COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop that tastes of bubble gum? Seriously? No, we did not believe it either. But it does! This is one unique, son of a bitch of a hop. Lemony, deep, musty with a smoothness which belies its power. This hop is lemony like a lemon who was angry earlier but is now tired because of all the rage.  This hop of Japanese origin is best enjoyed trying to make sushi from your gold fish, or trying to persuade your girlfriend (or boyfriend maybe) to dress up as a Geisha for Valentine’s Day.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2014
(Bottle) Amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots, citrus, orange marmalade, lemon, a touch of black-currant and rye bread. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, rye bread, a touch of strawberries and generous amounts of floral, lemony hops in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

txolo (154) - SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
La bomba de Sorachi, el lúpulo más anaranjado de la historia, huele y sabe literalmente a chupa chups de naranja, el amargor es como el de la mermelada de naranja, no como el del lúpulo. Sorachi siempre manda.

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bright amber, quite a bit of yeast, no foam, raspberry, sugary bonbons, cotton candy, jam, molasses, roses, interesting to try to get familiar with the hop, but not too pleasant.
