The Beer School Hop Pack is a great little way to learn a little about beer while you enjoy a drink. The pack includes four different single hop IPAs, inside a neat cardboard gift pack with information about hops and how they influence a beer. The hops in the pack include Galaxy, Ella (formerly Stella), Summer and recent release Vic Secret.
Galaxy. This highlights the character of a locally grown hop variety, Galaxy. We have added generous amounts of whole hop flowers to this brew, both in the kettle and the conditioning tank. Galaxy, it's out of this world!
Ella. This highlights the character of a locally developed hop variety, Ella. We have added a generous amount of Ella whole hop flowers to this brew, both in the kettle and the conditioning tank. It is our attempt to show you the true characters of this hop.
Summer. Summer is a hop variety formerly known as Summer Saaz and has been developed by Hop Products Australia. Those who've ploughed into the Galaxy and Stella IPAs will find this one much more subtle; don't expect to be blown away by pungent aromas, instead it's a gentler, floral aroma, slightly earthy. There's a pretty full body too and a bitterness that works its way gently, but persistently, across your palate.
Vic Secret. A relative newcomer hop Vic Secret, was destined for the chop from Hop Products Australia's hop breeding program until it was featured in the Bridge Road 2011 Harvest Ale and turned out to have unexpected potential. Resinous, Grassy and Mild Fruit Flavours are characteristics of this hop variety.
