2.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer smelled very good and I was excited to taste it. It tasted incredibly buttery and almost no hop flavor came through. I hope this was just a bad bottle.

I canít necessarily keep up with the batch #ís, but the hop project is the best offering from Yazoo. Well balanced. Hoppy and not too malty.

On tap, a little unclear which one it was exactly but I believe this one. Very nice aroma of piney and citrus hops. Medium body, donít notice any alcohol. Flavor nicely bitter hops, floral, pine, and grapefruit. Minimal malt balance. Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear coppery brown with a respectable buff-colored head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy with a strong fruity overtone that is as much apple/pear as citrus. Hoppy flavor is quite bitter but not fiercely so, with hints of grass and fruit. Texture is smooth and minimally fizzy. An interesting IPA, not my favorite but still worthy.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy amber pour with a tan head. The aroma is filled with floral hops and a lot of pine. The medium body has an oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is very bitter with a long finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is really nice, piney and floral. The beer has a creamy head with a decent amount of lacing. The beer pours hazy amber in color. The hops and malt are balanced, but not remarkable. It leaves a slightly yeasty aftertaste. Overall, the aroma and appearance are above average, but the taste isnít anything special.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. So this system Yazoo has got for identifying which Hop Project beer you got is pretty convoluted. This one was bottled 5/25/2011 as best I can tell, so Iím not sure if Iím in the right place. That said, the pour is a nice orange with a medium head that dies down to a few bubbles and a thin film. Aromas are an interesting mix of hops... Iím guessing Cascade from the pungent lemon and cat pee side of the nose, but there is an airiness to them with a little bit of a tropical edge. Flavor is more on the resin and lemon side of things again, with a perfect amount of malt to balance things out for a great IPA. I have really been impressed with what Yazoo is up to while here in TN and wish they had a little better distribution.
