So I got my hands on about 3.5 oz (100 grams) of what's called Polaris hops through a small local brewery who got it from United Bottles. Here's a quick little run down on them (from United):
"New high alpha breeding line with strong, pleasant, fruity, refreshing, Gletschereisbonbon (glacier-like) notes.
The guy I emailed from United called them a German version of Cascade on steroids. That's probably because this baby clocks in at 21.5% AA
Has anyone else has ever brewed anything with these? I was thinking about making an a super
simple 2-Row only IPA with it this weekend but only using .5oz for bittering (along with some Citra at 20, 15 & 5 min) and then dry hopping with about an ounce for a 5 gal batch. Anyone have and suggestions or tips on using this beast?
