Barossa Valley Brewing Harvest Heaven 2020 Wet Hop Ale

Style
Wet Hop IPA
ABV
6.0%

For the third year in a row, the Barossa Valley Brewing team ventured into the Adelaide Hills to help farm hops for their wet hop release. Within two hours of pulling them off the vine, they were in a fermenter filled with fresh wort, imparting their fresh juiciness into the beer. The result is a beer that allows you to take a mini holiday to a tropical island, even while in lockdown.

Barossa Valley’s Wet Hop IPA possesses a few different elements compared to some other SA wet hop releases, which I've generally found to be quite resinous and a tad earthy; this one takes on more tropical aromas, kicking off those holiday vibes with juicy, fresh pineapple. There's a soft, almost creamy mouthfeel that supports a slightly sweet and light malt structure, while the flavour is all juicy pineapples – about 56kg worth – and the finish is one with a restrained bitterness and thoughts of a sunny vacation.
