Released in 2012 Polaris is part of the new wave of ���flavour hops�� released by the H�_ll Institute. It imparts intense and lingering impressions of wintergreen menthol eucalyptus and green apple candy with a Hallertau-like sweetness and herbal note. Polaris can also exhibit a pungent exotic spice flavor early in fermentation. With typically very high alpha acid levels and high oil content Polaris makes its presence known in IPAs Brettanomyces fermentations and Belgian styles.
