On tap at echelon, pours clearish golden with nice lacing. Aromas and taste are bitter hops, spice, and oranges. Nice hoppy flavor on a lighter body. They definitely got everything out of a usually lackluster hop varietal.

Draft sample at Maple Shade and a growler. Pours out a moderate golden/amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grainy/spicy rye bread, lemony/coconut Sorachi hops. Taste is complex, nice grainy rye notes, lemony coconut hop bitterness, light bitter fruits, a nice blend of rye bread with some lingering lemony bitterness. Really tasty.

Tap at Maple Shade. Pours out an attractive dark golden color with a one finger fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, nice tropical fruit notes and light malt. Taste is complex, citrusy./lemon notes, tropical fruits, light coconut, slight sweet malt balance and a nice bitter finish. Definitely an interesting hop, I liked this one a lot.

Draft at Maple Shade. Poured an orange/amber body a smaller fizzy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, peach, lime and a weird touch of wet dog. Medium to fuller chewy body with strong carbonation of small tightly packed bubbles. Lots and lots of hops coming through producing all types of tropical citrus and a touch of pine. I’m really digging this hop, good good stuff.

Tap in Maple Shade. Orange-copper with a lacing, short beige head. Nose pretty lemon and grapefruit, spicy Sorachi, taste the same, mild but juiy bitterness, creamy medium body with low-level resin. Medium bitterness, dry. Love the juicy hops, creamy feel -- this could be an IH favorite.
