COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Still in development, hop 291 is in the limelight in this single-hop IPA. Despite being a solo act, 291 imparts complex flavors and aromas including fruity and floral notes as well as hints of blueberry and black pepper spiciness.

Classic Sierra Nevada IPA, smooth, great hop profile especially on the back end, well balanced, goes down easy, definitely a top notch IPA. That slight spice really adds to the flavor, mixes well with the hops.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear, dark gold with 2 fingers white head. Aroma is fruity, loads of citrus. Maybe a little blueberry. Taste is medium bitter, follows aroma. Definite blueberry taste. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Very good.

Barreras (1230) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours a golden yellow color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is dry, with a good malt hop flavor and a hint of pepper in the aftertaste. A good bitter finish, not overbearing with a freshness even for a 2014 beer.

Golden pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt and fruity hops. Taste is creamy, tasty hops. Fruity hops in the finish. Nice lacing.

GJF (1364) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2015
On tap at Parlor City in CR. Big, dense rocky head. I got no real aroma. Flavors are fruity (though not really the blueberry they say), a dry finish. Good, not great.

slowrunner77 (6925) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
"Kind of excited about this one, but I’m not sure if I just don’t like this hop or if its something else. I got some floral notes and there’s more than ample bitterness, but instead of the berries and pepper promised I got skunk, in the nose and a little in the flavor. Enough to distract. Not a bad beer, but not all that great, either."

Pours an orange color with a large foamy off white head. Notes of pepper, caramel, floral hops, grass, and grains.

Beerman6686 (5281) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
This one poured a bright light orange color with a white head. Aroma was of very green fresh picked resinous hops. Flavor was similar with mild caramel in the back. Soli.d

Slightly piney and resinous hop profile balanced well against slight fruity notes and sweeter medium malt body.

The newly developed 291 varietal hops used in this beer has intense floral and berry bouquet. Light to medium bodied mouth feel. It's strange but it's like I only feel the hops on my tongue and nowhere else in my mouth with their delicate bite.
