Passionfruit is a relatively new hop aroma development, with the locally grown Galaxy being one of the first varieties bursting onto the scene with a passiona-like character. More and more modern hops are being bred, selected and harvested for this characteristic, so we’re celebrating some of the best “Passionfruit” hops currently on the market along with a hefty dose of passionfruit juice in this very special Juicy.
A baseline of Australian Galaxy hops is supported by an early-harvest of the relatively old-school US hop Amarillo (referred to as a “tropical” expression) as well as some funky new varieties including Strata (we get lots of strawberry and dank, sweaty, ripe passionfruit) and Zappa (bred from the wild neomexicanus varietal said to produce marijuana-like characteristics – with dank, herbal, purple, mint, savoury and tropical (especially passionfruit and mango)).
This beer is triple dry hopped and as with all of our Juicy beers is best drunk as fresh as possible to enjoy the fresh hop aromas while they’re at their peak.
