Hop Project #34 was bottled third week of August. For this batch, we decided to feature a hop we have never used before, Sorachi Ace. We used Warrior hops at the beginning of the boil, and then the Sorachi Ace at 45 min, 5 min, and dry hopped in the fermenter.

12oz bottle purchased from Riverside Beverage in Chattanooga $2. This was bottled the third week of August so it was about a month old. Dark amber color and a smell that to me was quite unremarkable. The taste however really stumped me. It was good and quite hoppy but the flavor was a strange herb that I could not place. I am sure it was the sorachi ace hops and Iím not sure Iíve tasted those before. It was really mind-bogglign as to what I was tasting. I drank it fast so I must have liked it!

Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours grapefruit coloured, mildly cloudy. Generous retained head, 3/8" head. Mildly hoppy aroma. High IBU, feels 75, and erases some palate. Big alpha from Warrior and then Sorachi, which also lends a taste of lemon. Good, though a tad of sourness in the finish. A tad above average mouthfeel. Good hop mix in this one.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Taste thanks to Richmond crew! Hazy candy orange, thin white ring for a head. Sawdusty, earthy nose, light peanut spice with faint citrus. Flavor has more of the dust, light grapefruit snd earth, bit of orange and also more biting bitterness in finish. Decent, bit muted, would like less bitterness and more dust, bitterness makes it too traditional.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, hazy, large dishwater like head, tannish, clumpy lacing, fairly strong carbonation.   Somewhat of a musty wet hop nose, slight dank basement, touch of wet cardboard (minor).   Hop tea up front, suprisingly flat tho.   Goes over quickly, hops up front leaving a musty/dusty basement like backside. &bnsp Again, minor wet carboard on the exit.   Not enough body on this one, dispite the carbonation I saw.   Tiz smooth, flavorful, just a little more dank than I would like.   Could use a little more bubbley mouthfeel.   Yeah, hop tea would be a good way to describe this, with a touch of dank basement and minor cardboard.   Not bad tho.   Thanks Jimmy for the freebie!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/19/2011 Source:Other) Malty caramelized sugars in the aroma. Grassy and hay like hop aroma. Clear dark golden. Grassy resiny hop flavor with caramel, toast and some nuttiness. Finish is medium with hefty residual bitterness.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Richmond 13th. Medium amber, decent head. Aroma both grassy, herbal, and a touch of medicinal green hop. Flavor was faint caramel with a bitter hop finish, quite green in character and floral. Not lemon like other Soriachi samples Iíve had. Not bad, but not my thing.
