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.

Clear copper pour with a tall, fluffy off white head that ahs great retention. Aroma is fruity, light cereal, biscuit, grassy and citrus hops, light passion fruit. Flavor is light sweet cereal, toast, biscuit, sweet grass, passion fruit, floral and passion fruit. Medium body nice creamy entry, medium, blanketing carbonation and off dry, still creamy finish. Really tasty stuff, great mouthfeel, interesting hop character.

Barreras (1176) - 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.

GJF (1348) - 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 (6707) - 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."

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.

unclemattie (4349) - Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
24oz bottle. Pale color. White chunky foam, sexy lace. Aroma of skunky resin. Heavenly nose. Toasted grains, pale malts, and loads of hops smell. Sticky texture. Very bold, pale grains backbone. Citrus oil bitterness, lingering hops bite. Absolutely delicious. Finishes herbal & earthy. (4137)
