Topaz is a relatively new hop varietal from Australia. Originally produced for its high bitterness, it has proven to offer excellent flavor and aroma to beer when added late in the boil and in dry-hopping. [wpex more="Read more" less="Read less"] A base of Pale and Vienna malts and a substantial amount of flaked oats were chosen to offer a full, round malt and cereal palate to this beer. This allows the Topaz to show off its earthy and grassy notes, reminiscent of English cultivars like Goldings and Fuggles, as well as its subtle hints of lychee and bright fruity characteristics. Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops all play a supporting role and allow the Topaz to take the lead. While not a blockbuster hop like Mosaic or Amarillo, Topaz brings its own finesse to this I.P.A. and the deeper ones gets into their glass, the more brightly it expresses. We hope you enjoy it!
