Little Creatures Wet Hopped Pale Ale

Style
Wet Hopped Pale Ale

Brewing this beer was a little like the Amazing Race for hops, as you can read about in the story we ran on it here. Little Creatures wanted to see what their flagship would taste like when brewed with freshly harvested hops instead of dried flowers, ending up putting 100kg into the hopback where usually there would be 25kg. The result is a surprisingly different beer, one that's nailed spot on by the head brewer, in that the hops are rather conspicuous by their absence on the nose but appear with interest in the mouth; once the familiar Pale malt sweetness has passed, the hops come out to play, making for an enjoyable and interesting twist on one of Australia's favourite beers.
