********************

I've read little about this new hop variety so I wanted to share my tasting notes from this batch. Please share your experiences with this new Aussie hop.

This beer is now 2 weeks in the bottle, so still a bit green. The fermentation was clean and no off-flavors are apparent.

The aroma is similar to other beers I've made with NZ/Australian hops: a little peach or tangerine, not super strong. I can smell some of the honey malt in there too.

While the lack of bittering hops leaves this beer somewhat malty up front, the 3 ounces of high AA hops balances this beer pretty nicely in the middle and the earthier aspects of the hop come through in the dry finish. The tropical and stone-fruit flavors are present, but the finish is more herbal and peppery.

I will probably buy this hop again. I think its well-suited to a single-hop beer.

Who else has tried Stella hops, and what did you think?

I just picked up some because Northern Brewer was out of Galaxy. I knew I should have picked some up last time I was there but didn't and now they're gone...
Anyways, one of the workers recommended these so I'll give em a whirl. Pairing them with Cascade in my Galaxy Pale Ale recipe I've made a few times.

Bump.

I'm trying Stella in combination with Northern Brewer in a hoppy brown ale recipe tonight.

Any other thoughts on this hop from folks who've tried them lately?
