4 Pines Keller Door Series 2013: Single Hops

4 Pines (CUB)

Released February 7, 2013

The first Keller Door release from 4 Pines for 2013 is a new incarnation of 2012's popular Single Hop Series. The concept of the Single Hop Series is for the brewers to make the exact same beer several times over, with the only difference to the recipe being the variety of hop that's added. This year there are three beers on show, made with a malt bill consisting of 95% Ale malt, 4% Wheat and 1% Crystal malt. The hop varieties are Centennial from the USA, Hallertau Mittlefruh from Germany and Target from the UK. To give an idea of the sorts of differences to expect, the aromatic Centennial hop is widely used in American Pale and Golden Ales, Hallertau Mittlefruh should give lemon and lychee aromas while Target should bring through citrus and passionfruit. If you get a chance to taste these beers side by side, you'lll find that the Single Hop Series is probably one of the most rewarding - not to mention delicious - ways to discover the role that hops play in a beer. And if that necessitates a trip to 4 Pines at Manly, well... NO
