Summer Hops Pellets 1 oz. - AU
Australian Summer is a unique seedless aroma hop developed and grown in Australia. Summer provides distinctive light apricot and melon fruit notes nicely balanced by a background hop character which can be used to great effect in many beer styles.
It is also often called "Summer Saaz," as it bears aroma characteristics in line with Saaz-types. Distinctive Southern Hemisphere earth/spice undercurrent, low cohumulone, good oil content, and low alpha-acids mean it is a very versatile aroma hop.
A limit of 8 oz per order exists due to extremely limited availability.
|Country of Origin||Australia/New Zealand|
|Alpha Acid||Low (0-5%)|
Made my new all time favorite recipe with this hop. With this hop you have some melon flavors come though along with some citrusy notes. Perfect for my summer guzzler.
Great hop. Dank and citrus at the same time
Title says it all. Using the full ounce to make 1 gallon of a SMaSH hoppy pale (around 35-40 IBU, so think Firestone Walker's Pale 31) with US 2-row malt so I can really get the sense of what these taste/smell like. The pellets themselves smell great and I'm dry hopping today; I've got high hopes for this brew.
Not getting much peach flavor. Not bad though. I like mild floral hops similar to hallertauer.
These hops were exactly what I was expecting based on the description.
