750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead Willi Becher.
A~ light glowing yellow/orange with a nice head and a little lacing.
S~ spicy up front! hmm... earthy grass, schezwan, black pepper, and peppercorns all followed by a little tropical fruit mango, pineapple and a little grapefruit.
T~ follows the nose but more subtle here. a little less on the spice and more on the tropical fruit! love it!
M~ super smooth and refreshing, i could drink this all day long! nice carb. as well!
O~ this has to be my favorite pale offering from HF! i’m a sucker for spice and this hop really hits home! i don’t know how i missed this the last time it was around but its been years! i wonder if the last batch tasted like this as well?? (if anyone has any info, shoot me a message) otherwise just find a way to try this! totally worth it! hopscotch (11432) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a tiny, creamy, white head. The only things I can smell here are peppercorns - a multi-color blend. I Love all peppercorns as each one brings something different and wonderful to the table. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is peppery and modestly bitter. Low to no sweetness here. Lingering, pleasant, gentle bitterness in the finish. Great balance overall. Excellent. Bottle courtesy of ctipping! jc1762 (1651) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle shared at Travlr’s departure tasting. Poured into a snifter showing well filtered dull yellow with white foam around the rims.
The nose shows an extremely light pineapple profile.
The palate is lightly carbonated and full bodied. Flavors of pine resin without any sharpness. Balanced and rounded by malts without giving any bready notes. Resinous pine and lightly grapefruit pithy finish. GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2016
