Tonight we’ll be launching our new “One Hop Policy” series of single-hop hazy pale ales.
The first beer puts the spotlight on Nelson Sauvin, a hop grown in New Zealand whose name derives from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. While most IPAs use several aroma and bittering hops to create a distinctive hoppy blend, limiting ourselves to just one hop allows the drinker to experience the flavor of that particular hop in isolation and better appreciate its unique character.
As their name suggests, Nelson Sauvin hops impart flavors similar to a typical New World white wine, with bright notes of freshly crushed grapes and tropical fruit, followed by earthy hop bitterness. Try it on tap exclusively at 京A Brewpub.
