Profile

Vic Secret is a hop variety that was developed in Australia and is known for its unique flavor and aroma profile. It is a relatively new hop variety that was first released in 2010 by the Hop Products Australia (HPA) breeding program, and has since gained popularity among craft brewers worldwide. Like her sister Topaz, she is the result of crossing an Australian high alpha variety and a male variety from the UK.

Vic Secret hops are characterized by their strong tropical fruit and pine aroma, with distinct notes of pineapple, passionfruit, and citrus. They also have a high alpha acid content, which makes them well-suited for use in both bittering and aroma additions in brewing. Their flavor profile has been described as complex, with a balance of sweetness and bitterness, making them a versatile hop for a range of beer styles.

Overall, Vic Secret hops are a great addition to any brewer's toolkit, particularly for those looking to experiment with unique and bold flavors in their beer.
