Feral Brewpub Series Hopfen Fahrt (bottles & kegs)

Feral Brewing (CCA)

Released July 7th, 2014

Hopfen Fahrt first saw the light of day as part of Feral's Brewpub Series of limited releases in draught form. It's a beer that uses a bunch of new wave German hops just arrived in small amounts Down Under. It's unusual hop character made it "one of the most divisive beers we have produced," according to the brewery - very much a love it or hate it beer for drinkers. So, being Feral, they decided they should brew loads more of it and unleash it again in bottle form across the land. It's the same beer as last time around, one that plunders the "flamboyant and expressive aroma and flavour hops" now being attempted by the traditional hop growing regions of Germany that gave the world the varieties from which many of the hops we know and love today were developed. The growers are hoping to match the kind of hops coming out of the US, NZ and Oz, so the Feral brewers selected a bunch of high oil varieties (ie the most flavoursome and aromatic), namely Palaris, Mandarina Bavaria, Sapphire and Herkules. The result is an IPA "bursting with stone fruit, rockmelon, mandarin and grassy aromas" and a flavour dominated by spicy, resinous hops and packing a serious bitterness.
