Best Quote During Tasting
My favorite part was when the doctor farted and then blamed it on his shoe.
|Aroma - This smells like oranges. Not orange zest, straight up oranges. It also smells like raspberries and there's a bit of tart melon like cantaloupe that sneaks in the back.|
|Appearance - Just like the other hop trial beers, it's a clear, light gold beer with a fluffy white head.|
|Flavor - It's juicy and it's got a bit of a dry bite to it. It's interesting. The juiciness is that same orange mixed with melon and the raspberry shows up just barely but enough to make an impact. The beer finishes dry but all that juice from the hops doesn't allow that dryness to stick around very long. The malts are just there for balance and sweetness and they play their part.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium+ and the body is medium for a crisp, tingling sensation.|
|Overall Impression - I literally am not trying to be funny when I say this one was a bit of an enigma. It was big and juicy but dry and almost earthy at times. It had a lot going on but it all worked well together. It came off a little sweeter than I prefer because of that hop character and if you're looking for a typical "juicy hop" this may not be what you're after. Overall, this series is absolutely amazing and I recommend to everyone that they go out and give each one a try.|
