COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hop growers sent us a sample of a new experimental hop. HBC342. It’s so new it doesn’t even have aname. It’s described as having watermelon and cantaloupe flavors. We brewed up this delicious IPA to test out the hop. Fruity, with a good hop backbone.

Draft sample at the brewery. Bright golden. Thin top. Decent citric aroma. But drinks like some kind of fruity punch, with a sweetness up front that reminds me of those powdered fruit candy snacks. Very thin. Citric finish, kinda. (#5228, 8/29/2013)
