Azacca is a big favourite here at Polly’s HQ and for good reason. Named for the Haitian god of agriculture, and bred specifically to accentuate the intensely sweet, tropical notes it imparts, we find this varietal grossly underused and underrated in a sea of more popular hype hops. Letting it do its thing in a single hop showcase seemed the most fitting tribute for this awesome hop, and in a “well, why not” move we decided to up the dry-hop bill to DIPA levels, with an insane 40kg added during fermentation.
Wrapped up in a hearty lashing of LA3 for maximum suspension, the result is a thick, juicy IPA, bursting with tonnes of mango, stone fruit, and pineapple notes, before levelling off with a healthy tickling of bitterness on the end for ultimate balance.
