Olicana ® hops feedback
We’ve used English hop varieties Olicana and Jester from CharlesFaram for our first brew. Damn, big hits of grapefruit and orange peel coming through already. Biggest hitting UK hops I’ve experienced so far.
First taste of trial number 1. Pleased with this as a starting point. Peaches on the front end, floating on smooth pillowy goodness drifting into tangy orange and grapefruit from the Olicana & Jester hops from CharlesFaram

This is not a traditional English IPA. It uses some new, cryo-esk versions of Jester and Olicana (UK hops). There’s still some herbal and hedgerow notes, but by Jiminy, it’s got tropical fruit as well!
