Fresh hop release season is my favourite time of year … I’m like a kid in a candy store. My goal is to review as many as possible this year and share my thoughts with you all in Hoppiness-land! First up is Hop Project #9 from the team at Eddyline Brewing based in Nelson. Eddyline have partnered with local hop producers Clayton Hops and used fresh, green fresh Motueka hops. The aromas are a little muddled for this reviewer. A mixture of pine resins and banana which doesn’t quite work. The beer is still easy-drinking, light for a hazy and not too soupy which will appeal to many drinkers who think they are over the haze-craze!
About The Author
Mark Gower ‘aka Crafty Mark’ had his passion for beer ignited with selection to the New World Beer and Cider Awards as an associate judge in 2016. Keen to share the knowledge gained at the judging table, Mark started a weekly video blog which featured on the New World Facebook page. The blogs set out to dispel some of the myths around craft beer and bring new drinkers to the category. Being selected to judge at the prestigious Malthouse WCIPA challenge in 2019 stands out as one of his favourite moments so far…it also happens to be one of his favourite styles when enjoying a cold beer with friends. Mark hopes to start brewing his own beer soon using a recently purchased 50L brew house…watch this space!
