Who has the best hops in the world? Part II – Team Aus/NZ & Cyclone IPA

With an Aussie, a Kiwi and three Irishmen in the brewery, there’s always a lot of – let’s call it – debate. It could be about sports, it could be about weather – or it could even be about hops. A “discussion” about the various merits of hops from the Northern Hemisphere as opposed to those from the Southern half of the world, led to the first ever Eight Degrees Brewing Hop Off.

Team Ireland brewed Hurricane IPA using only Northern Hemisphere hops, while Scott and Cam shifted the focus to hops from Australia and NZ in their Cyclone IPA. David Miller – because there’s no such thing as a visitor to the brewery that doesn’t get a job – shot this video of Team Ireland explaining the reasoning behind their Hurricane IPA.
