COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Project #26 was bottled 2nd week of Feb (look on the left side of the label for the bottled date). For this batch, we first wort hopped with Cascade and Nugget, and then added Amarillo and Centennial at 30 minutes left, Cascade and Nugget at 5 minutes left, and dry hopped after six days with about 1 lb/ barrel of Centennials. It has a wonderful floral nose, followed by rounded grapefuity bitterness, and finishing crisp and dry with a little bit of lingering chewy hop resins.

Pours clear dark copper under a short-lived white head. The aroma is light citrus and pine. The flavor is lightly bitter and smooth. Light bodied and easy drinker. Pleasant, if not over the top.

Source:12 oz bottle from Midtown.
Glass:Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
Appearance:Clear amber pour with a two finger off white head.
Aroma:Bread and caramel malts present with a nice floral note and a hint of citrus.
Flavor:Very malt forward, with a loud caramel note in the front. Floral and citrus flavors finish up.
Palate:Medium body with good carbonation.
Overall:This is a step back in the direction of solid IPAs from Yazoo. Floral and citrus abound. The malt was a little too dominant in this one, but overall, a very nice beer.

The Dan Journal #329. Tasted 3/1/10. 12oz bottle. Hazy with an orange amber hue. Bubbled off-white head. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit. Touch piney and citrus candy. Very nice nose! Medium to full bodied with a very bright and modest effervescence. Sweet malt bill, but it plays second fiddle to the hops. Good sticky body. Lingering hoppy finish. Touch caramel in the malt bill. Hops are dominated but not exclusively piney and grapefruity. Very nice indded!

Bottle from Kroger on McGavock, which seems to always get the Hop Projects soon after they come up. Pours a very nice deep red amber with an off white head. Pleasant floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very pale caramelly malt backbone with grapefruit rind bitterness that carries through to the finish. The clingy hoppy finish seems to have a nagging leafy green nuance that I don’t really care for. Perhaps the hops need to meld some, but I am not patient enough to wait, as I have three kids and beer is the only thing that keeps me sane.
