Australian Summer Hop Profile
It’s not difficult to see how the Australian hops variety, Summer, got its name after experiencing its sublime and delicate notes of apricot and melon. Others have even noted elements of grass, peach, passionfruit and citrus.
A descendant of Saaz, Summer was created by Hop Products Australia in 1997 and is a low alpha aroma hop that can be well-utilized late in the boil. It is however even better suited to dry hopping and it is in this capacity that its apricot and melon bouquet really shines. In any capacity, it is not as spicy as its Czech parent.
