Polly's Brew Co - The Hop Studio: HBC 586 - 5.4% (440ml)

"Through every iteration of our growth over the last demi-decade, one thing that has persisted throughout is this brewery’s love of hops, and how we’ve born an entire business that now looks after the livelihoods of fourteen team members from this love. The Hop Studio felt like a natural extension of this love - showcasing the single most complex, wonderfully diverse ingredient we use in our process bar none. Part of our brewing journey has been the development of our reputation with our hop merchants to the extent we get priority access to the hop varietals that are setting the phasers to hype over in the United States. Part of the Hop Breeding Company’s experimental program at YCH farms, HBC 586 is widely accepted as the most successful trial from the most recent batch of releases from the program. A hop that is positively bursting at the seams with flavour; we’ve been completely taken in by the medley of mango, guava, lychee, and freshly cut citrus notes, but backed up with a slight herbal edge that keeps it from falling into overwhelmingly sweet territory.
