Red Hill Hop Harvest 2013

Style
Fresh hop ESB
ABV
6.0%

The fruits of Red Hill's annual hop-picking day is a beer based on the traditional ESB - or Extra Special Bitter - style from the UK. Thus, while it is the showcase for the freshly picked hops from their own hop farm, lovingly and sweatily plucked by the owners and their friends one March weekend, it's also a pretty malt-driven beer. Cloudy copper brown to look at, the aroma is as much toffee and nuts as it is hoppy, with the fresh Willamette and Goldings hops coming to bear more in the mouth. There they add some earthy, spicy characters and, more than anything, a dense, lingering resiny bitterness typical of highly hopped fresh hop beers. NB - We're a little late on listing this one so if it sounds like your bag, go find some soon!
