Alright, so we know Polly's DDH Pale Ales are the underrated full bodied, high juice arm of the brewery all their brewers love - how do they take them to the next level though?
A 45kg dry-hop charge of Citra, Mosaic, Cryo Simcoe and Idaho 7? It's a good idea, but not quite next level.
How about the whirlpool? They've tried regular T-90 pellets on their own, they've tried Cryo hops on their own, what happens when you make a combination of the two?
Layered bitterness on top of the usual Polly's high juice is what happens! A double addition of 5kg each of Idaho 7 and Cryo Idaho 7 in Bonnie create a beer that zaps with clean bitterness to start, brings in the usual Polly's tropical notes through the middle, and ends on a final crescendo of pithy citrus peel.
