We’re big fans of experimental beers made with a single hop (http://boakandbailey.com/2009/05/10/single-hop-beers-educational/) and (so far) have yet to have a bad beer from Barnsley’s Acorn Brewery, so we just had to try Motueka IPA (http://www.acorn-brewery.co.uk/motueka.asp) at the Pembury Tavern (http://www.individualpubs.co.uk/pembury/).

The beer was fantastic — quenching, herbal and dry, with perhaps just a hint of banana in the aroma — but, on this showing, we’d be hard pressed to identify Motueka hops (http://www.nzhops.co.nz/varieties/motueka.html) if we came across them again without a bloody great big sign telling us they were there. We tend to hop from beer to beer if there are several on offer but went back for more of this, Tandleman-style (http://tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/passport-to-pimlico.html), which must say something.

For more single hop action check out Geoff’s fascinating homebrewing experiments (http://hoptopic.wordpress.com/2010/03/05/single-hop-series-3-nelson-sauvin/).
