Woolshed Brewery Hort 9909

Woolshed Brewery

Released September 30, 2019

Ahead of BrewCon 2019, hop supplier HopCo enlisted breweries across Australia to help them showcase a lineup of experimental hops, among them two varieties from New Zealand: HORT 4337 and HORT 9909. The latter was shipped to the South Australian Riverland where head brewer Jackson Beavis at Woolshed Brewery figured they'd sit well in a New World single hop pale lager.

The end result is a refreshing beer, straw to light yellow in colour, with a perfectly white persistent head. It definitely earns the New World tag, as some zingy citrus, namely lime and lemon, mixes in with gentle floral and spice notes that act as a reminder of the hop variety's Old World parentage. The spice is amped up a little to taste, bringing in a touch of earthiness, light rockmelon notes and a clean dry finish to what's a highly quaffable drop.
