Single Hop Series
Monogamy is our ongoing, single hop series of pale ales -- a delicious and interesting (controlled) experiment designed to give us all a better understanding of what a hop can do when it flies solo. We keep our base recipe and brewing processes the same, but switch up the hop variable each time. A particularly troublesome beer for those who feel they....Must. Collect. Them. All.
Throughout the years we've brewed and rebrewed this recipe with over 20 different hops, and in 2017 we expanded the series to include double dry-hopped versions (for that nth degree of hope aromatics).
Wakatu: Extremely soft -- notes of cantaloupe, coconut and cut flowers ride a very restrained bitterness that finishes with a hint of watermelon. (Ossington only.)
Motueka: Aromas and flavors of bright citrus and juicy nectarine take centre stage, leading the way for a finish of blueberries and lime zest.
