This is an IPA brewed exclusively with eXperimental hop #342. They didn't know what the cross breeds were, and neither do I.

A nice golden pour. Small head, a bit soapy, but nice lacing.

Aroma is citrus, tropical and hint of pine. Some bubblegum as well.

Light sweet biscuit starts off the taste. The hops are there and prevalent. Not really dominant, maybe b/c the malt is a bit subdued. I think they want this beer to highlight the hop to see how people like it.
Tropical and touch grassy. Persimmon and pommelo. Very light green pine. Light malt, too.
It seems this hop may be a cascade/NZ hop--that's my unprofessional opinion.

This makes a nice beer. The structure and complexity is a bit short. But that's not the point of this brew.

Serving type: on-tap
