My Hop Garden

I've been growing hops for the last two years now, and this hardy vine only grows in the warmer months, dying off during winter, leaving a rootstock in the ground ready to shoot again once it warms up. Seems this season has been warm enough as its beginning to flower, this should be a decent crop and i should get a few batches of beer out of it, its a Chinook variety so an American Pale ale rich in pasionfruit and citrus aromas will be called for.
