Altitude Brewing are nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in beautiful Queenstown. For this year’s fresh hop season, they have created two beers – both using the same base but hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops grown in two different parts of the South Island. The beer I’ve chosen today is hopped with Nelson Sauvin grown in the Nelson region and easily demonstrates those fresh-cut grass characters we all love. Some nice apricot aromas are in the mix and the beer is very smooth. The best part for me was the light oil slick left on my tongue that only fresh hops can deliver, a truly great time of the beer brewing year!
