Most recent email from Niko hops talks about this new variety:

We are also pleased and excited to announce the availability of the hop variety Polaris. This is a "brand new high alpha hop with strong, pleasant, fruity, refreshing, Gletschereisbonbon (glacier-like) notes". We've also been given the descriptor of "glacier candy". Here's some stats:
Alpha Acids: 21.3%
Beta Acids: 5.5%
Cohumulone: 27%
Oil Content: 4.4ml/100g of dried cones (to put this into perspective Cascade is generally .7-1.4ml/100g)
Polaris Pricing: $25/lb, $14.50/8oz, $3.75/2oz


Looks pretty good to me! Have no idea what a glacier tastes like though... (cold? icy? hard? windy? slow moving?)

Anyone heard of them/used them before?

Cheers

Stef

Could use them in a lawnmower beer.....

Or a tribute beer to Megadeth. Call it 'Rust in Peace' Ale

I would guess they are quite wintergreen-flavoured (minty-anise).

Yuk?

Read elsewhere it's a german super cascade.

21% AA? Whoa.
