Vic Secret™ Hops Profile
Vic Secret™ is fairly new to the game, only being introduced in 2013. She hails from the same Australian and U.K. roots of her sister Topaz™. Anticipate flavors and aromatics of clean pineapple and passionfruit, with a slight, resinous whiff lingering in the background. Vic Secret’s approachability and high alpha acid content make her a nice addition to any hop-forward beer style. Her characteristics are best highlighted in whirlpool or dry-hop additions. Vic Secret™ possesses similar yet lighter characteristics than her peer Galaxy™, but she’s no less of a breakout star in her own right.
Vic Secret is an Australian hop known for its bright tropical character of pineapple, pine, and passionfruit. Similar to Galaxy but with a lighter profile. Highly recommended as a whirlpool or dry hop addition where the tropical notes will really shine. Displays a more earthy character when added late in the boil.
