Who has the best hops in the world? Part I – Team Ireland & Hurricane IPA

Is it the Northern Hemisphere? Or does Down Under (including New Zealand, of course) have the hop edge? We’ve decided to figure it out for ourselves. Aussie Cam has banded together with Kiwi Scott – a rare turn of events, as I’m sure you’re aware – to go up against Mike, John and Paudy’s Team Ireland in the first Eight Degrees Brewing Hop Off.

This week we brewed two versions of a hoppy IPA. You could call it a Howling Gale on steroids. 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.
