Eddyline fresh hop beer in glass

Fresh hop release season is my favourite time of year … I’m like a kid in a candy store. My goal is to review as many as possible this year and share my thoughts with you all in Hoppiness-land! First up is Hop Project #9 from the team at Eddyline Brewing based in Nelson.  Eddyline have partnered with local hop producers Clayton Hops and used fresh, green fresh Motueka hops. The aromas are a little muddled for this reviewer.  A mixture of pine resins and banana which doesn’t quite work. The beer is still easy-drinking, light for a hazy and not too soupy which will appeal to many drinkers who think they are over the haze-craze!
