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.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pours hazy amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, honey, and other sweet citrus fruits. Taste is sweet citrus hop with a great hop bite finish. Excellent because the aroma lead me to believe it would be sweeter than bitter but itís not, also has enough malt backbone to support the bitterness 8 4 8 4 14..... Had on tap as 50 at the brewery. Clear gold, beautiful head retention. Aroma is insanely crisp and fresh, lots of tangerine, orange, pineapple, mango. Taste has more bitterness than the sweet aroma would lead me to believe, quite PNW in taste. Truly a marvelous beer. I want to have massive quantities of this as fresh as possible at all times at my house. 9 4 9 4 18

Source: 12 oz bottle purchased from Frugal MacDoogalís in Nashville.
Appearance: Poured a clear amber/orange color with a two finger, slightly off white head.
Aroma: All about the hops. Notes of grapefruit and pine dominate.
Flavor: A little bit of weak caramel malt. Pine and citrus hops and a citrus finish.
Palate: Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and solid carbonation.
Overall: Iím always pleased with the Hop Project beers. This one is no different, although not my favorite of the bunch. Very solid IPA though.

Thanks to Butters for this bottle. Slightly hazy deep reddish orange with a tall lasting off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit. The flavor has a bitterness that build all the way to the finish with a firm malt support. I really liked this one.

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.

Bottle from Sean. Thanks. Pours out a dark orange color with a tan head on it. Smell is full of orange peel and a nice hop smell. Smells kinda like hopslam light. Taste is fruity and very citrusy. Moderate carbonation makes it very drinkable. Smooth, and this really compares to two hearted in my mind. Good stuff, too bad they are limited to 6% because I think they could really brew some outstanding stuff.

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.
