At hop harvest in the Yakima Valley, we were introduced to and enamoured by a new state-of-the-art hop product - Frozen Fresh Hops. So we decided to order a whole frozen shipment container worth in order to be the first brewery in the Southern Hemisphere to brew with them as part of a special dual release with our great mates at Balter! Anna showcases Simcoe, Mosaic and Citra frozen whole hop cones on a resinous West Coast IPA base. These hops are signature hops for both breweries and provide a delicate yet rich profile of grapefruit, lime and mango. These flavour notes are accentuated thanks to the Frozen Fresh Hops added throughout the brewing process. This beer was brewed alongside Elsa, a New England-style IPA, brewed with the same hops. While these beers showcase the exciting future of hops products, they also reinforce our need to stop letting DJ name such important beers!
