Red Earth

Red Earth hops bring with them an altogether “Australian” depth of character. They’re a new Australian breed which carry a decidedly spicy, woody aroma and flavor with a citrusy under note. The name stems from the reddish hue cones exhibit as they emerge from the early, burr stage of development.

Developed by Rupert Ward in Western Australia, Red Earth is the culmination of a cross between Columbus and a Goldings-derived male variety. They were trialed recently over two seasons by Birbeck’s Brewing Company but they don’t appear to have been picked up in a commercial capacity by anyone else just yet. No analytical data appears to be available.
