New England Style IPA Hops Sampler Pack
When it comes to brewing the perfect IPA, everyone knows hops play the starring role. But which hops and in what combination is a topic for endless debate and obsessive experimentation. Lucky for you we’ve gathered a full pound of the most promising, in-demand hop pairings for IPA lovers, so you can mix and match like a pro.
Love a juicy New England-style IPA? Then this is the perfect pack for you. NE IPAs rely on an exquisitely balanced combo of bitter and fruity hops, and this assortment offers fruit-forward classics like Citra and Mosaic, as well as hot new varietals, like El Dorado, Amarillo®, and Galaxy. Pick and choose the hops and proportions your palate dictates and you’re guaranteed to brew up an amazing IPA, custom designed by you.
Your Hops Sampler Pack includes:
4 oz Citra Hops - Tropical fruit and strong citrus make this relatively new American hop variety a great flavor and aroma addition to your brew. High alpha and strong tropical fruit aromas and flavors (think mango, papaya, and pineapple).
3 oz Mosaic Hops - Offering an incredible combo of floral, fruity and earthy notes, Mosaic hops complement a wide variety of flavors. Everything from citrus, pine, earth, herbal, mint, bubblegum, blueberry, lime peel, black pepper. This chameleon hop variety pairs perfectly with Citra and Galaxy hops.
3 oz Galaxy Hops - This in-demand Aussie hop variety showcases fresh flavors of gentle citrus and passion fruit, making it a great choice for IPAs with a juicy tropical twist. Comparable to Citra, but with a bit more grassy flavor. Due to the high cohumulone content of this hop, it works best as a late addition or dry hop.
3 oz El Dorado Hops - This spectacular, new dual-purpose hop brings both firm, balanced bittering properties, as well as a unique, intensely fruity flavor and aroma. Bright, tropical flavors of pineapple and mango dance with aromas of pear, watermelon, stone fruit and candy. A true feast for the palate.
3 oz Amarillo® Hops - A favorite of craft brewers, Amarillo® hops are often described as a turbocharged version of Cascade, but with a distinctly different orange-forward character. It’s an excellent flavor/aroma hop for American Ales, with enticing notes of floral, tropical and spice, alongside loads of orange/lemon/grapefruit citrus thanks to its sky-high Myrcene oil content. Amarillo® can be hard to come by. One taste and you’ll understand the demand!

This variety pack was a fun way for me, a novice homebrewer, to explore hop types and combinations in my latest IPA brews, branching out from simply following the kit recipes.
This selection of hops is awesome! it allows you to easily create your own hop addition schedule. I used them in a NEIPA and am very pleased with the result.
I am not a brewer, got those to add to cold brewed teas, spa waters, tereres and ka’ays. 1 pellet per 16floz of cold water left overnight does a great job. All varieties taste different and are of top quality. Will buy again when run out, they last forever though:)
