We are continuing our love affair with Australian and New Zealand hops. This one is bittered with Stella & Magnum and then Stella & Topaz were used for flavor, aroma, & dry-hopping. It has a great aroma of ripe citrus fruits and a really nice pleasant bitterness.

Orange pour with creamy with head and lace. Aroma of citrus hops and nice caramel malt. Sweet maltiness and a nice citrus bitter that lingers. Medium light bodied with smooth carbonation.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Monte. Thanks. Pours a hazy copper color with a small off white head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is medium in strength with grapefruit and mangoes. The flavor is bitter hops forward with grapefruit, pine and some light caramel. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter pine. Overall: Some of the bitterness was just a bit harsh on finish, ease up on the magnum guys. That minor quibble aside--this went down easy, another please.

12 oz, bottled Feb-05-13. Clear amber-copper with a lasting half-inch of foam. Nose is spicy and fresh green herb, citrus zest, caramel and some light papaya. Taste is piquant green herb, resin, citrus with the bitter pith, toasted nut, and toffee with faint hints of mango and banana. Near-medium body has light-medium carbonation and finishes with a wooden bitterness.

I’ve been off and on with the Hop Project series, and lately I’ve been fairly indifferent. This one, though, is one of my favorites of the series. Lots of citrusy bitterness, and the earthy maltiness seems muted a bit. Very crisp and easy to drink.

Bottle. Bottled about 1 1/2 months ago. Pours deep gold with a persistent pillow of white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, light bubblegum. Taste is a nice bitterness up front with citrus, grass, a bit of pine and bubblegum. Very pleasant.

I can only presume that this is #70, as it was bottled Jan 2013 and is the only active Hop Project with multiple ratings. Clear medium amber with a good foamy head retention (lasts entire drink) and thick streamers of lace. The taste begins and ends with hop drenched malt. Consistent taste/consistency throughout; very drinkable, especially with food.

Tasted on draft at the Yazoo tap room on 3/7/13. Pours clear golden orange with a thick and rocky off-white head that leaves a thick and rocky layer of lace. The nose is light caramel and bread malt with a hops aroma that reminds me of drying pine sap and some grapefruit peel. The flavor has a bit more malt presence up front, moving to very intensely bitter pine sap, pine needle, and grapefruit peel. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, very bitter grapefruit peel and pine finish.

Assuming Santa gave me the #70. This was rather enjoyable, the most interesting thing about the beer was the IMMEDIATE crisp finish. The hop profile just jumps off the cliff once this one isn’t on the tongue. Thanks Santa

Growler at Filling Station. Pours a golden copper color with a wonderful retaining cloud head. Smell is hop citrus with a faint caramel bread malt. Taste is bitter quite hoppy and quite malty. New Zealand hops very apparent they are more mellow and less floral grapefruit, quite nice. I like the love affair with the New Zealand hops!
