A handful of bars around Australia have offered their punter the chance to educate themselves hoppily courtesy of Bridge Road's single hop IPAs and now you can do it from the comfort of your favourite armchair / hammock / ditch. We doubt you need telling about Galaxy, the big cheese of Hop Products Australia's development program in recent years that's doing its thing in beers across Oz, while Stella is described as its stepsister - a cross between an Aussie and European variety. The former is all about the tropical fruit aromas, the latter combines them with a herbal twist. Both are jam-packed with hops, giving your bitter part of your palate a solid workout. You'll soon be able to try them three ways too, as the Bridge Road / Ní¸gne í? collaboration India Saison that used both is making its way to Oz right now, while another batch is set to be brewed at the Beechworth brewery any day now.
