Working Title are very privileged to participate in the Freestyle Hops Research Collective, gaining access to advanced selections of newly developed hops grown around Nelson in NZ. Amongst a range of possibilities, was Paradisi. Serendipitously this is a variety that displays exciting white grapefruit with mixed tropical aromas, flavours.
The aim of this beer is to highlight the complexity of this super fruity NZ Hop. The process involves late kettle, short whirlpool, dip and DDH techniques to bring out the citrus and tropical aromas. Over an oat heavy base, they let the Paradisi do the talking. A super juicy and tropical aroma with soft lime citrus and stone fruit flavours and that characteristic NZ diesel dankness. It’s unsurprisingly complex and a hop that will definitely be added to the repertoire going forward. 8% ABV
