A few months ago, Yazoo asked customers to vote on their favorite Hop Project. That poll was conducted on their blog and the winner was #13. This was rebrewed for #50, so those of you that missed it now have another chance to try it. How can you tell if you are looking at a six pack of #50? The notching on the side bottle label should indicate 3rd week of May. Grab some now before they are gone. I bought mine at Kroger, so it should not be too hard to find.

Aroma is average malt (cookie, meal, caramel), heavy hop (flowers, citrus, pine), average yeast (dough) with notes of pear and green apple. Medium bodied, gritty texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

Strykzone (6223) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Amber gold with a nice light tan head. Big tart citrus aroma. Flavor to match. So well hopped! Caramel doesn’t come close to balancing the hops. Very nice! Bitter tart aftertaste. A big and bold beer. Well done.

Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition festival. Pours golden / amber with a small off-white head. The aroma has grapefruit / tropical fruits, light onion and sweet caramel malt to balance. Medium prickly body with micro carbonation. The flavor starts drier than the aroma with rind of grapfruit, woody hops and solid malt. Well balanced tasty IPA.

Cybercat (4745) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2011
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.
