Your Hops Sampler Pack includes:
3 oz Galaxy Hops - This Aussie hop variety has taken the craft beer industry by storm, showing off fresh flavors of gentle citrus and passion fruit in notable IPAs and pale ales. Comparable to Citra, but with the tropical fruit toned down and 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 Nelson Sauvin Hops - Named after the grapes of Sauvignon Blanc, this sought-after hop variety adds the enticing aroma of crushed gooseberry with intriguing underlying notes of spice -- black pepper, mace, and allspice. A great dual-purpose hop, with low cohumulone, good oil content, and an overall distinctive character that keeps this intriguing New Zealand hop in high demand.
3 oz Motueka Hops - A descendant of Saaz bursting with tropical citrus notes, this New Zealand hop variety is a great addition for use in European-style lagers. With a typical alpha of 6.5-7.5%, Motueka is an excellent variety for single hop bills with multiple applications.
3 oz Australian Enigma Hops - This high alpha descendant of the Swiss Tettnang hop is true to its name. Mysterious and changeable, Enigma offers a surprising variety of flavors -- everything from pinot gris and raspberries, to red currant and tropical fruit. Its unique, chameleon-like flavors and aromas shift dramatically, depending on how it is used. Dry hop or add late in the brew to get the most out of this Australian beaut.4 oz New Zealand Pacific Gem Hops - A high alpha hop with strong bittering properties, Pacific Gem packs a distinctive zing, alongside enticing flavors of ripe melon, blackberries and oak with earthy and floral tones. Great for both early and late additions, this consistent, all-purpose New Zealand hop has a good balance of oils, which fill the air with heady aromas and add a delicate complexity to almost any brew.
