Gachupines' rating

Gachupines (1049) - USA - OCT 15, 2012
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is hops, mild pine and citrus. Flavor is intensely hopped but with a strong fruitiness. Definitely a strain of hop I’m not familiar with, very interesting though. Finish is a little dry, could be a little rounder and better balanced. Other than that this is a fantastic beer.
