal/clove spices backed a subtle grassy bitterness. Liked this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a bright hazy golden with some pillowy off white head. Nose is peach, passionfruit, and an interesting note of fresh cut grass mingled with dirt. Imagine setting the blades too low and essentially peeling off all of your lawn. Flavor starts quite spicy, piney, citrussy, then a fair dose of grass on the mid palate, and the finish is again fairly spicy, a little piney, some more citrus and a nice biscuit note which I love in IPAs. Medium body with standard carbonation, nothing interesting on that front. Very interesting flavor profile. The peach character and especially the strong cut grass are something I haven’t experienced in other hop varietals. Worth it simply to try the obscure hops, but still a solid beer.

Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows spicy, herbal and floral hops with some grassy notes followed by some sweet biscuity malt. Similar flavours, very herbal, grassy and spicy. Just a touch of malt underneath.
