What happens when you want a hit of hops without the beer? And how many SodaStreams can you conceivable destroy by pouring hops in with your water? They’re age-old problems and Batch Brewing’s solution is their The Hip Hip Hop range, a series of hop-infused sparkling water. It's a drinks category that's picked up growing attention in America, with Batch's approach inspired by their heroes from hip hop and is free from alcohol, carbs and calories.
The Sydney brewery say that as well as dry-hopping the sparkling water, they’ve added some brewer’s yeast to help pull out the aromas and flavours craft beer drinkers know and love. The first release in the series is Citrus Banger, which was made with Citra and Sabro hops and as soon as you crack the can, you certainly can tell there are hops to be found. It pours with a slight yellow tinge and brings a classic American combination of orange, lemon, pine and a gentle tropical wave of lychee and mango.
