Hop Nation’s 30-G Single Hop Series is a journey into what can happen when a rather substantial volume of a single hop variety can do to four beers; each is a 7 percent ABV IPA triple-dry-hopped with 30 grams of the green stuff per litre of beer. Each of them is pale and hazy; first, let’s start with Cashmere, which was my personal pick of the quartet. Here, the American hop provides a hard to define but rich berry flavour, which sits closest to raspberries but also brought to mind blackberries, while those flavours were joined by melon, a light citrus and seriously smooth finish.

Next up is Citra, where it was notes of lemondrop lollies – bringing an instant flashback to a store in Sovereign Hill – which led the charge, along with slices of pineapple picked straight from the tin. Third up is Nelson Sauvin, which provided a punch of kiwifruit, lime, gooseberries, and that fairly distinct note of diesel often associated with some Kiwi hops. And, finally, we reach Sabro; while that hop is often closely associated with coconut, I picked up less of that and instead found fresh cream and particularly ripe flavours of mandarin.
