A high alpha hop with distinctive tropical, grapefruit and passion fruit characters (17.5-19.5 % AA)

Breeding: 

Brooklyn is a New Zealand bred triploid variety with parentage from the New Zealand variety Southern Cross and a selected New Zealand male. Developed at New Zealands Plant and Food Research and released in 2015. The essential oil profile displays characteristics of intense fruit, citrus and resinous pine.

Selection: 

Delivers intense fruity oils with top notes of baking spice and sweet hay. Selected on good agricultural performance and late maturity this variety is currently the most recently selected from the Hops with a Difference programme.

Brewing: 

Brooklyn is a big hop delivering high alpha acid with a generous weight of oil while its lower cohumulone provides a soft well-structured but solid bitterness. Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit.

Beersuit...have you had a taste yet?

 

 

I have everything for a  Dr Smuto Golden Ale and saw Brooklyn getting bagged up today.

I grabbed 100g and I recon I'm going to use it instead of Amarillo.

 

 

Edit - forgot how to spell ale

I did get a chance to taste it. Smooth bitterness but all I got was a dusty cinnamon flavour. The guys at work are still bagging me out about it. They both loved it and got passionfruit and tropical fruit.

It's interesting just something that my pallet doesn't like though.

I grabbed a few bags of this last week.
I just opened one and its resin city, the whole bag is stuck together and sticky as.
Smells great, I'm about to dump 100g in the whirlpool. Attached File  ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1460698263.234171.jpg   730.42KB   35 downloads

I did 10g FWH  for 21 liters and made the rest to 40 IBU's.

Just tasted the gravity sample and it's smoother than I expected.

To be honest it doesn't have a lot of flavour like I was expecting after reading the NZ hops web page, I had an amber IPA with some in this evening and it was distinctive enough to be noticible but still subtle. It is bitter however. My golden ale is a good drop.

> Delivers intense fruity oils with top notes of baking spice and sweet hay.

I'd agree here.

 

> Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit.

Perhaps the aroma but not in the flavour. This is also some-what contradictory to the other quote.

I like it.

Currently drinking a Rye IPA with Chinook, Cascade and Brooklyn - works really well.
