COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Maris (1427) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 19/8/2014. Pours a clear very light golden with a bi bright head. Has a light passionfruit aroma. Its a quite curious beast in the mouth, with apple and sweet and sour citrus fruit and some bready malt, but its soon overtaken by a big, very dry, chemical tasting bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. It has the makings of a good beer but the finish is just a bit harsh and disconcerting. Interesting but doesnt quite pull it off.

From a bottle. Pours cloudy amber, mild citrus and a definite grapefruit flavour with a resin feel. Good stuff.

aromas of passionfruit, rockmelon, resin. slight white head, a touch off clear. low sweetness, high carbonation, as it warms its going weird, cant put any name to it. grassy aromas, it seems quite a light bodied beer. a bitter dry after taste.

hawthorne00 (3670) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale gold with a white head. Aroma of honeydew melon, tinned peaches, mandarins, grass, pine. Sweet with loads of peach, biscuit, some grass. Dryish with a spicy menthol and quite bitter finish but the sweetness still hangs around a tad. Probably would work better in summer. Didnt do much for me but didnt hate it.

Jado (795) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, under-ripe peach, flowers and cut grass. Taste is citrus at the front, quickly giving way to a firm grapefruit and lemon zest bitterness with a touch of pine resin. White grape and orange at the end. Lingering bitter finish with a grassy aftertaste. Enjoyed this.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Pale golden colour, solid white head. Interesting sour citrus aroma with some piney flavours with grass and apple. Zesty and grassy taste and oddly light bodied. Its okay but I wouldnt rate it amongst other Feral beers that are typically excellent

Niksko (615) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
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 havent experienced in other hop varietals. Worth it simply to try the obscure hops, but still a solid beer.
