First Eclipse | The first beer in Europe brewed with this new Australian hop!

Vocation x Simply Hops x HPA

Introducing Eclipse® a new, big-hitting hop from Australia. Bursting with sweet mandarin, citrus peel and fresh pine needles, Eclipse® hops are as fruity as they come.

Developed by HPA and supplied by Simply Hops, Vocation are honoured to be the first brewery in Europe to release a beer with this fruit-forward hop!

Eclipse® is another exciting addition to the range of uniquely Australian flavour hops that already includes world renowned varieties such as Galaxy®, Vic Secret™, Ella™ and Enigma®.

Eclipse® was first developed by HPA's hop breeding program in 2004, but its ancestry can be traced as far back as 1915. The subsequent generations of cross pollination featured varieties such as Fuggle, Brewer’s Gold, Comet and Pride of Ringwood in the Australian environment.

A huge thank you again to our friends at Simply Hops and HPA for partnering with us to brew this beer.
