When hop scientists in New Zealand began working on a top-secret thiol-enriched blend of Phantasm thiol powder and fruit-forward Motueka hops, they never expected that the high concentrations of cysteine-bound 3SH precursors and terpene-alcohols would create a chain reaction of flavor perception that would cause the hops to become… dangerously flavorful. That’s why this summer we formed an emergency task force – under the most dangerous conditions, our R&D brewers and the brewers from Pizza Port worked around the clock to create Mega Extra, an extra pale ale capable of blasting the flavor right out of Mega Motueka and into a delicious Fort George Beer.
