Freshest Haze is a longstanding favourite for the crew at The Mill Brewery with the IPA only returning once a year but always exciting hop heads. Its release has grown into quite a launch event too, with the DDH hazy beer now showcased alongside a mix of wet hop beers from some of Victoria's finest breweries at the Fresh Hop Tap Takeover.
It’s also picked up a prestigious AIBA gold medal over its life and the 2023 version of Freshest Haze certainly tastes a whole lot like a walk through a hop processing shed. It features fresh Galaxy hop cones straight from Hop Product Australia’s farm and adds them to the hazy beer with a further punch provided by a double dose of dry hopped Galaxy and Citra. That comes together for an intense wave of tropical fruit which is a little like dunking your head in a punch bowl with passionfruit, mango and guava joined by orange juice and soft floral spice part of the party too.
If you'd like to join one of Melbourne's freshest and hoppiest parties, The Mill's Fresh Hop Tap Takeover takes place on April 15 & 16. Further details are here.
