Otway Estate Wild Hop Organic Ale

Prickly Moses

Released May 3rd, 2011

One of the more unusual of this year's crop of hop harvest beers, this saw the Otway Estate brewers track down a field of wild hops on the edge of the Otway Ranges that had once been used to supply the long-defunct Ballarat Brewery. Having filled their truck with Canterbury Goldings, they threw everything - hop flowers and vines - into the mash tun and continued adding more hops right through the process in a beer with a traditional English Special Bitter malt backbone. Brewer Luke Scott says it has "earthy, spicy" hop characters, a "touch of nectary sweetness - peach and apricot - and fresh green hop flower characteristics coming through". It's keg only with the first one outside the brewery being tapped at Josie Bones' Hop Harvest Dinner on May 4.
