A hop that tastes of bubble gum? Seriously? No, we did not believe it either. But it does! This is one unique, son of a bitch of a hop. Lemony, deep, musty with a smoothness which belies its power. This hop is lemony like a lemon who was angry earlier but is now tired because of all the rage. This hop of Japanese origin is best enjoyed trying to make sushi from your gold fish, or trying to persuade your girlfriend (or boyfriend maybe) to dress up as a Geisha for Valentines Day.

Bottle 330ml. Thanks to @igniztion ! Pours golden hazy/cloudy on a compact white head. Wonderful aroma, pine and hops, shocking amount of aroma heading your way. Taste is, well no other way to tell it, bubblegum. Also pine taste, especially in the aftertaste. Not too bitter, bit the aftertaste is hanging in there, with a kind of bitter taste hanging in the most. Overall good beer, strange that this beer only got hops, but wonderful experience, RateBeer Thanks!! :)

Bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Memory banks rate. Yep, bubblegum. Sorachi is too much for me, kinda ruins things. OK.

Bottle from the brewery, drunk at home 11th June 2011 with tashi - IPA is Dead set #1 tasting. Bubblegum nose, along with sharp fruit notes (blackcurrants with the stalks in! says Dave) Whisky notes too. I liked it.

PotjeBier (2922) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2014
Backlog, vertical tasting of all 4 in the Beer Temple (tap), shortly after release. Golden to amber color, white head, good lacing. Aromas: herbal, pine needles. Retronasal: herbs (tarragon/dragon?). Herbal flavor, some bitterness, hints of acidity. Medium bodied. Herbal finish, slightly dry and eventually rather bitter. Very interesting.

Svesse (8129) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2014
(Bottle) Amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots, citrus, orange marmalade, lemon, a touch of black-currant and rye bread. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, rye bread, a touch of strawberries and generous amounts of floral, lemony hops in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

La bomba de Sorachi, el lpulo ms anaranjado de la historia, huele y sabe literalmente a chupa chups de naranja, el amargor es como el de la mermelada de naranja, no como el del lpulo. Sorachi siempre manda.

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bright amber, quite a bit of yeast, no foam, raspberry, sugary bonbons, cotton candy, jam, molasses, roses, interesting to try to get familiar with the hop, but not too pleasant.
