bottle thanks to bleeng. Yay, my Tenn tick! Pours a clear amber with a nice off-white head. nose is floral/perfume, mainly. Taste is floral and like eating a raw hop bud. Not much on the sweet malt to balance. mouthfeel is bitter. Decent IPA, but not my type.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Growler. Mostly clear coppery with a white head. Earthy malt and citrus hop aroma. Well balanced malt and hop flavor that also has that earthy hop that was detected in the aroma. Better than some of these have been.

6 pack from Kroger. It’s really weird to pick up Hop Project and Moo Hoo at the local grocery store, but it the most awesome way. These Hop Projects are slowly getting back on the right track. I was just about to give up on the series but then it showed up right down the road from me. This one is different than most other IPA’s like many of the latest HP’s have been. It has a distinct rosemary type flavor and aroma, it’s almost minty too. There is some tongue-scraping maryjane bite as well. A few sips gives light to a fruity character, something like mango. Halfway through a bottle, the hop flavor seems to thin out. I thought this was a different type of IPA and still very enjoyable. I’m still waiting for Yazoo to go back to their roots with this stuff though.
