It’s not difficult to see how the Australian hops variety, Summer, got her name when you breathe in her distinct notes of apricot and melon. Others have noted passionfruit and citrus. Summer is a low alpha aroma hop. It can be used late in the boil, but dry hopping is what really brings out its apricot and melon bouquet. The Malt Shovel Brewery just released their Mad Brewers Garden di Paradisi brew in February of 2014 with a mad mix of sweet, fruity hops including Summer.
