Vic Secret™ Whole Hop 5kg

Vic Secret™ is lighter and less dominant than Galaxy, yet there is still more than enough character for Vic Secret™ to embellish the world of beer flavour. The clean, distinct fruit and pine characters are best accessed by dry hopping or whirlpool additions. Late kettle additions have been found to impart a pleasant earthy character, but little fruit. It has very high levels of alpha acid so brewers may find it easier to craft the right balance in their beer by dry hopping. Both the raw hops and the cold infusion of this variety are strongly characterised by green fruits, such as gooseberries and quince, sweet candied fruits, citrus notes of grapefruit and red berries, such as strawberries. Pineapple and passion fruit are also particularly prominent. The overall aroma profile is rounded off with intense floral notes of rose and apple blossom.
