One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Keg at Brew Dog Shoreditch, 25/02/13. Note for self - 6.9% ABV request style change to IPA. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nose is malt, citrus, orange, lemon sherbet, biscuity, wheatabix. Taste comprises bitter orange, grass, hops, caramel, sugars. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, bitter dry finish. Ok drinkable stuff but a bit one dimensional and not one I’d bother with again given a choice.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Nottingham. Hazy gold with white head. Initially quite a harsh, resinous flavour moving towards quite a peachy flavour, bitter, lasting. Interesting beer but not a quaffer for me.

Medium body and moderate-high carbonation. Hides abv and drinks well.
