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.

lusikka (7590) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of lemon peel, some basil and fresh mint. Flavour of rich citrusy bitterness, chewy orange notes, sweetness and some resin. The bitterness kicks in quite nicely in the finish. Medium bodied. Quite classic in it’s bitterness, and it works as good as always. I found Comet to be even better, though.

Svesse (7031) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
(Draught at BrewDog Camden, London, 9 Apr 2014) Pale amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, tea, lemon peel and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, tea, lemon peel, a slightly sharp and metallic malt profile and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well made, possibly a bit one dimensional. Nice one.
