People have just started brewing Fresh Hop ales up here. Most of them will hit the market late this month or in October.

Yeah, I have had the S Hemi. It is made with dry hops shipped out of NZ. Really nice beer.

But the ones I want to try next are the WET or FRESH hop beers. They have 2 coming out.

I heard that the Estate Harvest was only available at the brewery. Now, they bottle it I guess, but I still don't think it will be distributed very far.

Bad news, sir. You're in for a malt bomb. I accidentally forgot about one of these in my closet and I opened it this weekend.

these are beers that are supposed to be as fresh as possible. The hops profile just dies after a year in this one.

Im sipping on the SN Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale tonight. It's actually quite good. Very flowery up front, with a spicy finish. Doesn't really have the citrus flavor/aroma I have come to expect from most of the SN offerings, but I really like it. Here is a link to the info if your interested.

I just opened it tonight and it was amazing! Very Hoppy nice clean and crisp taste too. It did have a slight malty after taste but the hop presence was definitely still there.
