About this Recipe: 

Single hop beers are the best ways of getting to know unique hop varieties. New Zealand hops are known for their expressiveness and this hop is no exception. With a clean malt bill, this beer has an aroma of citrus and resin and a soft bitterness on the palate. We used WLP008 East Coast Ale Yeast to push the citrus notes and leave some malt character which balances the bitterness. We also did not use any finings giving the beer a hazy appearance.

Give this beer a shot or replace Southern Cross with a hop of your choice, just make sure to keep bitterness to 40IBU’s.
