DKAT Vic Secret
IPA - Imperial / Double New England
Brewery: Deeds Brewing
Location: Glen Iris, Victoria
Beer Description: Social media is a special place. We always like to take note of the most enjoyable comments we see out there. One of our favourites had to do with a particular hop. The drinker stated, “Don't Know About That [...] Hop!" However, the focus of their vexation didn’t appear in the dry hop, and only in the beer in an amount that it wouldn’t have registered even on the most sensitive of palates.
Welcome to our series where we explore what hops can do solo! Enter Vic Secret, one of our favourite Australian hops!
Brewed in partnership with Hop Products Australia, the fine purveyors of Vic Secret.

IPA - American
Brewery: New Realm Brewing Company
Location: Atlanta, GA
Beer Description: The first beer from Brewmaster Mitch Steele's New Realm brewhouse couldn't have been anything but a hop-forward, west-coast inspired IPA... this IPA. It's dry hopped with Simcoe & Centennial and is perfectly hoppy with a classic piney, resiny and citrusy hop profile and a mild malt character in both nose and taste. Bitterness is smooth, but substantial and it finishes dry but with a balanced body. Mitch says "it's everything I want in an IPA. It's pleasantly bitter, yet drinks smoothly and has a wonderful blend of hop flavors dominating the aroma, taste and finish."
