Debittered Leaf is the petal part of the hop flower and this beer is the first in New Zealand to use this product. The benefit of using this new hop product is that you can add the flavour and aroma without worrying about adding additional bitterness. This is ideal for making lower alcohol beers which you want to have a noticeable level of hops in the flavour and aroma.
In LilHop we have used the Citra Noble Hop debittered leaf to dry hop so we could get the aroma and flavour but not any additional bitterness.
LilHop is impressively pale in colour, with a wonderful citrus and pineapple aroma and flavour. A lightness of body and outrageously quenching. Hello summertime.
