We've had the unique opportunity to work with Plant and Food Research and New Zealand Hops to trial a range of new unreleased hops. Inside this can is a promising new cultivar – the product of an exhaustive and rigorous breeding programme. In our small batch trials it has shown enough promise to warrant a call back. Like an aspiring actor this may be its one and only chance to shine. In this series of hop trial beers we aim to give each aspiring bine its best opportunity to impress. Here we've chosen an IPA, with a supporting cast of Pilsner, Pale, Sour and Rye malt designed to lift, but not overpower this hop hopeful.

Once you've had the beer, head to http://hoptrial.co.nz/ and leave your feedback for Plant and Food Research and New Zealand Hops.

Product Reviews


  1. 5 Star Review A delicious fruity, floral IPA.

    Hazy pale golden colour, aromas of lavender and lychee, sweet peach/passionfruit/lemon flavours, lots of bready malt, floral, grassy hops, strong bitterness. Delicious!

  2. 5 Star Review Ok, this is expensive, but it's actually a bargain

    First, I love the name: garage project :) Second, big high five for the can (cans protect beer against light and air, it keeps beer fresher than bottles, and it's infinitely recyclable). Third, this beer is amazingly, crisply bitter. LOVED it. I've read in the description that this was a trial with some NZ hops and a mix of selected malt, let me tell you it's a complete success, at least for an IPA lover like me. It's tasty, fresh, with a touch of resinous notes, clear and dry finish. I want more.
