Single hop hazy IPA featuring Nectaron hops. Nectaron is an aroma type hop developed in collaboration with New Zealand’s Plant & Food Research. Nectaron is a sister to the Wamei hop and daughter of the Pacific Jade hop. This hop variety was first bred in 2004, but took almost 17 years to be released commercially in 2020. Known for being full of juicy tropical flavors of passion fruit, grapefruit and pineapple we were very excited to get our hands on some.
Pouring a thick hazy orange-gold colour, with a lasting off-white head. On the nose it’s incredibly citrusy with loads of fresh pineapple and grapefruit upfront. Supported by hints of pine and touch of grassyness, the tastes follows the nose with a deliciously citrus tang from the pineapple and grapefruit, finishing with a nice bitterness that balances out the sip. Full bodied and juicy, with moderated carbonation and a creamy smooth mouth feel.
