Cascade ..... can't get enough. Aside from that so far I don't mind northern brewer as a good bittering hop. EKG for the english bitters.

That said I have only tried about 5 hop varieties so far :)

well as im about 1000kms away from humpty doo i dont know but one can only hope.last i heard was the local palmerston hbs was getting into brew on premises style stuff.maybe bonk who posts on grumpys and lives in darwin may know?
as far as im aware there is only one hbs in the entire darwin region.must be a great money spinner if you can teach people how to make cub style beers as this brand sells mountains of the stuff in the territory.

Been there, drank that :(

I guess thats why you order from interstate.
Despite the penchant for VB in the NT, Darwin still has some good watering holes.
Loved the Parap Tavern, especially the strippers spinning wheels with their tits :eek:

Cant say I have experimented with Hops too much yet so I'm not sure what my favourite may be.
I have dry hopped with Goldings. POR, and Saaz I think it was. As I've only done kits I'm not sure how much flavour was imparted to the brew.
I'll keep going though and I'm sure the favourite one will pop up sooner or later.

cheers

I'm finding new favourites every day & to be honest even hops like the much maligned POR (which i'd always found skunky/cheesy) are fantastic fresh.

Nelson Sauvin from NZ is my latest love affair :wub: , the wine like character of this hop is truly unique.

If you want to try a unique Uk hop, give Progress a try, a fabulous hop fresh (pungent woodland aromas), but (like POR) avoid like the plague if stale.

cheers Ross
