Powerful wintergreen and eucalyptus make Polaris a vivid flavour component.

Breeding/Development: Germany. Released in 2012, Polaris is part of the new wave of “flavour hops” released by the  Hüll Institute.

Brewing Application: Aroma. With typically very high alpha acid levels and high oil content, Polaris makes its presence known in IPAs, Brettanomyces fermentations, and Belgian styles. Use a base malt with enough character to stand up to it!

Sensory: Intense and lingering impressions of wintergreen, pleasant fruit notes, with a Hallertau-like sweetness and herbal note. Can exhibit a pungent, exotic spice flavour early in fermentation.
