Hermitage African Queen

To the untrained American ear, it can be difficult to distinguish between the New Zealand, Australian, and South African accents. What about the American pallet? Will all of these Southern Hemisphere hops share similar qualities? American brewers have fallen in love with the fruity, tropical and dank qualities found in hops from New Zealand and Australia.

At Hermitage, we were delighted to score some rare hops from South Africa: African Queen (also known as J-17). We put these exotic hops into our single hop program to find out more...Turns out they are delicious! Indeed sharing some of those qualities, tropical, citrus, dank, that make Southern Hemisphere hops so favored.
